Songfacts®:

  • This song features Lil Wayne, T-Pain and Kanye West. Ross told MTV News that Lil Wayne's contribution was easy to get because of their friendship. He said: "Me and Wayne, I got a lot of respect and a lot of love, not only for Lil Wayne, but for Cash Money Records. Those were some of the few dudes that embraced me outside of the music long before the fame and fortune. I always felt it was genuine. Birdman and Slim been coming to Miami for years now. We developed a relationship being in and out of the studios. Anytime I called Wayne for anything - whether it's an album cut or remix - he was just there for me."
  • J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, the team behind many tracks on Ross' previous albums, produced this track. The League also helmed "Rich Off Cocaine," "Magnificent" and "Yacht Club" on Deeper Than Rap.
  • The title refers to the Maybach Music group, which is Ross' own label.
