“It’s speaking to woman, but from a man’s perspective. People who find themselves in a situation where the woman might say she wants to part ways with the man, but the man [is] like, ‘Let’s be sensible about this. You gonna leave all this? And go where?’ That’s what he is sayin’, the gentleman is sayin’. I know there’s a lot of guys out there who find themselves in positions on all levels of life, not just as a rich man, but you have people who treat a woman the way she wants to be treated,” he continued. “There aren’t a lot of men out there who can offer that same kind of security, affection and protection; that will be kind of the song.”

T.I. explains the subject matter of his new single to XXL in an interview last week.
