  • Lyrics
  • Having spat a verse to Lil Wayne's 2011 single, "John," Rick Ross found his favor returned when Weezy contributed a rhyme to this single. The song originally featured on Ross's 2010 holiday season mixtape Ashes to Ashes when T.I. was the guest rhymester. The remixed track was unveiled on April 4, 2011 by DJ Envy on New York's Power 105.1.
  • The track was produced by Virginia beatsmith Lex Luger, who previously helmed Ross's 2010 single "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)."
  • The video features not only a tie-clad Lil Wayne shooting pool inside of a nightclub, but also cameo appearances by DJ Khaled, Ace Hood, French Montana and Birdman. The clip shows Ross and Weezy enjoying the spoils of a drug dealer's way of life, but excludes anything about the consequences of their illegal and immoral lifestyle.
