This is the first single from British pop rap vocalist Tinchy Stryder's third studio album, Flashing Lights. The song features rapper and MC Tinie Tempah.
Stryder explained the cut to The Daily Star: "It's a statement of intent - there's more to come. I'm teasing ya. I haven't called it 'Gangsta' because I think I'm gangsta. Gangsta means cool. Like I'd say your jacket looks gangsta."
Stryder discussed the story of the song and its meaning in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "I heard the beats first and I thought there's something right about it and everything naturally came out. It's a reminder to people about staying humble."
