We dropped a video of us performing a little freestyle over our take on a Kool & The Gang classic, and this is what happened (audio wise). Check out the video of us enjoying the summer time and jamming outside in beautiful Queens, New York City by following this link--------->

Verse (KB Jones):
Sorry it's been a minute, but life gets in the way/ So let me catch you up on my day to day/ Couple of songs got made, couple of bills got paid/ Couple of nights we laughed, couple of fights got had/ It's good to be a human/ That's something that I've learned/ Better to crash and burn than never make propellers turn/ We can fly/ I was thinking you and I can daydream as we look off to the summer sky/ I think about a world that isn't so cruel/ And love would be the drug that everyone wanted to use/ So roll it up, light it up, pass it around and smoke it/ We are brothers, we are family and it kills me we don't notice that/ Fear is crippling/ We just keep picking sides, you and I are giving in/ I'm too conscious for politics/ too middle to be a moderate/ You all will lose your mind and follow blind into apocalypse/ It's not so much a gift as a craft that takes time/ Writing feelings on page to find logic in your design/
And then maybe then we can chill/
And then maybe then we can chill/
And then maybe then we can chill/
You in a superficial ditch I can only fill with the real/ I'm here to peel out and steer our of control/ I want to die with a smile/ Come feel my soul/ It's summer time in NYC/ That means the heat fills the streets till you can hardly breathe/ The ladies showing skin making it hard to breathe/ and a BBQ is need like you wouldn't believe/ I got a Bronx Brew on ice, I do it right/ Kool & The gang on the beats take me to flight/ Got some burgers on the grill and my family in the yard/ For a few moments here life isn't that hard/
And now I think that we can chill/
And now I think that we can chill/
And now I think that we can chill/
I'm in a beautiful ditch I can only fill with the real/
