Slaughter Gang affiliate and Atlanta rapper Real Recognize Rio has teamed up with 21 Savage for his new “Pressure” music video centered around the stresses of hustling and maneuvering through the streets while simultaneously starting his career as a rapper.

The single follows his late-April offering “Million Dolla Mouthpiece” and his under-the-radar but solid nonetheless Lot 2 Say full-length project released earlier this year. The track benefits from an appearance from 21 whose at his lyrical best, comparing his hustle to JAY-Z, growing up with roaches in his bed and sticking up dice games for some early income. There’s a menacing confidence when he spits, “Swear I was thuggin’ it was just me and my pistol” that’s memorable enough and his “Fourth quarter, three seconds left, ni**a you can put it all on me,” speaks to that swagger once more.

The music video is a dreary depiction of the paranoia that comes with hustling. The narrative surrounds a drug deal gone bad after being shorted during the exchange. Watch the visual above and stay tuned for more from Real Recognize Rio in the future.

In more music news, Chief Keef and Zaytoven reconnected for their new “2nd Day Out” song.
