Composition

According to Mannie Fresh:

"I did “Top Back” on some old equipment: a EPS and an SP-1200. It was originally a Juvenile record—I still have it saved as “Juvenile.”

I had Tip do the hook. But Juve didn’t like the record. He was like, “It’s too loud.” I told him this is gonna be a big record. Tip was like, “Can I have it?” It was like he was counting on Juve not to like the record.

He did all three verses, full-on. He already knew what he was gonna do, he had it memorized. I was like, “This is one of your singles, bro.” He gave me a modest, “We’ll see.” Juve was like, “Man, I should’ve set up on this one.”

Remix

The remix features fellow American rappers Young Jeezy, Young Dro, Big Kuntry King and B.G.. T.I. performed the remix at the BET Hip Hop Awards on November 15, 2006.

The song was also remixed in 2007, by American rapper Lil Wayne, freestyling over the song's beat for his mixtape Da Drought 3 . The freestyle was titled "Seat Down Low".
