Speaking with Genius, C.N.O.T.E. said the vibe of the track was inspired by war. “I think somebody was talking about [North] Korea bombing America or some sh#t, so I was like, ‘what the f#ck do that sound like?’ … Some of my beats tell stories. This happens to be one of those the beats that tells stories.”

C.N.O.T.E went through the track’s entire storyline, breaking down each sound and the context behind it.
