  • I gotta give thanks, you know?
    I never really met nobody who was truly successful that wasn't thankful (Straight up, woah)
    For the good and the bad (Go time)
    It made me who I am
    Straight up, look
    DJ Khaled

    When it get this dark, you gotta feel your way out
    They tried to bury me alive, I Kill Bill-ed my way out
    Letting go of grudges that I used to feel a way about
    'Cause some emotions are too taxing to keep paying out
    Life is what you make it, I know I'll make it for sure, then make it some more
    I know critics hate it galore, it doesn't phase me no more
    I know some peoples only taste of success is the bite that they take out of yours
    My GG told me God laugh at you when you make plans
    The type of wisdom that made us men
    Plus tryna thank everybody who helped us along the way
    Is like trying to name every single member of the Wu-Tang Clan
    Yeah, I might skip one or two
    But that doesn't mean they wasn't just as part of the plan
    Some love goes without saying
    Who would've thought that DJ that was on 6 to 10
    Right there on 99 Jamz, screamin', "We the best"
    Would've had all the execs eatin' right out of his hands?
    Showed us all the keys to success from doors being slammed
    Look, I gotta thank Khaled, who back in 2010
    Convinced Ye, Sean should drop my last shit
    It's a smash hit, add Chris to it and it's a classic
    That's that rare shit, yeah loyalty everlasting, look
    All I know, forever stuck to the code
    Only one I changed was 48221 to 90210
    Fast forward later, this nigga Khaled my neighbor
    The type of stories that you can't make up
    The universe doesn't just work it out, man, it works in our favor
    What's Heaven on earth, getting everything that you prayed for?
    Shit, believe it to achieve it or you never will
    On the phone with Colin Kaepernick
    He like, "They not gon' make it easy for us in this game and they never will"
    I'm like, "That's not just the NFL, bro, that's every field"
    Look, no restraints, bitch, only strength
    That's my wavelength, surprised I ain't go insane
    Heard more gunshots outside than the doorbell rang
    And swam with sharks that's too big to fill up tanks
    And I'm right here, right now, how could I not give thanks?
    Feel my pain, I paint these pics, I spill this paint
    I miss my dogs, I spill this drink
    I pray that all your growing pains turn gold champagne
    Plus I gotta thank my exes on some "thank u, next" shit
    And all the old times that gave me new perspectives
    Speaking of new, I'm about to ink a new deal, Don Life Records
    And put anyone on in the city who needs connections
    This that Fortune 500, my shit never plummet
    I just bought a mansion and moved in the dungeon, don't none of y'all want it
    So all y'all fuckboys that want us to fuck up
    Just know I make fire in the place and not one of 'em fumble
    My vision is tunnel, Sean Don

    And I just gotta give thanks
    'Cause it's that time
    You know what I'm talking about, that grind time
    You've been grinding your whole life
    It's that time where that preparation meets that opportunity
    And you gotta be ready
    And give thanks Writer/s: Kelly Price, Khaled Khaled, Nicholas Warwar, Rodney Jerkins, Sean Anderson
