Soundboy Kill

Album: Fly International Luxurious Art (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Raekwon drafted in Canadian R&B vocalist Melanie Fiona and Jamaican dancehall deejay Assassin for this track, two of a number of guest vocalists featured on his Fly International Luxurious Art album. The Wu-Tang rhymer told Billboard magazine: "Even though I know people love me to tell stories and do what I do, I love the fact that I was able to make this project more international and have an international West Indian reggae artist get on this album and do what he wanted to do."

    "I'm big on reggae," he added. "A lot of people don't know that. That was a part of our culture as well. I just really wanted to pay homage to the sound clash and music vibe that used to take place back in the '90s."
