Pressure
Black Man In America
[Intro]
We will be here forever
Do you understand?
Forever and ever
And ever and ever

[Verse 1]
Hey, this Black man made it in America
Basketball and rap attract kids to get the hell out the area
Nowadays n***as kill when you get ahead of 'em
So I backtrack and get 'em some act right
'Cause they confused the rap life for a trap life
Mentally I ain't wrapped tight
You f**k wit me the situation turn to Roy Jones' last fight
This Muddy music
That mean you get offended
These words like liquor when I'm bartendin' (Let's go n***a)
Mama taught me well, she hold a hammer for me
She pray for me when I get it, it's mandatory (Mandatory)
Call me Big Unc and I cosign ya
Bankrolls, rollin' blunts I'll be ya role model
Drug addicts go cold chicken
They veins pop out, They say, "Red, feed me what I ain't gettin'" (Heeeey!)
I can get in my car and get out and the same song is on when I get back in and get out (Uh ohhhh)
Check my archive
My stage show is like a bar fight
You want it? Have the right Sean Price (Heeeey!)
I'm a legend, don't call me old school
I'll move n***as like they buildin' in a Whole Foods (Yes sir)
And you gotta be ready for drama
Especially when Bloods and Crips is livin' by ya mama
I'm breathless

[Chorus: Pressure]
Reality speaking, dem all baby
Legendary, man ah bust it from the 80s
Dem fi know me head sicker than rabies
Black in America, yeah, don't play me (Heeeey!)
When we ah step, dem swear see ah di navy (True)
Revolution kick off like inna '80 (Uh ohhhh)
Dem fi know me head sicker than rabies
Black in America, yeah, just pay me

[Verse 2]
Hey, this Black man made it in America
Facts, my blood killed lab rats
I'm one like a snowflake, abstract
That's why I take it to that Mad Max (Heeeey!)
And I grew up across from a cemetery
That's why my commentary sound like yo obituary
Grown man talk
We got our Denzel on, I told LL I'm just gettin' warm n***a (Heeeey!)
The Tri State where n***as dyin' over bullets in they prostate
And cops against Blacks never gon' migrate
I ain't gettin' shot, they try to pull me over, I turn it to a car chase (Heeeey!)
These little kids into gang violence
Artists gettin' called hip hop but they ain't rhymin'
Y'all voted for 'em, now they a rockstar
I feel like a Black film tryna get a Oscar (Heeeey!)
God forgive me for my sins
You dealt me these cards so I'm gon' play it to win
And I'm tryna get 40 more haters
So I can sign 'em on to the Reggie I hate 'em but glad he made it
I'm breathless
[Chorus: Pressure]
Reality speaking, dem all baby
Legendary, man ah bust it from the 80s
Dem fi know me head sicker than rabies
Black in America, yeah, don't play me (Heeeey!)
When we ah step, dem swear see ah di navy (True)
Revolution kick off like inna '80
Dem fi know me head sicker than rabies
Black in America, yeah, just pay me

[Verse 3]
Hey, this Black man made it in America
Can you believe how I did it?
I had faith and had God as my witness
I couldn't just be a artist, I had to learn the business
And haters on the side, they tried to sell me wolf tickets
But I'm still relevant, me and rap we got a life sentence
Success is like a bank loan, it's hard to get
I worked hard for errything, I wasn't offered it
And it's up to me to show my babies how to be a boss
I teach 'em how to win but also how to take a loss
And education is key
But nowadays I advise you to learn a trade
And not depend on a college degree (Heeeey!)
I sold drugs but I don't have no story to tell
'Cause music always was my life, Patti Labelle
As long as I live, you'll get honor and dedication
And f**k the media interrogatin'
I'm breathless
[Outro]
You see it on the news
You see it on social media
But when you a Black man in America, it's very scary and terrifying
Believe me!
Sometimes I wonder, "will there ever be equality for a Black man in America?"
I doubt it!
