The Boy Illinois and Drey Skonie are Members of the “Ruling Class”

A powerful proclamation of black pride by The Boy Illinois and Drey Skonie, the visuals for “Ruling Class” were released Friday, August 5.

The final single from Illi’s 2015 project, DuSable,” the song was inspired by the 1996 Nas classic “If I Ruled the World”, which features the incomparable Lauryn Hill. A declaration of how a work ruled by Illi would include structure within black families, self-sustainability and rehabilitation in black communities, “Ruling Class” is the perfect positive message in such tumultuous times.

The video was directed by Kite! and endorsed by another Chicago native, Lupe  Fiasco.
