[Verse 1]
God first, hard work, that's the key to success
If you alive and free, to me you're blessed
No drama no stress only way you around me
I feel like I'm too cool to end up back in that county
Found my way out the game, now my family straight
Cause they know they ain't never seeing me in that place
Can't wait til' [?] get home, we gon' still stunt hard
Can't wait til' King Dre get free, we gon' look like the mobb
[?] just touched down, the feds done took out my friends
[?] Wasn't tryna hurt nobody was tryna make a few ends
There came our end, I don't believe in the game
If the police don't get to somebody speaking your name
Tryna be home with the fam', see my kids grow up
I'm too old for new cases to start showing up
If you could slang caine' you can slang anything
And since you can be who you wanna be, imma' be a king
No more chasing fiends, I'm chasing my dreams
Stop thinking small, I want everything
Still stuntin' new Bent with the screens
Why not though? I'm a king, I'm a king

[Chorus]
No more chasing fiends, I'm chasing my dreams
Stop thinking small, I want everything
Still stuntin' new Bent with the screens
Why not though? I'm a king, I'm a king
No more penny hustling, in and out of jail
No more living like a slave in the cell
I'm a hustler there's plenty ways to make this mil'
And imma' figure it out, and ain't gon' fail, I'm a king

[Verse 2]
Fuck what anybody say about me
Imma make them eat their words, watch me
God got me, can't nobody stop me
You see me winnin', why not cop me?
I ain't perfect but I'm getting better
Everyday I wake up I keep getting better
Learning something new, getting more cheddar
I'm in that gym tryna' get it together
Making sure as I get older I get colder
And if you hating that, I ain't trying to know ya'
Cause kings only kick it with kings
And if you ain't thinking like that, you ain't on my team
Cause I'm a king

[Chorus]
No more chasing fiends, I'm chasing my dreams
Stop thinking small, I want everything
Still stuntin' new Bent with the screens
Why not though? I'm a king, I'm a king
No more penny hustling, in and out of jail
No more living like a slave in the cell
I'm a hustler there's plenty ways to make this mil'
And imma' figure it out, and ain't gon' fail, I'm a king

Came from the bottom to the top
Only difference with us, is you stopped
Ain't no shortcuts just hard work
And always make sure you keep God first (Amen)
Tougher your times, the bigger your blessings
Live right, when you make mistakes learn your lessons
Cause ain't nothing funny about being a dummy
Make sure you get your mind right if you want this money
It's hard to get this paper, even harder to keep it
You gotta educate yourself that's the real secret
And once you start living your dreams, why be anything else when you can be a king?
I'm a king

[Chorus]
No more chasing fiends, I'm chasing my dreams
Stop thinking small, I want everything
Still stuntin' new Bent with the screens
Why not though? I'm a king, I'm a king
No more penny hustling, in and out of jail
No more living like a slave in the cell
I'm a hustler there's plenty ways to make this mil'
And imma' figure it out, and ain't gon' fail, I'm a king

[Verse 1]
Damn it feel good to be a hustler
Everyday I stay shining on you suckas'
Addicted to chasing dreams, live like kings
I'm a boss you can tell by my pinky rings
Tell my old hoes I don't want em' back
I'm on some new shit they don't like that
Tell all my haters that they still loss
They still ain't shit, and I'm still a boss
Been that before Rick Ross
Been thuggin' before Thugga' Thugga' came out
No hate though, I hope we out stay rich
It's enough of everybody tryna' hit licks
It's enough of everybody tryna' get rich
So stay away from the snake shit
Keep it 1000 with the [?]
Just know you do dirt that you gon' get

[Hook]
It's enough of everybody tryna' get rich
What you gon' give out you gon' get
If ya'll don't know by now karma a bitch!
[?] how you get rich

[Verse 2]
Good business go a long way
You can use it whenever you have a bad day
If you good foot niggas like [?] okay
But if you a fuckboy move out the way
Same way in this world but they call it creative
It's easy to fuck up but so hard to gain it
Niggas ready to rob instead of grinding
Catching bullets in they head doing timing
Take your time young'un fore' [?]
Looking lost thinking it's cool to be a crook
Til' they ass on Ferguson and picking cotton
Make you a new slave until you turn rotten
It's enough of everybody tryna' get rich
So stay away from the snake shit
Keep it 1000 with the 1's [?]
Just know you do dirt that you gon' get

[Hook]
It's enough of everybody tryna' get rich
What you gon' give out you gon' get
If ya'll don't know by now karma a bitch!

[Verse 1]
I'm the realest nigga in it, everything authentic
You new to it, I'm true to it
What you doing, I did it
Still spitting everything how I get it
In real life I'm told to lead y'all midgets
Bet I had your bitch digits way before you hit it
She a TBT to me but you can have her mane, I'm finished
She put me in the Guinness, nigga's can't miss me
I ain't shit but I'm in your main bitch history, I bet she miss me
You niggas ain't real as me, trill as me
My wrist still a key and and I'm still a P
But I quit, I'm too real to deal with a dumb bitch and deal with so much dumb shit when I'm already rich, bitch

[Hook]
How real is that though?
I'm for real mane, no lie
I mean, if being a hustler in my blood
Why not take advantage of the best one?

[Verse 2]
Never talk like I'm a killer, I say I'm a dealer
Never talk about what I don't got, I keep it trilla than a lot of these niggas
Ain't lying to these niggas, I try to motivate and stop the hate dividing these niggas
But a lot of these goons got girl ways
On the sideline hating on the ones that's getting paid
Been keeping it trill since I had to [?]
They surprised when they see like "he still paid"?
I tell em' hustlers make money, and bosses gon' boss
I been up for a minute and I'm still standing tall
I tell em' hustlers make money, and bosses gon' boss
I been up for a minute and I'm still standing tall

[Outro]
The realest in the game
I'm talking about everything authentic mane
Can't miss me
Yeah, I know you like my style though
I know you like my style B
I see you jocking this swag
It's okay though (haha)

Peaceful

[Intro]
Everyone deserves a place that's
Peaceful

[Hook:]
Peaceful
I'm all by myself and it's so peaceful
Peaceful [X2]

[Verse 1: Slim Thug]
At the crib with my kids and my momma
Far away from the stress and the drama
Came up in the game, did it myself
Young hustler big dreams out here chasing wealth
Stressful world make you want to stay in the crib
I'm trying to live how a boss lives
Tired of fighting cases over dumb shit (fuck that)
I'm trying to run shit
This world is changing, way too many snakes
Every time I turn my head so many fakes
So I choose to be one deep
'Cause that's how you get the best sleep

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Slim Thug]
All I need is a lot of weed
Smoking Kush til I can't breathe
Being a hustler's just in my genes
It's a must, I have the finer things
So I stay up on my grizzy (on my grizzy)
Hustling every day staying busy
Tired of taking losses gettin' put in crosses
I'd rather be around a bunch of bosses
No more taking L's for nobody (for nobody)
'Cause, shit, I'm trying to be somebody
They like "damn Thugga, you done changed"
I tell them, "hell yeah I'm getting better mane"

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Slim Thug]
Escape the world leave the drama outside
My home, my place of peace please let me hide
I turned off my phone like "leave me alone"
Let me lay back, relax, smoke back to back til I'm gone
Work so hard barely enjoy the fruits of my labor
Barely get to enjoy the gifts, I'm getting this paper
Peace of mind is priceless, when I end your lifeless
It's the only way to way to live life to it's finest
Sitting back in that throne like "Thugga you're on
Came up from the bottom now Thugga you've grown"
Still strong in the game getting money, mane
Stay real the whole way so now-a-days it's

[Hook]

[Outro]
They say it's lonely at the top they say
I ain't mad

[Intro: Joel Osteen]
I wanna talk to you today about the right people
Who you spend your time with will have a great impact on what kind of life you live
There are people God has already ordained to come across our path to helps fulfill our destiny
People that inspire us, challenge us, make us better
The right people have already been lined up
But here's the key: If you're spending time with the wrong people, you'll never meet the right ones
If you're hanging around people that are not going any place, people that are dragging you down, cause you to compromise, draining your energy, then you're going to get stuck
You can't hang out with chickens and expect to soar with eagles
You're going to become like the people you continually associate with
You wanna know what you're gonna be like in 5 years? Look at your friends
If your friends are going places, have a spirit of excellence, kind, generous, courteous, then those qualities are going to rub off on you

[Verse 1: Slim Thug]
Gotta get these blessings
So tired of stressing
Learning new lessons
Planning questions
It's time for testing
Never ever resting
I'mma stay grinding
So I stay shining like a diamond
I'mma stay climbing to the next level
And do time and
Trying to line up with them bosses
Trying to soar high with them eagles
Can't chill with none of you chickens
I'm tray get rich with my people
Too high to see you haters
Too blessed to play y'all mind
I ain't got nothing to be mad at
I'm drop head top down
Thank you, God, all the time for helping me live my dreams
And for exposing all of those who wasn't right for my team
I'mma keep receiving this games
If it's for the better, I'll change
Only live once, better do it right
I'm trying to leave a legacy, man

[Interlude 1: Joel Osteen]
Complainers find other complainers
That's the saying - birds of a feather flock together
My challenge is simple, make sure you're flocking to the right group
Victorious people associate with other victorious people
Winners hang out with winners
Happy people around other happy people
Eagles soar with other eagles
We don't like change
We want it to be just like it was when we were hanging out, growing up together
But it's a new day
You have children, you have parents to take care of
You have more responsibility

[Verse 2: Slim Thug]
It's a new day
I got kids to feed
Plus, I got needs, understand that, please
Before you try to blame me
By being greedy, I'm just trying to be all I can be
You should've stayed down instead of knocking game
Now you're on the sideline watching me
Feeling like I'm where you're supposed to be
Man, cause you ain't see what I see
I put God first and went and got it
See, I came in the game focused
You was playing games in the projects
Got tired of being at the bottom
Trying to take my family to the top
Only wanna work with them winners
And keep raising up my stock
You still posted on the same block
Trying to move work out the same spot
Treating jail like it's in and out
And every time you get out, you got your hand out
I don't know what your new plan, but
But it ain't working if you're still hurting
No more excuses, no more complaining
Just praying hard with hard working

[Interlude 2: Joel Osteen]
But just because somebody is related to you, doesn't mean they're connected to you
They may have your blood, but they don't have your spirit
They may not have heard the call God put on your life
This doesn't make them a bad person
It just means God has a different assignment for them
Maybe they're at a different level in their growth, but they're not right for you in this season
This is one of the hardest things we have to deal with
Letting go of people that are not supposed to be in our lives

[Verse 3: Slim Thug]
Can't let you slow me down
Can't let you slow me down
Can't let you hold me down
Can't let you hold me down
If you ain't trying to get better
Better move around
If you ain't helping, you hurting
I'm trying to chase that crown
I pray for success
I pray you're blessed
I pray for your best
But all the stress that you brought in my life
I lost all respect
We family, so it's all good
I ain't tripping, I'll still speak
But the trust has been broken
I [?] working with me
Being by myself, I'm at peace
I'm too old to be out on these streets
I gotta take care of my kids
I ain't got time to have beef
I just got time to do me
And see what's next out there for me to see
Ain't trying to block my blessings
So I listen to God when he speaks

[Interlude 3: Joel Osteen]
Bottom line, don't hold on to what God is asking you to walk away from
Another thought, you shouldn't spend a lot of time with people that are always negative, people that are constantly discouraged, you gotta keep them cheered up, keep them fixed
Now, I'm all for helping people, I'm all for being a blessing
Sometimes we have to love people back into wholeness
But if you're always giving and never receiving, that's an unhealthy relationship
You need to gradually make a change
