How this song came about is best explained in the artist’s own words:
This record was inspired by a hook that John had done a couple years ago but didn’t use. He was generous enough to let me take a swipe at it around a time in my life where a couple of very relevant situations had presented themselves.
Phatboiz and I recorded the original version for my last mixtape, The Investment but we never pushed it because we felt it had better sonic potential. Once we finally revisited it in LA last month, we felt we did the story and the song justice. What better time to release it than now?
