too big for hidden gem: Classified *Canadian hip-hop

March 31st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

With 90’000+ facebook fans and a national tour in Canada, Classified is quickly becoming one of the most popular Canadian hip-hop acts. I’m not from Canada but I have a lot of respect for rappers like K-Os, Shad, Classified and iSH because they have a lot more work to put in to get attention than an American artist and even a UK artist in my opinion.

Rather than tell you about Classified, when you can check out his wikipedia, I will give you my 3 favorites from him which show his production skills and how he has this unique alternative hip-hop style that’s just as good if not better than Atmosphere. These 3 songs are off Classified’s latest album, Handshakes and Middle Fingers.
Classified – That Ain’t Classy (MUST DL)
Classified – Maybe Its Just Me f. Brother Ali (flute beat)
Classified – The Day Doesn’t Die
Follow Classified on twitter to find out if he’s coming to a city near you.

Bonus: Going with the theme of Canadian hip-hop, thought I would drop a Shad track for your listening pleasure. This is off Shad’s last album, TSOL, released last year. If your ever having a rough day, listen to this song.
Shad – Keep Shining
