The Gucci-inspired pattern covering the shoe is based off of the Gucci shirts worn on the cover. The green interior is based off of the money, the red outsole is based off the text, and the gold swoosh/lace lock are based off of the jewelry.
The sample for this atmospheric song comes from “Jigoku no Kawa Nagare” — a song from the Jigoku Shoujo ost. The main sample for the song can be found at the beginning of this song, and the vocal sample used can be found 13 seconds in.
Boi-1da mentioning that there are no samples is kind of misleading here — the beat did contain a sample of “Vibez”, a composition played by Frank Dukes, that will be a part of the upcoming 4th volume of his Kingsway Music Library
