Songfacts®:

  • Tottenham MC Skepta, rap veteran Chip, and D-Block Europe's Yung Adz released this song as the lead single from their joint album Insomnia.
  • Waze is a GPS navigation software app owned by Google. Young Adz references on the hook how he uses the app to make his way around whilst dealing coke and heroin.

    When I trap I use Waze
    Mum said "Can you change your ways?"


    Waze users can report police traps, which is handy for Adz when he's selling drugs.
  • Minnesota producer Cardo supplied the instrumentation. The noted beatsmith has also collaborated with the likes of Travis Scott ("Goosebumps"), Kendrick Lamar ("GOD.") and Drake ("God's Plan").
  • During his verse, Chip namechecks D Block Europe's engineer, Prince Galalie, who engineered every song on Insomnia.

    I never did need a box or a key, tell Prince turn the tuning off
