Be Thankful For What You Got

I'm not the BIGGEST Thanksgiving head. I am not into the whole folklore of the White Man and the Red Man sitting down to eat corn and shit. I don't think it went down that way. Being a Family Man, though, I do get sentimental, and I do appreciate certain things. I am thankful that my family is alive and well, and not ending up in a tragic accident like the one that happened around the corner from my house yesterday, or the murder that popped off near my in-laws last weekend. I am thankful that my Nets finally won last night. Among all, I'm thankful to still be enjoying this blog. Being a writer that blogs for not much seems like a dumb thing to do, but I am having a ball, and getting to converse with some down ass people. I am thankful for my peers in this lil' thing of ours.

In any case, all of that is not why I am posting right now. I wanted to throw a "thank"-y track up for the day, and it hit me: "Be Thankful For What You Got". Perfect vibe, perfect message, just right for me and mine. But you know we have to take it a step further... so here are the original, as well as 3 different versions of this beautiful cut
Enjoy your turkey day: grab a cold one and relax with those who mean the most to you.
