Songfacts®:

  • This song features Tyler's Odd Future colleagues Domo Genius and Earl Sweatshirt. Earl missed Odd Future's initial success as his mom sent him away to a Samoan military academy because he kept getting into trouble. She blamed Tyler for her son's issues, a subject the Odd Future leader addresses on this song. "I don't understand why she doesn't like me and I just wanted to address that in that song because it was just eating me up that I never said anything," Tyler said of the track on MTV's RapFix Live. "I know she listened to her son's verse and I went before him so she for sure heard it."
