Songfacts®:

  • The lead single from the Rich Gang 2 album is the first ever collaboration between Lil Wayne and Young Thug. Thugger has made it clear in a number of interviews that he considers Weezy to be the inspiration for his music career and he hopes to carry on the New Orleans' rapper's legacy.
  • The song features Wayne and Thug sounding similar to one another as they defend their girlfriends and promise to take 'kare' of them. The use of a closely identical cadence serves as the passing of the metaphorical torch from Lil Wayne to Young Thug.
  • The melodic, piano-filled beat was supplied by Young Thug's frequent collaborator, London on Da Track.
