PREMIERE: Clairmont The Second Hits “The Road” In His New Video

Clairmont The Second is a Toronto-based rapper / producer whose latest release,Quest For Milk & Honey (Black Edition)  was nominated for this year’s Polaris Prize, an award given to the best full-length Canadian album based on artistic merit—regardless of genre, sales, or record label.

Being included on the Polaris Prize was super sick,” the artist tells MASS APPEAL. “I was discouraged earlier this year thinking people weren’t paying attention enough but these last few months I’ve been seeing that what I’m doing is working. Making the Polaris Long List just shows the right people are watching and I just have to keep doing what I’m doing.”

CTS says he’s already working on a new project, even as he continues to work the current one: “Another album was needed, it’s urgent, people need something new from me. It’s cooking.” In the meantime, he’ll be “directing more visuals that look like old school films.” Clairmont will also continue producing other artists, although he notes that he’s “very selective” as to who he chooses to work with. Hezi is one with whom he’s been cooking something up.

Today MASS APPEAL premieres Clairmont’s self-directed music video for “The Road,” which demonstrates the versatility of his talents even as it evokes simpler times. (Note the vintage N64 controllers by the side of his bed). “This was actually a part of a short film I made for my first headlining show,” the artist recalls. “It consisted of footage I shot over the course of a bit over a year and ended at where I’m at. It ended with me putting up flyers to the show and then finally ‘The Road’ video plays. I decided to upload it a couple days after the show, I liked it.” Peep the visuals up top.
