Rob $tone is a San Diego rapper and RCA Records signee. This track was inspired by a failed robbery attempt back in 2014 when Rob $tone and a friend found themselves in the back of a police cruiser. "They thought we was 'bout to rob this house," disclosed $tone to HipHopDX. "We was going to, but it was a different house. I didn't learn right away. It definitely woke me up like yo, nigga, I need to chill."

Soon afterwards, one of $tone's closest homies, J.Davi$, played him a beat produced by Purpdogg, which sampled an eerie melodic whistle by Bernard Herrmann. First used as the theme song for the 1968 British psychological thriller Twisted Nerve, you may recognize it from a famous scene in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 martial arts epic Kill Bill Volume 1 where an assassin whistles the tune on her way to kill Uma Thurman's character. Rob $tone, J Davi$ and Spooks each laid down a verse. $tone explained in a Genius attribution: "This song came from the relief of being let go from the police. We had a little altercation with the police and we were let go. I was frustrated because I knew we weren't doing anything. They were just wasting my time.

Right after we were let go we went to Spooks' house and J. Davis put on the beat and we started writing to it." $ttone also croons the hook. He explained:

"My verse and the hook were all one verse originally, but after we recorded all of our parts, Spooks, Davis and our engineer convinced me to add the second part of my verse back to the song and to make it the hook.

Girls try come around because they're pretty and try to smoke up all the weed. Weed costs money, at least bring the Dutches or Backwoods. Bring something. There ain't no exceptions to this."

Lyrics

Rob $tone two damn phones
Babylons can't crack the code
Used to sip out styrofoam
But figured I should stick to dro (weed)
Backwoods overload don't like to smoke them swishers hoe
If you hit my liqour store
It fifty cents for single puffs

Said she wanna roll with me and smoke up all my weed
I said baby just buy that shit
'Cause you can't smoke for free
I got some loud but no money babe buy me a Fiji
She said you need a job, bitch fuck a job I still get trees

Two cell phones, Mr. Motha fuck a thot
Mr. I be on that block
Twelve o seven fuck a op
They hear my name they see my squad
Rolling dope up on the spot
I'm with your bitch she on my jock
Ain't got no time to love a thot

Got niggas mad my flow so hot
Got niggas mad my squad won't stop
We in the game won't take no loss
Im sippin water out the Voss
Got lean all in my fuckin' sprite
Turnin' up on fuckin' sight
Mr. Kenny Powers 'bout to
Take your girlfriend home tonight, bitch

And I'm smokin' on the widow when you see it out the window
Got a dusty old tee, look up on me leave it simple
Growin' up I was always in the middle
So I gotta hold it down for my older and my little
And my brothas beside me so fuck it we mobbing please
Don't be scrammin' on finding me but I be an OG
If a 'lil fuck boy lame ass wanna creep,
I live by the limit 'cause a fuckah chose me

Said she wanna roll with me and smoke up all my weed
I said baby just buy that shit
'Cause you can't smoke for free
I got some loud but no money babe buy me a Fiji
She said you need a job, bitch fuck a job I still get trees
