Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Travis Scott teaming up with Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West. Travis Scott and Uzi Vert boast about their Rolexes watches and their riches during the hook.

    Look at your Rollie, look at my Rollie,
    That's a small face, this a big face


    There's a great deal of watch bragging going on throughout the track.
  • Kanye West reflects during the third verse on his 2017 battle with opioid addiction.

    Wanna know how pain feels? I got off my main pills
    Bet my wifey stay close, she know I'm on my Bezos
    Opioid addiction, pharmacy's the real trap
    Sometimes I feel trapped, Jordan with no Phil Jack


    West developed an addiction to opioids after getting a painkiller prescription following a liposuction procedure.
  • Kylie Jenner adds her own bar at the end:

    We got bust down Rollies, bust down Rollies
    And I told him I wanted to have a bust down baby


    This is likely a reference to her baby with Travis, Stormi Webster, who was born on February 1, 2018.
