Hook x2 When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold me down/ When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold you down/ Sometimes times I need you to listen, not with the ego tripping/ Sometimes you need me to listen, but im out here drifting/ Bridge x4 We don't stop, naw we don't quit I said we don't stop, naw we don't quit Curbside Jones Verse When the servers go down, our hereos temporarily die/ Media feeds often lie/ Amen, so when the day ends who gonna you put your faith in?/ Time's wasting, yo why you chasing shoes you aint laced in/ You hit yo friends, they don't get back, gotta read between the syntax/ feeling seen, gotta fix that, and realize the times just miss matched/ Head in the clouds too galactic, keep the world view pragmatic/ Yo, My moms made a classic, ecstatic, her and my dad mapped it/ Mr existential, the stencil came from higher parentals/ When my soul exit this rental, I hope I inspire mentals/ Can't claim greatness without doing the maintence, patience/ Aiming shooting shots for graces, gracious statements/ No ones truly stationary, the timing and the placement varies/ Seek the beauty of sanctuary, when the timing and placements scary/ Whats the price of living? Shit Got me pocket watching prophets/ Deposit profits, pocket watch watching, whats the topic?/ Hook x2 When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold me down/ When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold you down/ Sometimes times I need you to listen, not with the ego tripping/ Sometimes you need me to listen, but im out here drifting/ Bridge 2 x4 We caught up in this ran again, we caught up in this rain again Musa Reems Verse No time to talk cause I’m bringing in another bag/ Runtz in the fronto helpin me ignore the past/ I just got a imported jag and bitch it’s sorta fast/ I use to couldn’t afford to have/ Funny now I can afford to brag/ Checkpoints for boarding pass and a Doja pack/ three shots below the cap/ This Glock 40 hold me down cause it’ll blow you back/ What‘s up with you hood gave me trust issues/ niggas was down my niggas would up pistols/ And cuff bitches so nothing that’s uplifting/ When the clouds hit ground Imma move with enough vision/ Up and it’s been a minute cars with no ceilings in it/ I pray to stack this paper got no time for indecision/ Thotties in the mentions who bougie and independent/ I ain’t into feelings just money and building with it/ Hook x2 When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold me down/ When the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold you down/ Sometimes times I need you to listen, not with the ego tripping/ Sometimes you need me to listen, but im out here drifting/

Curbside Jones Verse hyaku man en on the calling card when im calling God/ Ball like bakugan, you been falling hard, why you stalling God?/ y2k to the matrix, transcend with the oculus/ Snatch yo wife's toupee, shape shift, blend with the audience/ Save the small talk, we parallel like how the car parked/ Behave with the the small bark, compare the scale when the bars spark/ What you think i rap for? To sit and not use a passport?/ We can blink and Fast-forward can't abuse what you asked for/ Next time I'm in kyoto I'll pour one out for the homies/ Ayo, this right here for the homies/ cats wanna break bread, might break legs trying to foot the bill/ If looks could kill id take heads, shake feds, stay afoot and chill/ keep it solid state, trust you aint brolic mate/ Put em in a box like solid snake to consolidate/ While they sit, plan and fester I channel ancestors/ Never get a hand that's lesser, cant cancel the grand gestures/ Hook x2 Ayo, when you hear this in yo whip turn it up/ Turn it up, yeah yeah yeah yeah turn it up/ Ayo, when you hear this in yo whip turn it up/ Turn it up, yeah yeah yeah yeah turn it up/ Garrott Odom Verse turn this shit up fool you should remember who you listening to/ throw them into abyss if they behave the way bitch niggas do/ my crew is indivisible just like the broken nation that resides beneath/ where jesus rules see you aint never seen the truth/ living thru abuse wasnt easy but yall needed me/ colder flavor than tcb(y)majors never meant shit to me/ a lot yall way too worried about what’s hot/ but not worried about what we’re not doing with the talents we’ve got/ opportunities missed in a sunken abyss/ sinking to darker depths in the midst of the bullshit/ speaking our untimely demises all through our lyrics/ crying for helping but its cool as long as it makes some millions/ so what you dealing?/ pain, fame or personal gain?/ its all the same when it comes to way the brain interacts with it/ so watch what you putting out cause the same thing could be rotting what's in ya/

about

Fresh off the heels of his release (Gyakusou Vol.1) with Japanese producer Ballhead, Curbside Jones returns with Floating In Between. The EP boasts 3 tracks all varying in different moods and subject matter which highlight the stylings of Curbside Jones and Japanese producer Dhrma.

Ego Trippin takes a step into the mind of Curbside Jones as he navigates social interactions and the feeling of drifting away during his day to day life. Starting with the question, "If the clouds hit the ground, who gon hold me down?" you can tell Curbside Jones has been deep in thought about his self worth and trust in others. Chicago artist Musa Reems offers a complimentary verse that gives insight on why someone from the Chi may feel as though the clouds are hitting the ground around him.

Y2K20 reveals a more confident Curbside Jones as he asks, "What you think I rap for? To sit and not use a passport?" again tapping into his worldly view of the rap game. Atlanta bred, now Florida based artist Garrott Odom delivers a verse that questions listeners and their motivation behind who they choose to support and adopt into their listening rotation stating, "speaking our untimely demises all through our lyrics/ crying for helping but its cool as long as it makes some millions."

Nigo 93 paints the reality of the world that Curbside Jones lives in while touching on racial tension, death of friends, and seeking a lifestyle of freedom one can be proud of. Curbside Jones states, "Ape shall never kill ape," repeatedly throughout the song as a guideline on how to live, inspired by Nigo's era of Bathing Ape. Tokyo based artist OOg (1/2 of Laflife) joins Curbside Jones to illustrate how following your dreams and staying afloat will keep you grounded.
