Raury – Fly (Ft. Malik Shakur) [Music Video]
If I had to pick one artist that I believe will be a household name by the end of 2015, I would pick Raury without a doubt. His eloquent lyrics, variety of styles, and the fact that he’ll be performing at some major festivals this year will lead to the inevitable success of the young Stone Mountain native.
His newest release is the official music video for “Fly”, a song he released with his friend Malik Shakur earlier this year. This song touches on the disturbing trend of unarmed African-Americans being killed by police officers, and Raury describes this song as one that “belongs to the universe”. The touching lyrics and message of this song are brought to light even more by the drawn visuals. Any time Raury picks up a pen it seems like a masterpiece is formed, and “Fly” is absolutely no exception.
Fly is a reset button on the revolution. Fly is an ode to the ones who were wrongfully murdered, mourning the deaths and also looking on the bright side to help us find peace in the fact that they are in a better place, they fly in heaven now.
