The origins of this song lay in a beat from Black Diamond, a producer that's on Stalley's label. He produced it and sent it to me," the rapper recalled to Billboard magazine. "I remember just listening to it in the studio and I was just kind of zoned out. I'm like, 'Man, what do I do? I have to use this beat.'"
"I just kind of zoned out, and it gave me that feeling of when I was one of those loner, stoner kids, and you just kind of want to be alone and not be judged and vibe out a little bit," Stalley continued. "I actually kind of blacked out, went into the booth, turned out the lights, and told the engineer just to play the beat over and over again. I kept hearing that, 'boom boom bang bang system on loud.' And then I just freestyled melodies and lyrics all through it."
