Songfacts®:

  • This comic tale of men being hoodwinked by women, features the southern hip hop artist Ludacris.
  • The song's style is a take on the Chopped and Screwed remixing movement made famous in the Houston hip hop scene in the 1990s. The most famous proponent of this was DJ Screw, whose re-mixing method was to slow down the basic tracks of a cut ("Screwing"), before applying techniques such as skipping beats and record scratching to produce a "chopped-up" version of the original.
