Look I gotta keep my feet on top of the dirt
Cause everywhere I go they like "When you dropping some work?"
Jay Rock get’s deep with this line. He is implying that he has to stay alive, “keep his feet on "top” of the dirt,“(stay alive) before he can continue to make more music.
Because of him trying to keep himself alive he hasn’t been able to put out as much music. Infact his last album Follow Me Home was released in 2011 and still hasn´t even announced his next project.
“Dropping some work” could also mean selling dope, which he has a history of doing.
