"God's Lottery" is the seventh track on the mixtape Keep Going by Mike Posner. Like the previous track on the mixtape, "Prince Akeem", "God's Lottery" was written in collaboration with Mike Shinoda.

Background

Mike Posner had been releasing various singles to commemorate milestones in his 3000-mile walk across America[1] which began in New Jersey back in April. To commemorate his arrival in California, he released a surprise mixtape on October 9, 2019 consisting of songs composed during his excursion.[2] Posner set out on the journey to regain a sense of clarity after the passing of his father and his close friend Avicii. He became even more inspired after a rattlesnake bite threatened to derail his progress in August. It was so severe he had to be hospitalized before learning to walk again through physical therapy. Posner said that through it all, he refused to be a victim.[3][4] In the first track Posner mentions that he created Keep Going to remind himself who he is when he faces challenges and he said he hopes listeners get the same strength from listening to the album.[5] There are a few "Sage Wisdom" interludes that find the likes of Diddy & Steven Tyler leaving words of encouragement for him over voicemail, praising him for his walk across America.[2] Two tracks on the mixtape, "Prince Akeem" and "God's Lottery" were written in collaboration with Mike Shinoda. The duo was seen together in early March 2019.[6]
