Amongst the celebrities that Green pokes fun at on this track are Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman, and his girlfriend, the singer Kate Nash. The background to Green's diss is a Twitter argument that he had with Jarman, who accused the rapper of chatting up Nash at a gig. Green told The Daily Star this track, "goes into the whole thing," adding. "I have a beautiful girlfriend.
