Snoop Dogg originally heard the single "Drifter", produced by Atlanta-based producer Fatboi, and was prepared to purchase the song. Snoop Dogg's cousin - So So Def affiliate rapper-producer Daz Dillinger - began to facilitate mediations between the two artists. Dillinger, in a good connection with Shawty Redd, organized an arrangement in which Shawty agreed to send Dillinger the rights, but also offered to make an exclusive track for Snoop with a similar sound just like "Drifter". Daz also organized an audition meeting for the two while Snoop was touring Georgia. Shawty Redd was unable to attend the meeting, but later conversed about the beat with Snoop via telephone. He sent a demo instrumental to Los Angeles, and was ultimately surprised with the changes Snoop made to the track. Originally, Redd didn't intend to use the autotuned effect on the vocals. The tape was sent back, vocals included, and Shawty began to play it in his local club. The song was leaked in early October 2007. This song was released as downloadable content for the Rock Band series.
