  • Tyga was born Michael Stevenson in Compton, California of Jamaican and Vietnamese descent, and grew up in Gardena, California. He is the cousin of Travis McCoy, the lead vocalist of the group Gym Class Heroes, who also records solo under the name of Travie McCoy.
  • This features Pharrell Williams on the chorus, who also produced the track. "I'm on It," the first release from Careless World, was also produced by Williams.

"We just had a conversation about music and fashion, and he made the beats right there."
