Michael Phelps finally answered the question everyone has been pondering for weeks.

Remember when Phelps sent the Internet into a frenzy during the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro by unleashing the most intense death stare ever before one of his races?

Well, the U.S. Olympic swimmer revealed Sunday night during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards that he was listening to Future’s “Stick Talk” when he made the “Phelps Face” that soon became a meme sensation.

Do you believe him? Or was Phelps simply trying to hype up Future’s appearance at the VMAs?

Either way, we’ll always have the “Phelps Face,” which is all anyone can really ask for.
