Allan Kingdom Reps Minnesota In A Hot Air Balloon and an Old School Porsche in “The Ride” Visuals

It’s fitting that Allan Kingdom‘s video for “The Ride” dropped this week as the song referenced in the hook comes off Kanye’s “Late Registration” which turned 11 today. Taking viewers from the sky to the ground and many places in between Kingdom shows off some of Minnesota’s biggest attractions and best kept secrets.

Coming off his January project “Northern Lights,” Kingdom’s previous release “Fables” also carried the same awe and majestic feeling as “The Ride” as he traveled to Jamaica and rapped beneath a waterfall. “The Ride,” co-directed by Ben Hughs and Kingdom himself, meshes the song’s care-free disposition with ease.
