“I’m just goin’ in like…using lyrical abilities, flows, energy,” he explained of the song in an interview with XXL. “Being aggressive, cocky. I start off like real calm and just talkin’ to ’em, really, over a beat.
Meek explained how the second half of the song highlights the duality between dreams and nightmares. “And the second part, when it get to the nightmare part, I just start screaming, going bananas, to the top of my lungs. Stating facts and getting real arrogant and real disrespectful, just showing them both sides. I could be a dream, I could be a nightmare.”
“I’m just telling you my story, and how I got here,” he added.
