Flying Lotus delivers a new song titled Black Heaven. Before the song dropped, he explained that the song was actually created with the late Ras G on the last time they linked up. Ras G died on Monday, July 29 at the age of 40. Following Ras G’s death, Flying Lotus tweeted, “Ras_G has left the planet, far beyond the galaxy. Show us the way to the cosmos my friend. I will love you forever. Thank you for your time on earth.”
FlyLo explained that he met with Ras G because he wanted his guidance on an upcoming movie he was working on. The two sat down and ended up bouncing ideas off of each other and that’s when they created “Black Heaven.”
“Black Heaven” is the last thing Ras G and Flying Lotus worked on together before Ras died, and was premiered by Flying Lotus on BBC Radio DJ Giles Peterson’s Ras G tribute show, Celebrating Ras G.
