This song was mainly inspired by two reggae songs: “Sweetie, Come Brush Me” by John Holt (parts of this song are even sampled within the song) and “Tenement Yard” by Jacob Miller (parts of the Chorus are lyrics directly from this song). Also, Jemere’s father is “Gramps” Morgan from legendary reggae group, Morgan Heritage.
