Raury Pens a Piece For Those Wrongfully Murdered: "Fly"

Up-and-coming singer, Raury went to Twitter today to announce his new Fly record — releasing tomorrow at 1pm, featuring Malik Shakur.

I wrote fly right after hearing that Darren Wilson was not being indicted for murdering Mike Brown. I wrote it instantly the words and music didn’t even feel like mine. I knew that this track belonged to the universe.

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.

My best friend Malik Shakur also felt the need to express his hope for the future and the growth of black excellence when he recorded with me in the midst of America trying to Capture his Aunt Assata Shakur. He also looks to walk along with me in the healing of the world through love and high frequency music

Deep in my heart I know everything is going to be alright.
