"Suicide" Jones performed as a wing walker and parachute jumper and held the record for a delayed parachute drop on March 2, 1939 jumping 24,468 feet before opening his chute just 800ft above the ground. His hallmark was that he seem to be ubiquitous regardless of the associated issue. He became involved with the Aeronautical Department of the UNIA, which was an organization founded by Marcus Garvey's black movement. His greatest claim to fame is perhaps the fact that he transcended both the pre- and post- Charles Lindbergh eras, took on a all challengers and defied skeptics like Lindbergh who said...aviation is a tool especially shaped for western hands...one of these possessions, which permit the white race to live at all in a pressing sea of Yellow, Black, and Brown. K Skillz brings the history of "Suicide" Jones to life in this explosive Jazz/Rap single produced by Frankie G.
