I gotta give thanks, you know I never really met nobody who was truly successful That wasn't thankful, for the good and the bad It made me who I am, straight up
Look (DJ Khaled) When it get this dark, you gotta feel your way out They try to bury me alive, I Kill Bill my way out Lettin' go of grudges that I used to feel a way about 'Cause some emotions are too taxin' to keep payin' out Life is what you make it, I know I make it for sure Then make it some more, I know critics hated galore It doesn't phase me no more I know some people's 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 tryna name every single member of the Wu-Tang Clan Yeah I might skip one or two But that doesn't mean that they wasn't just as Part of the plan, some love goes without sayin' Who woulda thought that DJ that was on 6 to 10 Right there on 99 Jamz, screamin', "We The Best! " Woulda had all the execs eatin right outta his hands And showed us all the keys to success from doors bein' slammed
Look, I gotta thank Khaled Who back in 2010 Convinced Yay, 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 and 90210 Fast-forward later this nigga Khaled my neighbour The type of stories that you can't make up The universe doesn't just work it out man, it works in our favour What's heaven on Earth? Gettin' everything that you prayed for? Shit, believe it to achieve it or you never will On the phone with Colin Kaepernick, he like "They 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 wave length, surprised I ain't go insane Heard more gunshots outside than the doorbell ringin' 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 yo' growin' pains turn ghost champagne Plus I gotta thank my exes on some "thank u, next" shit And all the old times that gave me new perspectives Speakin' 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 a mansion, and moved in the dungeon Don't none of y'all want it So all y'all fuck boys that want us to fuck up Just know I made fire in a place that not one of them from But my vision is tunnel Sean Don
And I just gotta give thanks 'Cause it's that time You know what I'm talkin' 'bout That grind time You been grindin' yo' whole life It's that time where that preparation meets that opportunity And you gotta be ready And give thanks
