Background[edit]

Originally appeared on Young Buck's Mixtape, Case Dismissed!

XXL, as well as other media outlets, have mistakenly credited Lil' Jon as the producer of this song, most likely because he appears in the video and the beat sounds like a typical Lil' Jon beat. Also the beat is similar to a slower version of Lil' Jon's "Get Low."

The song was originally done by Kool G Rap on his second CD "Wanted Dead or Alive"

MTV/MTV2 has aired a Making the Video episode for this single.

The song is featured in the game soundtrack for the wrestling video game WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007, in conjunction to the Money in the Bank ladder match featured in the game.

The single version of the song features the famous "I'm rich bitch!" quote from Dave Chappelle in the intro. This is not heard on the album version.

In 2006 R&B singer Amerie recorded the 'answer back' version. This version was released via her mixtape "Because I Love It - Volume 1". The answer back was later merged with the original to create a remix.

It had been rumored that WWE would use the theme for their official WWE Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View in July 2010, but it has been confirmed that the theme used was "Money" by I Fight Dragons.
