The Internet is watching and soon the streets may be talking about Allan Kingdom. Hailing from Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota the young artist drops his latest video “Mediocre” where he produces a beat live while performing the lyrics — all from his bedroom! The Francisco Bibiloni-directed visuals shows Kingdom using nothing but his laptop, making the concept simple yet genius. The Internet sensation also happened to be mentioned and re-tweeted by well known A&R, Plain Pat (Kid Cudi anyone…duh). Stating that we should take his advice now or we will be jumping on a bandwagon six months later. When asked about Plain Pat’s timely co-sign, the humbled artist stated the following :
Plain Pat’s someone I’ve looked at as a huge role model and his music has literally made a huge part of who I am so it’s all a little surreal. He flew out to Minnesota my first headlining show when I was 17. Glad that we’ve finally joined forces now. Even though I still got a long way to go it’s a dream come true and an honor. – Allan Kingdom
The point is this, when cats like Plain Pat are talking about you, it usually isn’t in vain. Check out Allan Kingdom’s site for more of his work.
