Classified returns today with the visual for ‘Rap Shit’ featuring Dax and Snak The Ripper.
A year and change after releasing his last full length album,Â Tomorrow Could Be The Day Things Change,Â JUNO Award winning, multi-platinum Canadian hip-hop artist and producerÂ ClassifiedÂ is readying a new project.Â Â Today, he gave a hint of whatâ€™s to come by going back to basics on some â€œRap Shitâ€ with Dax and Snak The Ripper.
The â€œSuper Nova Scotianâ€ was recently nominated for another JUNO Award for his â€œPowerlessâ€ video (which was directed by Andrew Hines) and also just wrapped his highly-praised, national headlining Canadian Classic Tour, which saw him take over venues across the country, performing tracks old and new for legions of fans. As one of the most influential hip-hop artists in Canada with over 100 million streams globally, the multiple JUNO Award winner has a combined 24 nominations and 8 wins between the MuchMusic Video Awards, JUNO Awards, and East Coast Music Awards.
â€œI wanted to take this one back to where it all started. When I was 15 and started rapping, we use to shoot homemade videos and there is only one place in Enfield that doesnâ€™t look like old country town–theÂ trainÂ bridge (where you smoked your first joint.. drank your first beer, brought your first girlfriend)â€ Classified quipped to Complex Canada.Â Â â€œI tried shooting video’s here when I was a kid and wanted to take it back to the same place…… then got Dax to shoot where he’s at.Â Â Snak shot in his hometown and my brother put all the footage together and tripped it out!â€
