The track, which is produced by Mike WiLL Made-It, was co-wrote by Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.
After becoming aware of Lee’s involvement with the single, radio personality Ebro Darden of Hot 97 took to Twitter to offer his two cents.
“They didn’t write that shit,” Ebro said at the time, alleging that the duo use ghostwriters. “Any of it. Maybe some of it. Mike WiLL-Made It—you know that his name is Mike WiLL-Made It? He made that album. They’re Kriss Kross. It was a fabricated thing that we all liked.”
After passing a somewhat subliminal comment regarding the topic via Twitter, a back and forth broke out between Ebro and Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jimmy. The latter went on to say that the Hot 97 anchor “is not relevant” and that he needs to motivate himself to some money.
A short while later, Mike WiLL Made-It — who’s listed as an executive producer on Rae Sremmurd’s debut album — weighed in, calling Ebro “lame as hell.”
