Songfacts®:

  • In this song Plies brags about his cars and the jewelry. MTV News asked the Florida rapper if he felt feel any guilt about releasing a song with such subject matter during a worldwide recession? Plies replied: "You need to feel like [you have plenty of money], bruh. Regardless of how bad it is, you need to feel better, man. The people that ain't got no money now, it was the same people who didn't have money four years ago. Now it's justifiable not to have money. In terms of the street perspective, it isn't as much money circulating in the streets as it once was. But in terms of our [national] economy, the recession was a scapegoat for corporate America, who can file bankruptcy now and re-create a whole 'nother company, debt-free. The people who are struggling now been struggling. Anytime you can create music and give hope, anytime you can make a person feel good... that record makes you feel good whether you hear it at 10 in the morning or 3 in the morning in the club. It makes you feel good."
