Samples “Kiss of Life” by Sade and “Poetry” by Boogie Down Productions.

DOOM explains in XXL Magazine:

[This song was] a while ago, so I’m trying to remember what inspired it. It’s really just normally what I’d be talking about. I kinda do bragging rap. I do the kind of hip-hop where the MC is more pointing out things and accentuating certain things that have been forgotten at some stage. So I’m really just explaining hip-hop rules. Rules about rhyming. Typical shit that you would normally do or don’t do. That’s basically it. Hold on a second, I’m crossing the street right now.

The beat was later released in his Special Herbs beat tapes. The beat is titled “Saffron” and it is on Special Herbs Vol. 2
