Raury's Animated New Visuals Help Us 'Fly' Down The Black History Timeline

Raury's new video for "Fly" featuring Malik Shakur dates all the major points of the black struggle.

The acknowledgment of Black History simple doesn't end on the last day of February. Rising Atlanta singer Raury—the youngin' who has already captured the attention of Kanye West and OutKast—has been doing his fair share of studying and sharing when it comes to the tales of the black struggle and triumph.

In his Malia Murray-directed video for "Fly"—a song he and collaborator Malik Shakur wrote right after finding out Darren Wilson got off scott free for killing Michael Brown—we jump right into the 2D pages of history books. From the misery slaves endured on plantations and the storied killing of Emmett Till to President Barack Obama's 2008 election and dawn of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, no pages in the lives of brown faces go unturned.

The Indigo Child singer understands that in order to mend the future, we must fully understand and come to terms with the past. Get in on the lesson up top.

Dreezy spoke to Coveteur about the lovelorn record.

"‘Love Someone’ kind of fell in place on its own. I was in the studio working on tracks, and I wanted a real-life personal song that I could include,” Dreezy said. “I was drawing inspiration from past broken relationships on my verses, and Jacquees just happened to pull up to the studio and lay down the perfect hook. I didn’t even plan for him to be on it, but it spoke to my heart and the emotion I had on the song. There was a point where I almost cried listening to it back.”

The record appears on Dreezy’s Big Dreez, which was released back in January. Jacquees is slated to release his forthcoming album, King of R&B,  on Nov. 8.
