Songfacts®:

  • Rich the Kid recorded this track at his Hollywood house after Lab Cook, a producer signed to his label Rich Forever, sent over some new beats. The first one that his engineer played was what eventually became this song. He explained to Billboard that the rhymes about splashing out his cash just came to his head.

    "I didn't even have to write it or anything. I just started recording, just put the headphones on and I just started recording the verse," he added. "It took me like 25 to 30 minutes to write the whole song."
  • Asked what inspired the lyrics, Rich the Kid said he'd been doing a lot of shopping prior to recording the track and he was "dripping so hard," buying designer items.
