Songfacts®:

  • On this closing track from Trill O.G., the third solo studio album by UGK member Bun B, the Texan rapper reflects on his life and career. He told MTV News that the song's title doesn't mean he's about to retire from the music game. "It was meant not just for the album, but really just looking back at life," Bun said. "Like, you never know how long you're gonna be here. I plan on being here for a long while, but I don't have a final say on that sh--. So with that being said, to sum up everything up to this point, we had some ups and some downs, we had some real rough times. But we're still here, and I don't think I would really change anything at this point, because it really has been a pleasure doing what I do and being out there with the people. I just wanna continue with it. I ain't done with it. But in case I don't get to say anything else beyond this point, I just wanna let the people know it's been a pleasure."
  • The song features the Canadian rapper and singer Drake.
