  • Travis Barker told the story of this Kid Cudi-featuring song to Musicradar.com: "Kid Cudi and I got together and knocked that one out. He's playing guitar on it. As far as the rest of the instrumentation, my friend Edit and I finished it up. I did intros and outros, which I kind of did on a lot of the record, and my drums kind of carry the whole thing out."
