The song peaked at #31 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, becoming their signature song.

Sample Credits[edit]

The song contains samples from the theme to the Halloween film.

Music video[edit]

The music video was shot in New Orleans, Louisiana. The video starts off with Master P, Silkk The Shocker, and C-Murder in a military base in the future. Also in the video, there are numerous occasions when female dancers are dancing to a white background. Although there appear to be a large number of dancers, there are actually only two thanks to the use of computer graphics. Most of the TRU members are wearing Ricky Williams jerseys, since he was still playing for the New Orleans Saints in 1999 when the video was filmed.
