Ras Kass gives the DJ Green Lantern produced single ‘ F.L.Y.’ the visual treatment.
‘F.L.Y.‘, directed by Guerilla Press and Pep Williams, the video is shot in blurred out black-and-white as Ras Kass spits tough over Green Lanternâ€™s dark, boom-bap production. The â€œWaterproof MCâ€ rhymes, â€œThey ask me if Iâ€™m one of the best / Just think Black Thought on Funkmaster Flex / Mmmm, yes / Fck reminiscinâ€™, livinâ€™ in the past sht / â€˜Cause not everything gold is classic / All I know is get dough / Battle rapper reachinâ€™ like a tip-toe / Todayâ€™s current currency is cryptoâ€™ / Hate to blast ya, but I have to.â€ The close of the except nods to The Notorious B.I.G.
As the video rolls on, Kass continues to ball out on the mic, this time with the full court press. â€œEvery year the ball drop in Time Square / At age 12, my balls drop / Adolescent male, ball big like LaVar / Spit like Lamar / Now the Arabics still tryâ€™na get it in shalom / Get to the bag like airport carousels / Industry dudes saying â€˜real Rapâ€™ll never sellâ€™ / You know that guy? The carrot top, the fairy tale.â€
