The song is set to a dark, booming beat and explores the contrasts between Ross' and Martin's upbringings. Ross also reflects on his early criminal life and how he could've met the same fate as Martin. As the track fades out, Ross samples the testimony of Rachel Jeantel, Martin's friend. Self Made Vol. 3, a collaborative album from Ross' Maybach Music Group, is set for release on September 17th.
