Garbage

Album: Single Release Only (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This cut about a drug dealer-turned-killer is Tyler's attempt to make a song reminiscent of rap acts Fam-Lay and Clipse, both of whom were part of The Neptunes' Star Trak imprint in the first half of the 2000s.
  • The song is part of the expansive soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V. Like previous editions of the video game, the fifth edition came via a series of imagined radio stations featured within, each with a unique curator.
