Soulja Boy told MTV News about this tune: "That's the deepest I ever got on a song, period, in my career. I was just really speaking on different situations. Me becoming a celebrity, coming from high-school student to being a celebrity and having people hate on you. How my moms feel about the situation. It's mixed emotions all round my family. You got people asking for money, people feeling a certain kind of way now that I'm in the situation I'm in."
