The track was inspired by a line in the film Poetic Justice starring Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur. It was the first song written by Keith Boyce (AKA GunnE) and Scott Wilson in a collaboration that included about 15 songs, and was the genesis of Cruel World. GunnE was the original guitar player for Cruel World.
