Pressure is about understanding ones value and coming to terms with the idea that everyone is not your friend.


Left my jeans up in the floor
Let's sk8
Pulled up in the limousine young we nice
I ain't even shamed of being late
I guess this is what it all means

Pictures on the carpet
IG nigga shit popping
Poparazzi clicks
Chicks thicker than the plot is
Peerot, with the pernaud this sterno
Leapt upon the scene lunch at tavern on the green my my
Order something butter fried cuz
Why not
Yet and still this bill getting signed

this where the wild go free
The rooms is small and
The silence Speaks
Where the choices made
Means we might not eat
Where You swear that you need to be
Uh huh
But you gets no peace
Cuz everybody wants a piece
& it Make you wanna run and
hide under the hotel sheets

I know it hard but baby please keep your stride just know that you'll be all right
Don't let your mind be the asking price
It's never been for sale.

Say oh yeah this pressure make diamonds
Say hey cause you are what the prize is

Clock struck 12 when I lost my faith
Can't sleep cause the thought of
Losing it all got my mind
feeling like it's all at stake
Especially when u hungry

Anxiety's a friend
just outchea trying to make amends
Capping when I said I had some
my emotions even
Left me in the end
A Dollar for some solace
2 Stacks for somebody being honest
Cuz Yeses ain't a Blessing
When the Skeletons
shimmy out your closet
Better make it quick
They want your soul is that deposit

Youngin keep ya head up
I feel it when you sayin that you fed up
Cause you traded all your dreams
Wants and your needs
Time and some peace for the setup
Couple stacks and some dress up
Now you in it and the pressure never let up
Be careful what you ask for cause you may get it
Blessing and the lessons just the same and they committed
Seconds hours at your limit
& the Stress got your hair falling out upon the pillow
friends turn to foes
Enemies ops snitches
by the droves
Plotting on they stocks and
your pockets
Paranoid or maybe having suicidal thoughts but breath for a second
Really understand your options
that you precious
And you can keep you head above the water if you count all your blessingS
