The beat was supplied by Louis Bell, who produced or co-produced half of the tracks on Stoney
including the hit single "Congratulations
." Malone recalled:
"I was in the studio with Louis Bell, a super dope producer. He records all my stuff, so he made this beat, and I just started doing the melody. It's such a interesting flow, and it's hard to write to, so we sat down there for a couple hours, and I just wrote that. I went in and did a couple drunk scratches in the booth and just kind of figured it out. Going along and adding.
As the song got more and more structured with the melodies, it was easier to write the words. There's a different theme for the all the stuff. The song is about firearms, flossing, and just having fun. It's like coming back. If you hate on me, it's all going to come back."
