I only just stumbled upon this video, so it's probably been out for a minute. The homie Classified's new anthem, 'Oh Canada', got me already feeling proud and I ain't even moved there yet.
The video is cool as fuck; literally. Oh and check for the cameo from Jim Lahey off of 'Trailer Park Boys'. CLASSIC. Only Class could pull that one off (pause).
Peep the video after the jump, and the behind the scenes footage too.
Behind The Scenes
So Classified has always been one of my favourite artists, since my homies in Toronto put me into his shit back in 2004.
This joint, 'Beatin' It', which is from his last album 'Hitch Hikin' Music', is one of the most creative moments in Hip Hop this decade, hands down. The fact that he knocks out a beat so fucking dope and then go out on some conversational concept shit is a credit to the man.
But as ill as the recorded version is, check what dude does to it live. About 4 minutes in is where the goosebumps start...
The latest single off the homie Class' latest album is 'Quit While You're Ahead' with an all Canadian line up of Maestro Fresh Wes, Choclair and Moka Only. Dope, dope track.
Here's the video for Classified's new single, 'Up All Night'. DOPE studio. So pissed I missed when he came to MEL.
Had to post this one. Even though Class only makes a small appearance, fans will appreciate. Most of us here at The Movement Fam are fans of Canada's Classified, so his cameo on this joint was something I was keen on peeping while waiting for his new album to drop.
I don't know much about the song itself, which really isn't that dope, so check the blurb below I ripped from another blog. Also, check out Classified's MySpace to hear his new single 'Anybody Listening?' off the album 'Self Explanatory' (which drops April 7th), which is actually fresh.
"My two favorite artists of early 2009 - Josh Martinez and Classified - just dropped their visual to the second single off Josh’s ultra-magnetic album The World Famous Sex Buffet. Featuring Skratch Bastid along for the ride, “Going Back To Hali” is a potent ode to their home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia, which is somewhere in Canada where they probably smoke reeeally good. Either way, it’s nice to see artists lighten up and actually have fun in their music videos."
