“Gotta do what I gotta do” is a lyric from the song which the instrumental is taken. Swangin' and Bangin' by ESG is often regarded as a Screw-ston Anthem, as it embodies the Houston, TX lifestyle.

The original instrumental can be heard on E.S.G.’s album Ocean’s of Funk, whereas another version of the song (released in ‘95: different beat) became more popular. Drake isn’t exactly swangin’ (changing lanes/switching his style up) with this track but he is certainly bangin' with this screwed up beat, which is absolutely a tip of the hat to some Houston old heads. Shortly after this song’s release on Take Care, E.S.G. recorded a freestyle over the throwback instrumental
