Video: Clairmont The Second - "A Declaration"

unnamed

Teenaged Toronto-based rap phenomenon Clairmont The Second whose Quest for Milk and Honey album was recently voted one of the top 25 Canadian albums of 2016 (#17) by CBC Music has been spreading his unique rap stylings across North America since January 31st as part of the No Warm Up tour with SonReal. As a prelude to the forthcoming release of new music and visuals in 2017 with new label partner Black Box Music (Shad, Classified, SonReal) the re-issued co-directed “A Declaration” video clip by Jorden Lee and Clairmont The Second is one of those cinematic must-see music videos that reads more like a short film than anything, and contains a clever build-up and killer climax (literally). Uber respected on the Toronto music scene as a prolific one man music-and-multi-media army who shoots and edits his own video content, while writing, producing and mixing his own work, this song and video leaves no question as to where the future of Canadian rap creativity and resourcefulness lies. When he raps “me on a mic, that’s a problem” on this buzz track, he really means it.
