The high-octane track finds the formidable threesome of MCs doing the dash with hard-body flows over an intimidating loop highlighted by an ill guitar riff concocted by Danger. “Bellbottoms” by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is sampled on the track, which has additional production from El-P.
“That’s why I’m outta here, baby/Before these clowns put me down in the ground, baby/I’m running reds ’til I’m out of this town, baby/You want your money back? Chase me,” El-P raps on the chorus. You can smell the rubber burning through the speakers.
