I had a look at the lyrics of the song "Big City life" by Mattafix. There are phrases which I can't understand or even if I know their meaning I don't their origin. Who uses them? In what situations?

"Big City Life,
Me try fi get by,
Pressure nah ease up no matter how hard me try.
Big City Life,
Here my heart have no base,
And right now Babylon de pon me case"

The unclear fragments are: me; fi, nah (I guess it means no); de pon me case.

Thanks for your help.

I think it says: "Here my heart have no base" In the third sentence. Meaning that he don't belong there. :-)
Thanks man. Really help me out here!

I actually think, from the context, that the word is spelled wrong; it should be "bass." "Babylon [the man] they pawned my case. Bass also = "Bottom." It's a pun.

I try to get by

The Pressure is not easing up no matter how hard i try.

Big City Life,
Here my heart has no base,
And right now Babylon is on my case/is bothering/harassing me
I try to get by,
(The) pressure doesn't ease up no matter how hard I try.
...
Here my heart has no base,
And right now Babylon is on my case
