Raw Sylk is the debut studio album by American rapper Sylk-E. Fyne. It was released on March 24, 1998 through RCA Records with Gerald ‘Big Yam’ Baillergeau and Victor ‘Vino’ Merritt producing the entire album.
The album is best remembered for its lead single “Romeo and Juliet“, a duet with William “Chill” Warner. The song peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Rap Singles and reached gold status two months after its release.
The album, however, did not match “Romeo and Juliet’s” success, only making it to 121 on the Billboard 200 and 47 on the R&B charts. The album’s failure eventually led to RCA dropping Sylk-E. Fyne from the label.
