“This song is all about self-empowerment. It's about following your gut and being who you know you truly are, without being influenced by all of the bullshit around you. It’s about not succumbing to negative energy from negative people,” singer Joe Cotela says.

“There are people that do nothing with their lives, but talk shit about someone who is on their grind. You can hate my hustle all day—but you will not stop it. This isn't a song for boneheads that think it's cool to be an asshole. It's about doing something positive for yourself and going hard in your life in the face of adversity. I firmly believe that the power of the mind is infinite and with the right focus and determination, anything and everything is within your reach.”
