Pressure is one of the top tracks off of Lupe Fiasco’s critically acclaimed album, Food & Liquor. The track is straight fire with Lupe and Jay-Z trading verses over a hard hittin` beat that sounds like something you would hear in an 80s cops and robbers program. With a smooth chorus and tight lyrics, this is one of my favorite tracks on the album, although not on the same level as the Mike Shinoda produced, The Instrumental, which I consider the plateau on Food & Liquor. Pressure will most likely not be released as a single, but it’s definitely stands out on an album full of bangers.

After pushing back the release of his album numerous times, Lupe Fiasco can finally take a deep breath in and exhale. His long awaited album, Food & Liquor, is now in stores and should impress everyone from the hip-hop heads...
