Q&A | Clairmont the Second Joins Del The Funky Homosapien On Stage for M for Montreal

Filed under: 
IXclusive Interviews

M.W.A (MTL With Attitude) will bring together legendary Del The Funky Homosapien – his first time performing in Montre​al since 2006 alongside rappers Lou Phelps, Cadence Weapon, Clairmont the Second, Flawless Gretzky, Mike Shabb & Kevin Na$h, and WordUP! Battles & FouKi for an unforgettable urban night at the Cabaret du Casino.  

We will be co-presenting this night as a part of HUB Fest, powered by Casino de Montréal in collaboration with M for Montreal and have decided to hit up most of the rappers performing that night to get to know them a bit better in anticipation for the lit event that's to come. 

Clairmont The Second has been on our radar for quite some time now. We even hit up a video game store with him to shoot photos and run a full interview

He will be playing alongside the rest of the line-up on the 17th of November and we just can't wait. Click play on his latest project titled "Lil Mont from The Ave" which was released a month ago and scroll through our Q&A below: 

How would you describe Clairmont under 140 characters?  

Clairmont The Second can't be put into a box, he does everything.

Describe to us what a typical day in your life looks like? 

I wake up around noon, I create, play some video games, I go to bed the next day in the early morning. I'm really trying to fix my sleeping pattern though.

If you had to pick a gif that represents your music, what would it be? 

What is something people would be surprised to learn about Clairmont The Second? 

I think people would be surprised at the fact that they didn't know about Clairmont The Second earlier. People in different cities think I'm a big artist and are confused as to why people don't know about me.

How involved are you when it comes to visuals or music videos? 

I direct, and edit all of my videos and sometimes I even shoot some of it. I direct all my promo videos, my commercials, or  my photo shoots. I design all the flyers and little misc. things.

Any upcoming projects you can tease with us? What’s to come? 

I'm working more behind the scenes for now but Lil Mont from The Ave came out recently so go listen to that and tell at least 50 people about it.
