Juno Award-winner and hit-maker, Classified, will celebrate the release of his 15th studio album, Greatful, due out Jan. 15 (Half Life Records/Universal Music Canada), with a performance at the Marquee Ballroom in Halifax on Friday, March 18.
Classified, also known as Luke Boyd, has long been making waves at home
and abroad with his trademark style and sound. With each release, the
rapper-producer elevates his game; sharpening word play, experimenting
with new sounds, and perfecting his flow.
Riding off the Gold-certified success of his career defining 2013 self-titled album, Greatful sees a revitalized Classified going back to hip-hop’s roots with the street track "Filthy,"
featuring hip-hop pioneer DJ Premier. The track and video harken back
to early ‘90s cypher hip-hop in Brooklyn with sharp, witty wordplay over
a simplified, catchy beat. "Filthy" is one of the hungriest tracks of
Classified’s career, with the rapper settling into his niche of
conscious lyrics followed with a sing-along chorus.
From classic vibes to modern day anthems, the lead single "No Pressure" is a smash in the vein of 2013’s five time platinum-selling single "Inner Ninja."
Teaming up with rap icon Snoop Dogg, Classified has created a feel-good
anthem that details a wild night out and the consequences that come
with it. Snoop brings his expected charisma and mellow flow to the
table, working in sync with the Canadian MC’s own.
The secret to Classified’s success has always been his inherent ability
to break down the barrier between the performer and the man. A dedicated
family man, Classified’s charisma and approachability extends to both
his on-stage and off-stage personas that engage even the most discerning
hip-hop fans and critics alike. The album Greatful, is the east coast MC’s homage to his most dedicated fans who have supported him for over a decade.
