These days, artists can’t count on the older generation to show them how things are done. Too much has changed over the past years, and the best way to get things done is to figure them out for yourself.

Clairmont The Second is a 17-year-old from Toronto, and he makes his own music in his room. From production to recording to mixing, it’s all him, and it’s working out well. He just released his album Project II, and he’s already scheduled to open for Isaiah Rashad and GoldLink. Next he’ll be doing a series of small house party-type shows around Toronto.

“Flame Princess” is his first music video. It’s an introduction to Clairmont’s young-creative-kid vibe and the confidence this young artist already has. Watch the video above, and listen to Project II below.
