Classified ft. Mic Boyd & DJ IV - Familiar

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Classified
Album:

Is it just me, or does the latest single from Classified sound a little bit… Familiar. But totally new, at the same time? The follow-up to November’s Inner Ninja, the latest release off the North of the Border vet’s self-titled studio album is an invigorating mix of the retro and the progressive. Over his own synth-fortified boom-bap production, featuring cuts by DJ IV, the Nova Scotian rhymesayer challenges his peers in the game to break out of the stale status quo and get back to making classic jams. Mic Boyd, Class’ younger brother, assists on the guest tip, and an unknown auteur directs the joint’s minimal, stylish official visuals. For more, check out Classified (the album) when it drops January 22 via Half Life Records/Universal Canada.
