Songfacts®:

  • The first of several collaborations between Rich Home Quan and Drake, fans had been waiting for the to pair to get together after Drizzy expressed regret to MTV News that he was unable to jump on the Atlanta rapper's "Type Of Way," calling it 2013's song of the summer. "At first it was through e-mail, and after that I went on tour with Wiz Khalifa, the Under the Influence Tour," Rich Homie told MTV. "We went to Toronto, he hit me up, I pulled up on him at his house and we dropped some music."
  • Rich Homie starts off his verse by quoting from Drake's "Started from the Bottom." The Atlanta rhymer has truly grinded his way up from the basement, having served 15 months in jail for burglary before his rap career took off.
