Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Pusha T and Kendrick Lamar trading bars and perspectives about the drug world to a sparse Nottz Raw soundscape. Pusha broke down the two different angles to HipHopDX.com: "We gave two perspectives [on the song]. [Kendrick Lamar] was giving more, looking from the inside of his home and how his family and his crusade through the drug epidemic affected him. I was giving you the junior high, high school start, showing you what it was and where I was at."
