"Let's Go" was the single that rocketed the albums success. "Sugar (Gimme Some)" contains an interpolation of "Sugar On My Tongue" written by David Byrne of Talking Heads and was produced by Mike Caren. "Down Wit Da South" contains an interpolation of Midnight Star's song "No Parking (On the Dance Floor)." The song "Sugar (Gimme Some)" was released as a single and reached number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has a remix with a verse from Lil' Kim. "Let's Go" was also released as a single and remains Trick Daddy's most successful single, reaching number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. The video for "Sugar" features Lil' Kim and Cee-Lo, but Ludacris and his verse from the song are absent. The song "Let's Go" was used in the trailers for Stomp the Yard. The album has been certified Gold by the RIAA. As of November 2006 the album has sold 910,000 copies in the United States.
