This song features verses by Travis Scott, Young Thug and Quavo from the hip-hop trio Migos. They all detail the frustration of their girl refusing to pick up the phone when they call, as she doesn't need them. This was Scott's fifth collaboration with Young Thug, following Days Before Rodeo's "Skyfall" and "Mamacita," Rodeo's "Maria I'm Drunk" and the non-album cut "Nothing But Net." The song served as the second single from Travis Scott's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight album. It was also included as a bonus track on Young Thug's mixtape Jeffery. The album title is taken from one of Quavo's rhymes in his verse

I hate when we fight She in love with the pipe I draped her up in ice, I pour my four on ice Birds in the trap sing Brian McKnight Percocet and Codeine please don't take my life

Scott recalled to Billboard magazine: "Young Quavius was rapping, bouncing off ideas, and I was letting him know the story and the vibe of my album so when he was doing his verse, dude just says 'Birds in the trap sing Brian McKnight.' I ran in the booth and I was like, 'Bro, this is it!'" [Laughs] The record title stemmed from Scott's frustration at the time taken for his various creative endeavours to see the light of day: He said:

"It took five months for my action figure to come out," he said. "It took eight months for the Hype Williams video to come out. I just felt like I was confined in a box. I couldn't do s--t I wanted to do to help forward pop culture and music. It's like motherf--kers still tryna hold me back so that was the whole gist of it. 'In the trap' has nothing to do with coke or anything. It's literally a trap."

Music video

The music video premiered on August 12, 2016 with the music video for "90210" at the ".wav party" in Los Angeles, California, with both of them later released on Travis Scott's Vevo account on YouTube.

Lyrics

Yaaah, oh yaaah
Ooooh, Thugger
Yeah, Travis Scott
Thugger, Thugger baby
Yaah

I pour a four up
I call your hoe up
Just to fuck her and show her
I just went, got my dough up
Pullin' off and I'm gone!
Then I go and pour four up
Then I roll up that roll up
Then I'm callin' your hoe up
(Like Brrrrr)

Pick up the phone, baby (Like brrrrr)
I know you're home, baby (It's lit!)
I'm in the zone, baby (Straight up!)
I just poured up a four baby (Yeah, yeah)

Never will I cheat on you
Never will I commit treason
Blowin' a bag on you
Do all of that for no reason
I'mma pull up and murk too
Hittin' the block and I'm bleedin'
Throwing that Rollie on you
I like the way it be freezin' (Brrrrr)

Pick up the phone, baby (Like brrrrr)
I know you're home, baby (It's lit!)
I'm in the zone, baby (Straight up!)
I just poured up a four baby (Yeah, yeah)

Pour up a four of that Actavis
Lean like my mothafuckin' granny did
Super Bowl ring with big body Benz
I stack it up now I'm just better livin'
Got screws in my mouth, I'm just preppin' it
I'm fucking this cash up, I'm not celibate
I'm packin' it up like a reverend
I need all this cash, I got hella kids
I'mma play dumb and get left in the middle
Back the fuck up, you too little
Hit 'em with three like I'm Miller
I don't talk to no man in the middle
I don't talk to no man, I'm just kiddin'
But I did pay my sister's tuition
I feel lucky, I should play the lottery
Walkin' off with it like Sonny Liston
Mama told me I'm her brightest star
Mama told me don't hate on the law
Because everybody got a job
Because everybody won't be a star (Real shit, real shit)
Please believe every motherfucker around here wan' be a part
She gon' do anything in her power to be with ya' boy (Brrrrr)

Pick up the phone, baby (Like brrrrr)
I know you're home, baby (It's lit!)
I'm in the zone, baby (Straight up!)
I just poured up a four, baby (Yeah, yeah)

Never will l cheat on you
Never will I commit treason
Blowin' a bag on you
Do all of that for no reason
I'mma pull up and murk too
Hittin' the block and I'm bleedin'
Throwin' that Rollie on you
I like the way you be freezin'

Pick up the phone
Macaulay Culkin' baby, Home Alone
I thought I was right
Then I had to man up, I was wrong
I hate when we fight
She in love with the pipe
I draped her up in ice, I pour my four on ice
Birds in the trap sing Brian McKnight
Percocet and Codeine please don't take my life
She had a dream with Celine
So I bought it twice
Young nigga make it right back tonight
Girl you're so cute and your ass is nice
Drinkin' on four and I'm shootin' dice
Wrist polar bear, Klondike
And I'm loving all races, hell nah don't discriminize
Drinkin' on clean, sanitize
Ostritch seats with the frog eyes
If I ever call your phone baby
Best believe it's only one time (Brrrrrr)

Pick up the phone, baby (Like brrrrr)
I know you're home, baby (It's lit!)
I'm in the zone, baby (Straight up!)
I just poured up a four baby (Yeah, yeah)

Never will l cheat on you
Never will I commit treason
Blowin' a bag on you
Do all of that for no reason
I'mma pull up and murk too
Hittin' the block and I'm bleedin'
Throwin' that Rollie on you
I like the way you be freezin'
