Besides his collaborations with Blu, Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound and J-Live, Yamin’s work as one half of Atlanta rap duo Clan Destined garnered them a 5 out of 5 rating from Creative Loafing for their album Self Titled. AllHipHop named Yamin one of 2014’s top 50 artists, and Yamin’s self-titled solo debut album landed on Dart Adam’s Top 50 Albums of 2013 list. Illastrate has produced for Treach of Naughty By Nature, DoItAll from Lords of the Underground and Boog Brown.
“I’ve been targeted since I can remember,” Yamin says about the inspiration for the song. “Being asked by shop owners to produce receipts when leaving stores or having cops ask me what gang I’m in since seven years of age, all while having to watch my back in my own space around people who look like me.”
