The song draws parallels between both Wes and Mo Bamba standing on the cliff face of fame. While the rapper was being pursued by labels, his basketball-playing pal was being chased by the likes of Duke, Kentucky, and Michigan. He explained to Genius
"My friend Mo Bamba, who was a draft pick, asked me to put his name in the song or somethin'. But, then I started freestylin' but I was freestylin' about all the people callin' me, and I guess it was just what I was talkin' about, and I was frustrated about and I made this one-take freestyle about Mo Bamba and how I'm like Mo Bamba, like I'm a athlete. I was being recruited the same way as athletes do. So, that's why I compared it."
