T.I. has had a conflict with rapper Lil' Flip, and part of this song seems directed at him, especially the last verse where T.I. raps: "You say you want to squash it, why you still talkin' s--t for."
This song uses a sample of Roberta Flack's version of The Impressions song "Gone Away."

T.I. was sued by rapper Motoe Blizzid, who alleged this song uses parts of his 2004 track "Reverence," which was distributed to various management companies, including TI representatives Relentless Management. According to legal documents, Blizzid claimed the two recordings have the "same rate of harmonic range" and "nearly identical instrumental melodic lines in terms of pitch, shape, and rhythm."
The song won for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.
This track was one of the most critically acclaimed of 2006. Vibe magazine named it as their Top Song of 2006 and Canadian/English cable channel Muchmusic ranked it #1 in their Top HipHop 2006 List.
