Grimes mentioned that the track "is about having to defeat azealia banks when she tried to destroy my life," which was referenced by the news outlet to their feud since 2018.

"Grimes def has some psychosexual obsession with me. I think it's bitterness cuz she doesn't have the musical capacity i have. everything she does is out of pretentiousness and it comes out like that ... while everything i do is out of natural swag & geniusness lmaoo.."
The rapper also said, "starting to notice all the weird undercover millennial racists hide out on discord."
On Sunday, Banks also posted and soon deleted a Story that said, "really thought I did you a favor by not responding to that subpoena....., i just may happen to have all those extra texts/screenshots/evidence Laying around somewhere.."
The Grimes vs. Azealia Banks Debacle
During the time where their beef started, Grimes and Azealia were reportedly working on a song when Azealia posted on social media that she was at Grimes' boyfriend's house. In the said post, she said, "Elon Musk's house alone for days waiting for Grimes."
Back in 2018, the rapper allegedly claimed that Musk was introduced to weed through Grimes and tweeted about stocks for his company, Tesla, while on acid.
A group of Tesla investors sued Tesla and Musk over the tweet and proposed to subpoena Banks.
