Songfacts®:

  • This song is an ode to the African Americans that have lost their lives to the police. It features vocals from Ty Dolla $ign's brother, Gabriel "TC" Griffin, a member of the Schoolyard Crips, who is serving a life sentence for a crime Ty believes he did not commit.

    "Speaking about injustice - how we can be thrown away and forgotten about if we don't stand up for this s--t... it's here at home for me," Ty explained to i-D about the song. "There's been no justice for these situations, no convictions. But I believe by talking about it - by spreading these issues through music to my fans - we can put a stop to it. We see what's going on and I believe in us."
