12 O'Clock Track: Mig Mora, Scheme, and Chandler London, "Kingdom"

Posted By on 10.25.12 at 12:00 PM

It's been nearly six months since local streetwear company and music label City of Win released its debut mixtape, W1N Vol. 1, and I still find myself returning to it regularly; ShowYouSuck's collaboration with Henny B and Mig Mora, "Trilluminati," is one of my favorite local rap tracks of the year. Mora, who cofounded City of Win, appears on a few other songs on the mixtape, including the standout "Kingdom," which includes drops from Scheme and Chandler London.

Yesterday Ruby Hornet premiered the "Kingdom" video, which gives me an excuse to make it today's 12 O'Clock Track.

Local director Elijah Alvarado took footage of the three MCs rapping and superimposed it onto graffiti, posters, and stickers filmed on the streets of Chicago. (See if you can catch the Reader boxes that pop up.) It's a slick-looking video for a great tune; I'm glad Mora is including the track on his forthcoming mixtape, Music for the End of the World, scheduled to drop just before the allegedly Mayan-predicted apocalypse. But enough about doom—watch the clip for "Kingdom" below:
