  • Webbie spoke to hhnlive.com about the inspiration behind "Independent": "I was thinking more about girls like my sisters, aunties, and my grandmother. It's for all the independent women, everyone of em. I'm not trying to me disrespectful or anything like that. There ain't no 'Gimme That Pussy' type s--t on there." The Baton Rouge-based rapper went on to say the true inspiration came from someone very close to him: "When I look at my sister man, she's really independent. She's got a couple kids and she's taking care of them. She's got her own car and her own house and she works hard. And just with me, I've always been about making tracks for my girls, whether it be cursin' em out or talkin' nice to em."
