Song information[edit]

The song opens up with Ronald Isley (Mr. Biggs) returning a call to his goddaughter Kelly who left him a message earlier that day at work. He asks her to tell him what happened. In tears, Kelly tells him that her best friend has been sleeping with her husband (portrayed by R. Kelly) behind her back after everything Kelly did to support her when she was down. Outraged to hear this, Biggs tells Kelly to call up her ex so he can talk to him. Reluctantly, Kelly dials his phone and the song ends with Biggs scolding her ex for what he did, and Kelly telling him that she wants nothing to do with him anymore.
