With Soul On Ice 2 dropping in September, Ras Kass is keeping things in motion with the project’s second single.
After kicking things off with “Guns N Roses” last month, the West Coast emcee comes through with the DJ Green Lantern-laced “F.L.Y.”
“F.L.Y. is actually my ode to Prince’s 1999. It’s a Hip-Hop New Year’s song,” Kass told AFH. “The triple-entendre being it’s an acronym for ‘F*ck Last Year’ and ‘FLY,’ as in ‘time flies why you’re having fun.’ Also, in the Hip-Hop lifestyle, you want to dress and act ‘fly.’ It’s wavy.”
“The track is produced by my bro Green Lantern, who I met over 20 years ago,” he continued. “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. F*ck last year!”
