Background

The original version had a longer second verse: after Juiceman's lines follow the lines by Jusmula (beginning with "It's real funny when a nigga play a C.L.,/ O.S.E., I be trippin' like G.L." and so on). It also contained the word "bastards" in Jada's line "Couple of flips and then stash it, bastards", which got blocked out in the final version, so it would be totally without profanities.

Music video

A music video was directed by Taj and shot on May 13, 2009.[2] There are cameo appearances from Ja Rule, Clipse, Clyde Carson, DJ Webstar, Grafh, and Styles P.[3] There are also various Ruff Ryders Lifestyles members with their motorbikes featured in the video.[4] The music video was released as the New Joint of the Day on 106 & Park on June 10, 2009.

Remix

On June 9 DMX's verse from the remix leaked onto the internet.[5] The whole remix was released on June 10. It features his fellow D-Block members Sheek Louch and Styles P along with Eve, Drag-On, DMX and Swizz Beatz.[6] This is known as the Ruff Ryders remix, sparking a long-awaited unification of the Ruff Ryder Entertainment. The single's instrumental was used for a Powerade commercial, and for the Wake Up Calls on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
