We found this club on a side street, but I was kind of iffy,
I said this to pressure just before I finished my sentence,
This guy was huge and I was stumbling with my speech,
He said to us “So finding us was accidental?
He said "What’s your name?" he said “Pressureâ€?, I said “Suffaâ€?,
So we went right in, we sat right down,
He had to go downstairs cos the bar was underground,
I agreed, yes indeed, we could be here all night,
And I'm feeling alright, this place is kind of cool man,
Ruins this vibe that I’ve got going,
The ladies were hot I sat down and listened,
The DJ was laying tracks, keeping people on the floor and then,

These dim lights hold, silhouetted figures fit in tight moulds,
I might stroll, see what I can plunder, but I wonder,
A strange feeling, this place got my brain reeling,
Feels like a broken dream, I'm walking through a smoke machine and,
Sat down, looked at the picture on the bottle label,
And as he licked her thighs I saw that glint in her eyes
She kissed him goodbye, threw me a smile and a grin,
Walked to the bar as the tender looked right through me I said
He said: "Welcome to the Sentinel, I hope your stay here's perpetual,
I bought a round, man I think this is watered down,
Closing to the public so let’s make our move,
Man I swore I was bent "Suffa man I’ve heard this all before it went",

Man this place’s got me reeling I took a seat to get my focus,
At about one o'clock, the club manager approached us,
Cos we run an open mic battle every night,
I said “Get me the mic I might flipâ€?, then the lights switched,
Rhyme progression begun, something possessing my tongue,
“When will they let us stop?â€? I checked the time and it was,
Battled MC after MC, battled MCs for days,
The manager said “You boys can never leave this tournament,
