Album: 7 Winters, 6 Summers (2017)

Songfacts®:

    I'll say it to your face, don't gotta relay that s--t
    If Nick-ole a Kid-man, OJ that b---h!
  • The song samples Lil' Kim's 1996 track "Queen Bitch." "I wanted to pay homage to Kim," Remy Ma said during a Beats 1 interview. "I feel like she is like the Madonna of the hip-hop world to me. Her style is iconic, and I wanted to show homage and pay homage to that, so when I called her, I told her, I'm like, 'Listen, I want you on this record, but I just want you to be Kim. I want you to be the girl that was squatting down in a leopard thong, be that Kim.'"
