Thank God (Interlude)
by YG

Album: My Krazy Life (2014)
  • My Krazy Life tells the story of the hardships YG faced growing up in Compton, his gang affiliations and the time he spent locked up in jail. This song finds his mother being informed on the phone of her son's arrest. This track features Big TC and the rapper's Pu$haz Ink labelmate RJ, however YG himself never appears. "I couldn't call her, she didn't want to hear nothing I had to say," YG explained during a RapFix Live interview of his omission from the track. "So I had the homey do a verse talking to my mama, let her know what's going on. That's RJ, that's why I wasn't on the song."
  • Big TC is the younger brother of rapper/singer Ty Dolla $ign. He recorded his take while locked in prison on a murder charge. "The person you hear on the song first is Big TC, he's in the penitentiary facing life. So him and his homeys be recording songs on their phones and uploading it to YouTube," YG explained.

    "We was on YouTube one day and DJ Mustard was playing it for me and I was like, 'That's hard, make a beat to that.' So we got it off of YouTube, turned it to an MP3 file, he pulled it up and made a beat to it."
