The track is a musical departure from the previous entries in the “Ill Mind of Hopsin” saga, as the previous tracks were considered to be conscious hip hop songs, whereas this strays from that concept, instead focusing in on becoming a diss track purely aimed at Damien Ritter. The song details the recent monetary disputes that had occurred during the latter stage of Hopsin’s time at Funk Volume, with Hopsin claiming when he created Funk Volume, he was manipulated by Ritter to make him own 50% of the record label. This, therefore, prevents Hopsin from obtaining previously unreleased material still owned by Funk Volume, following the rapper’s departure.
The song received a positive reviews from critics, with HipHopDX stating the song is “nothing short of jarring” and “the unpredictable mind of Hopsin has delivered exactly what we would expect in the latest saga of Funk Volume crumbling”.
The song became a commercial success, achieving over 1 million views on YouTube within a week of its release
