The "G6" in the song "Booty Bounce", which was sampled in "Like a G6", was put into the lyrics after the producers of the song were trying to look for a rhyme for the line "Sippin' sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6", which is a reference to the 2000 song "Sippin' on Some Syrup" by American rap group Three 6 Mafia. The producers decided to choose "G6", which is meant to be a reference to the private airplane model Gulfstream IV, which is referred to as a "G4". According to Far East Movement member Kev Nish, they decided that a G6 was "flyer than a G4".
