Let's be fair — classifying Clairmont The Second only as a rapper would be an understatement. Since the start of his career in 2013, Clairmont has released a new project every year, and on each he wears multiple hats as the writer, producer, instrumentalist, singer, audio engineer and even video director.

"Having the control of doing everything means I get things sounding exactly the way I want," he says. "I don't have to answer to anybody."
