Songfacts®:

  • This is a song from The Land, a film which follows four teenage Cleveland boys who pursue their dreams of being professional skateboarders and get caught up in drug dealing. The soundtrack was executive produced by Nas.
  • The song finds Pusha T and Jeremih trading lines about getting their due financial reward. It was written by LunchMoney Lewis and Cirkut and produced by Dr Luke. According to Lewis, it was originally a song intended for himself. He told Genius:

    "That production was quick. Luke played that piano into his iPhone then sent to Cirkut - he cut it up and starting messing with drums. We were just vibin', it happened pretty quickly.

    I was a writer. We actually had a song to that beat and those chords, but when we heard Jeremih and Pusha's version, it was dope so we passed it along."
