Background[edit]

The track samples "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. In 50 Cent's verse, he uses the lines "Success is my drug of choice, I'm high off life / Another move, another mill, lets get right, aight" from the original version of his song "Outta Control", though the lines are the other way round.

Music video[edit]

The music video starts with 3 girls winning an invitation to the G-Unit mansion after purchasing the CD single. At their home, they listen to Funkmaster Flex on the radio and leave afterwards for 50's mansion. Cameo appearances are made by G-Unit artists Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo & Spider Loc.
