Songfacts®:

  • T.I. enlisted the help of Lil Wayne for some rhymes on uptempo cut. The two rappers spit lines about a good night out on the town on the Rico Love and Earl & E produced track. T.I. told The Boombox: "The song itself feels like a classic southern, club, party record. It's a signature sound for New Orleans, for Atlanta, for Miami."
  • The video for the song was shot in Hollygrove, New Orleans. As well as T.I. and Lil Wayne it also features cameo appearances from Rico Love, Trae, Mack Maine, Birdman and T.I.'s sons.
