  • Lil Baby contributes some braggadocious rhymes about closing $100,000 deals on his iPhone and a VVS diamond that is drippin' over his T-shirt.
  • The energertic, horn-heavy beat was supplied by June James. The Texas producer's other credits include Travis Scott's "Yosemite" and YFN Lucci's "Everyday We Lit."
