Songfacts®:

  • T.I. links up with Pharrell Williams on this track, which also was also produced by the Neptunes member. We hear the Atlanta MC spitting some rhymes about the murder of his best friend and personal assistant Philant "Big Phil" Johnson in 2006. "Still wonder where it all went wrong/ Since Phil got killed I ain't never moved on/ Like I'm still in the club where the blows got thrown/ When my crown fell down and I got dethroned," he raps. Johnson was killed during a gunfight after T.I.'s entourage was caught up in an altercation outside an Ohio nightclub.
