Songfacts®:

  • This is the mainstream targeted lead single from American rap group Three 6 Mafia's tenth studio album, Laws of Power.
  • This Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins produced track features guest vocals from singer Kalenna of Diddy's group Dirty Money and Latin-American hip-hop artist Pitbull.
  • DJ Paul from Three Six Mafia explained to Billboard magazine that the Laws of Power title was chosen "because we feel Three 6 Mafia has always been known for setting trends. Songs like "Sippin' Some Syrup," "Ridin' Spinners," "Tear Da Club Up" always set trends and started little things. Our songs were like the law of those trends. (On this album) each song represents a different law and what we feel you need to be doing at that time."
