"Batter Up" is included as a bonus track on the Free City album and remixed on Da Derrty Versions. It was also the last single to be released from that album. The song's hook and chorus allude to the theme song of the television sitcom, The Jeffersons. The show's star, Sherman Hemsley, appears in the music video for "Batter Up", initially as a sports announcer and later dancing with members of St. Lunatics. It is the last single from Nelly's first studio album, and was released on the same day as the September 11 attacks. In the beginning of the music video to Ride Wit Me, Nelly is shown to be listening to Batter Up.
