Songfacts®:

  • This was the first single by American rapper Trick Daddy from his sixth studio album Thug Matrimony: Married to the Streets. It featured Twista and Lil Jon and became Trick Daddy's most successful single to date, peaking at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
  • This song samples the beginning of Ozzy Osbourne's 1980 hit "Crazy Train" repeatedly throughout the song.
  • Jim Jonsin and Lil Jon were the knobmeisters for this joint. Florida native Jonsin has helmed several of the 21st century's biggest hip hop and R&B hits including "Whatever You Like" by T.I., "Lollipop" by Lil Wayne, and "Just a Dream" by Nelly. However in an interview with his local newspaper Broward Palm Beach New Times Jonsin explained this is his favorite of all the hit songs he's produced: "To flip an Ozzy [Osbourne] record, 'Crazy Train'... that was one of my favorite rock songs," he said. "I knew it would do well, although nobody around me thought it would."
