This is the first-ever collaboration between Drake and 21 Savage. They may have connected through Metro Boomin as the Atlanta rapper recorded a collaborative EP with the producer titled Savage Mode and Metro Boomin helmed the majority of the tracks on Drake and Future's shared mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive. The beat was supplied by Atlanta producer London On Da Track, whose other credits include Rich Gang's "Lifestyle" and T.I.'s "About The Money". Speaking with VladTV, London revealed the collaboration came together after the pair met up in his hometown.

"I met Drake in Atlanta at a bar or something... Me, Keyshia Cole, and Drake... Me and Drake was talking like 'we need 7 bangers in the club right now'... We went to the studio. He had to leave … So I sent him a whole bunch of beats, and he was like 'we about to make history. I just bodied a whole bunch of tracks,' and he let me hear it when he got back to Atlanta." London On Da started crafting the beat with an eerie guitar solo before adding some spacey organs. He told Genius how his instrumentation came together:

"I had the guitar come on first. Because I thought that was just one of the dopest parts of the beat. Then I had the spacey organs fade in with the guitar, so it sounded like… I just thought that was different. Then I stretched it. Brought it in with the ambient sound that I played around the guitar, but I took the guitar out. And I was like, 'Okay here go the turn up part.' This way it's going to catch everybody's attention.

Everybody's waiting on the build up. All my beats are build up. When you hear my music, everything is build up. It starts from something and then it goes to 'Oh yeah! This is it!'"

Lyrics

This is all God's doing man you can't plan it
But if the devil's in the details then I'm satanic
'Bout to take over your city and you can't stand it
My accountant say you sinking like the Titanic
David Blaine last summer man you had to vanish
I get the hits like somebody pitching underhanded
Got my Spanish ting convinced that I know Spanish
Really when she get to talking I don't understand it
You ain't own it right away, you had to wait on niggas
Man I'm only 29 have some patience with us
Plus I never met nobody from my label nigga
I just pop up with the music then they pay a nigga
Shit ain't been the same like before
I still love it but I used to love it more
Face time with my shawty on tour
And she texting purple hearts 'cause she know that we at war, yeah

Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Can't afford mistakes, not on this end
Make me call my bros for assistance
You gon make me call my bros for assistance
Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Put me in a fucked up position
You gon make me call my bros, for assistance
Make me call my bro

Baby I'm a savage I ain't romantic
When I come around these rappers niggas start to panic
And they pockets going under like the Titanic
Got some head last night and it was outstanding'
They was hatin' on me then and they hatin' now
She was playing with me then but she waitin' now
Used to sleep inside a den I got acres now
I was fighting niggas then but I'm spraying now (blasting)
I don't pay no mind to no sneak diss
I won't spend a dime on a freak bitch
Niggas takin' cheap shots on some cheap shit
They the type to stand in line for some free shit
Babygirl gon suck it 'till her jaws locked
She gon' make me put my bitch on call block
We the ones poppin', we the ones shoppin'
We the one droppin' niggas, we the ones
They the ones duckin' when them heaters come
You that nigga snitchin' on your people huh
21 savage aka the reaper huh
Pussy niggas gettin' shot for all that reachin' huh

Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Can't afford mistakes, not on this end
Make me call my bros for assistance
You gon make me call my bros for assistance
Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Put me in all fucked up position
Make me call my bros, for assistance
Make me call my bro

I don't need love I'm the G.O.A.T
I just hit the beat and float
And I'm selling out arenas, but you putting on a show
I been tryna change life around for everyone I know
'Cause if I don't share the wealth
Then how the fuck we supposed to grow
Mom's stressed theres a lot of things we need
Chain smoking in the house it's hard to breathe
I used to have to hit my T's with Febreeze
Jordan pull up in the TL now I'm cheese
I'mma turn this TSX to a Benz soon
I'mma see a lot of blessings for my friends soon
150 inch screen in my bedroom
6'1" man that nigga need some leg room
Shit ain't been the same like before
They ain't even wanna look up at the score
Face time with my shawty on tour
And she texting purple hearts 'cause she know that we at war

Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Can't afford mistakes, not on this end
Make me call my bros for assistance
You gon make me call my bros for assistance
Niggas keep reaching and dissin'
Put me in all fucked up position
Make me call my bros, for assistance
Make me call my bro
