The song has an upbeat drum pattern along with many synth effects. The vocal panning stands out on this track, and it is clear that Rocky is taking more creative liberties when it comes to his sound. It is also evident that he put much focus into his ad-libs as they add a ton of body to the track. There is a beat switch and flow change towards the end of the song which creates an interesting quality to the track. Rocky's sound grants him a 10/10 on the Intersect Rating Scale.
This track is not too lyrically dense which is typical for Rocky. He is simply expressing how his haters do not interrupt his lavish lifestyle and he gets this message across clearly. One interesting line in this track is a reference to an old 2 Pac video where he says, “Riverside Radames,.380 by the leg, Got me feelin’ like Pac and shit”. He pays homage to the legendary rapper through this rhyme. These lyrics get Rocky a 5/10 on the Intersect Rating Scale.
