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 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 F##k 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,” Ras Kass said.
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.
