"It's basically about things in my life that keep going on. When am I finally getting a break? I've paid my dues and I've done my time. All the s--t going on in my life, and when is something good going to happen. That's basically just the song.""

"It's the first track we finished off for our new record and people from Paramount came over and said - hey, man we love that track. We want to put it in our new movie and everything happened at the right time, so, we were glad to give it to m. It helps us, it helps them. The track is extra fast, so were excited about doin' this."
