The veteran Brooklyn rapper and Lo-Life founder — who is a huge fan of Public Enemy — explained the song’s inspiration to Mass Appeal:
I’m a PE fan forever, you know what I mean? I’m inspired. They got some of the greatest production sounds ever. Original—you know? They shit was so creative. So, I had got that track from Domingo. And you know one day me and Fuol was sitting there just going through tracks and we was like “Yo, we should do a song like we Public Enemy.” Cause people always sort of compared us to them before. You know, performances and everything. Cause of the contrast of, you know, his character and mine. But yo, we shot the video for that. That shit bananas.
