Songfacts®:

  • Polo G was born Taurus T Bartlett on the north side of Chicago, Illinois. Rap music became an outlet for the Windy City teen to cope with the violent loss of several family members and friends. In 2017, he started releasing tracks on SoundCloud and YouTube, which slowly gained him a following.

    Polo G started bubbling the following year with the release of "Finer Things," a song he wrote while incarcerated in Chicago's Cook County Jail. The track garnered the interest of record labels, and Polo G ultimately decided to sign with Columbia.
  • This street record is Polo G's first chart hit. The track is a collaboration with his labelmate Lil Tjay, a rapper from the Bronx. It was a Columbia's A&R who linked them up.
