Done over a hard-hitting in-house production, Kimilist’s menacing tone and lyrics echo his takes on an increasingly dysfunctional country brought to its knees by an enormous wave of ‘Pressure’. Stream or download ‘Pressure’ across all major digital platforms here: https://ffm.to/jyyjqa1
The Mimlife Records artist has never been this articulate and imposing. He’s very confident in his approach on the 3-minute Drill song, showcasing a braggadocio that’s perfect in depicting a situation many Ghanaians won’t have a hard time noticing. As such, ‘Pressure’ is absolutely gripping, mostly thanks to the above but also how effortless the rapper is in turning this melancholy into a booming street sound. There’s simply some magic in how Kimilist goes about the whole song, and we love it.
Speaking to Elite PR (@theelitepr) about his new song, the artist shared: “There’s been lots of pressure in the streets lately, and everyone I know keeps talking about #FixtheCountry or how they want out of the country. And that’s exactly what ‘Pressure’ is all about. It’s for everyone feeling the heat—boys and girls alike, even the chairmen! No one’s safe anymore and everyone’s scheming to ease off the pressure, hence the title”.
Since his official debut, Kimilist has been a joy to watch. His transition from an aspiring emcee to one of the country’s notable Drill-centered emcees is a success story worth sharing – one that has seen Kimilist collaborate with the likes of E.L, Kwame Yesu, Medikal, Ypee and Yaw Tog. He has also dropped a slew of performances at shows, with the ‘Yawa’ star repping at the MMC LIVE (2019), 4syte TV G-Power concert (2019), E.L’s BAR Concert (2020) and his label’s annual concert, Music Is My Life from (2020) and beyond.
‘Pressure’ was produced by Iyke Parker and its mixing & mastering done by WebieJustDidIt.
