Ras Kass Unveils New “F.L.Y.” Music Video
Soul on Ice 2 LP Set for September 11 Release
Today, venerated LA rap legend, Ras Kass, unveils “F.L.Y.,” a new single produced by DJ Green Lantern and paired with a visual inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s cult classic A Clockwork Orange. The video, directed by Guerillapress & Pep Williams, premiered this morning via Ambrosia For Heads.
“‘F.L.Y.’ is actually my ode to Prince’s ‘1999,’” says Ras Kass. “It’s a HipHop New Years song. The triple entendre being it’s an acronym for Fuck Last Year and FLY, as in ‘time flies when you’re having fun.’ Also, in the HipHop lifestyle you want to dress & act ‘fly’! It’s wavy.”
“The track is produced by my bro Green Lantern (Nas’ DJ) who I met over 20 years ago,” continues Ras. “I’ve been loving what he’s been cooking up for Griselda records so we bodied this record for my 25th Anniversary, but we are looking ahead to the future. Fuck Last Year!”
Ras Kass’ acclaimed debut LP, Soul on Ice, was released via Priority Records in 1996 and is set for a long-awaited follow up on September 11 with Soul on Ice 2. This time around, Ras Kass assembled a hall of fame lineup of rappers and producers including Diamond D, Pete Rock, Snoop Dogg, Immortal Technique, Justice League, Cee-Lo Green, DJ Green Lantern, Everlast, Styles P and M.O.P.
