  • This song finds Skepta spitting two verses in which he flexes his rise in the rap game.

    As soon as I wake up I be chasing my dreams
    All we do is win and we ain't changing the teams

    Skepta has fulfilled his dreams, now he has found success in the music industry.
  • J Hus croons the chorus, during which he talks about his hard work and sexual encounters with women. He also mentions "some mistakes that I gotta redeem," which likely is a reference to his eight-month jail sentence for carrying a knife in public. Skepta called for his fellow rapper to be freed from prison during a series of tweets that welcomed in the 2019 New Year.
  • During Sketa's second verse, he pays tribute to J Hus by aping his freestyle flow.
