The first single of Radioactive was supposed to be "Gangsta of Love" which featured an outro speech by Cyhi Da Prynce and production from Jim Jonsin, but was not officially released by Yelawolf because it was leaked. On July 7, Yelawolf announced that the song would not make the final cut on the album.
The song was recorded at PatchWerk Recording Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, with Kawan "KP" Prather and Yelawolf's manager Jeremy "J Dot" Jones, production was handled by Orlando, Florida based production team Tha Hydrox, while the chorus features vocals by rapper Lil Jon.
The music video for the song was directed by Motion Family, filmed in Atlanta, Georgia at 1260 Custer Avenue during August 26. On September 20 it was released through VEVO. Fellow rappers Rittz, Shawty Fatt and Trouble make cameo appearances in the music video.
