Luda spoke with ESPN's Michael Smith and Jemele Hill about how Marshawn Lynch, aka Beast Mode, inspired the track. He also spoke about working with him on the video and what he said about that final possession of Super Bowl XLIX that ended in a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots. As you can see in the video, the intro is a reference to how Lynch handles the media during the NFL's mandatory press sessions.

The song itself has some classic lines like "Flow tighter than four fat bitches sittin' in a Civic" and "I leave rappers confused like barber." The bass heavy beat was produced by 1500 Or Nothin and Mike & Keys.

It's the fifth single on Ludaversal, Ludacris' 2015 album now available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3).
