Story Behind the Song

So I'm sitting in the Studio ( Maza ) and my manz Tone says hey I got a beat for you..He lets me hear it..he leaves the room and the words..I feel it the pressures on me comes to me instantly and the rest is history...

Lyrics

Artist ? EPITOME f/ Mariel
Song ? PRESSURE


Chorus:

I feel it the pressure?s on me / Gotta rep when only
its just you ya homie then it stops
It ain?t enough to say you?re hungry / Everyday we gon
be on them corners
hitting up them blocks
We came so so far doing us / Can?t go backwards can?t
lose your touch
Gotta keep up before your times up / We only getting
older


(Maza) Verse 1:

Yes its Maza either you down with the team that I run
with / formed a regime and I mean it my niggas we
don?t run when / the pressure?s on / oh it?s ep-i-tome
/ can?t sit around waiting a whole year has left
and gone / so I press along a nigga up early morning /
my mind, racing a thousand miles a minute while I?m
yawning / I?m on it / they can?t deny me the word
play?s contagious / like the Isley?s they urse?ca /
the pavement that I walk and my birthday / the earth
quakes, Maza like the son of man / sort of like a
Malcolm X / by the window gun in hand / ready for
what ever if you feel me niggas holla / 25 still at
home broke and ain?t got a dollar to your name / but
I?m saying we can change that / 2nd coming came back /
rearrange the game I?m the same cat / niggas slept on
didn?t stop there / I took it to the next song / 7
years later we the best holmes

Chorus:


Bridge:

Ain?t nobody listen when we said we would make it
Ain?t nobody hear us when we said we would take it
Straight from the bottom yeah we rose to the top
We did this on our own now we know now we?re hot
But I still remember them days
Niggas slammed them door shut they turned us away
But we still here ain?t going nowhere
E.P.E ENTERTAINMENT!


(Ced) Verse 2:

I picked a fine time to get on my grind I?m / prepared
for the worse / you had to know a niggas pockets was
thirst / I go to church then I head to that open mic /
I need to get on cause being broke is cutting into my
social life / my paycheck is safe sex females ignoring
me / hitting me with that you?re a good friend I move
accordingly / fortunately Cedric ain?t fronted once /
I swallowed my pride so many times a nigga needed his
stomached pumped / my life in itself is a conflict of
interest / combined we 30,000 in debt so don?t tempt
us / I?m finished negotiating now its put up or shut
up time / we plotting like them white boys in Bowling
for Columbine / the Bible and the ski mask on top of
the dresser / nowadays I?m looking at both to handle
this pressure / it gotta get better these holes in my
sweater?ll have me flowing forever / or still slinging
the coldest of weather ya feel me
