Two days before No Mercy came out, he begun another stint in jail after being picked up in a drug arrest in L.A.
  • This song features The Dream, who also co-produced the track with his partner Tricky Stewart.
  • Tip wrote on his website regarding the longplayer: "This album represents some of my best work inspired by my most recent best and worst life experiences. They say adversity brings forth inspiration so y'all can imagine how inspired I've been during the recording process for this album. I've been taking stock of myself and digesting everyone's comments and criticisms. Now it's my turn to express myself and take you into my mind. The real won't hate and the truth won't wait! If God is with me who can be against me."
