Charted: 89

Songfacts®:

  • Tyler, the Creator made this track in January 2018 while he was "on some rap –s--t" before his joint tour with Vince Staples. Tyler considers this to be a throwaway song. He wrote on Twitter:

    "And like 4-5 days ago I was like yo man I should shoot something to this and just put it out for fun and move on with my life or it'll sit on my hard drive like a lot of other things."
  • The song title doesn't appear until the last line of the final verse.

    Wallace still trippin' on s--t that I bought
    But I really do not care the cost 'cause okra


    Okra is a flowering plant with edible fruit, which is cultivated in tropical, subtropical and warm temperate regions around the world. Tyler mentions it as a reference to his Nigerian heritage, where a well-known dish is okra soup and fufu.
