“If I ruled the world…I’d free all my sons…black diamonds & pearls…imagine that…if I ruled the world…”
The Boy Illinois is back with the visuals for Ruling Class, the final single from his project DuSable. The track puts a nice bow on the project & preps Illi for the next project Home Court Advantage which will be dropping soon. Inspired by Nas & Lauryn Hill’s If I Ruled The World, the song is produced by The 25th Hour & features singer Drey Skonie. In the song, Illi explains his method of thinking & the impact he wishes for it to have on the world. It’s so hot, Lupe Fiasco threw it out there a little sooner than intended. The visuals were filmed at The Gold Pyramid House, a great space for a great message. Illi raps, “I be on the balcony…practicing alchemy…heavy meditation in the morning…tell them if they out for me…they gotta account for me…& everybody else that came before em…”.
