Classified ft. Kardinal Offishall & Madchild - Look Up (Signs)

Posted 3 years ago

I’m not a big believer in Astrology, but sometimes the sign simply fits. Take Classified, whose realness, charisma and constant striving to top himself are hallmarks of the Sagittarian personality. A freshly-selected single off the Nova Scotian rapper and producer’s latest studio album, Look Up (The Signs) finds him hooking up with a couple fellow Canadian lyricists who, likewise, epitomize their respective signs. Kardinal Offishall, a Taurus, takes the bull by the horns, showcasing his self-assurance and his love for life’s finer things on verse one, and Swollen Member Mad Child puts his Libran creativity and collaborative spirit to use on the final verse. Backed by Class’ own driving, rock-infused production, this single can be found (along with previous features Familiar and Inner Ninja) on his self-titled LP, out now via Half Life/Universal.
