Allan Kingdom at Rock the Garden 2015

Kanye West's favorite Twin Cities rapper has some birthday surprises for you. Allan Kingdom, who turns 22 today, will drop his new album Northern Lights ... as soon as he gets done jogging, it seems. The new release will eventually be available for free Wednesday at the St. Paul MC's website

For those looking to celebrate birthdays and/or LPs with Kingdom, he's throwing a secret-ish birthday bash Friday. The location is unknown, but the poster suggests it'll be conveniently located within the state of Minnesota. Tickets are $10 for what's being billed as a Northern Lights listening party. You can RSVP here.

Kingdom, of course, was featured on 2015 Kanye West single "All Day" alongside Trinidadian-born rapper/singer Theophilus London and U.K. upstart Paul McCartney. The track is nominated for two 2016 Grammy Awards — Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. In 2014, Kingdom released Future Memoirs, his third solo full-length, and the eponymous debut from his band Thestand4rd, featuring Corbin, Bobby Raps, and Psymun. 

In honor of Kingdom's 22nd birthday, here's an appropriate banger from the former archrival of Yeezy:
