DOWNLOAD | Greatful – Classified
Canadian-based Classified returns to Hip-Hop Kings with the release of his latest album “Greatful”. I loved the “Handshakes and Middle Fingers” album which Classified released in 2011, and Greatful follows up in excellent fashion via Halflife Records. We posted the single “Filthy” featuring DJ Premier, and Classified also teamed up with Snoop Dogg for the single “No Pressure” in the build up to the album release. Classified has collaborated with the likes of Slug (Atmosphere), Snak The Rapper and Mike Boyd, with production being completely handled by Classified himself.

Towards the end of 2011 I was lucky enough to get some interview time with Canadian Hip-Hop artist Classified. After the release of Handshakes and Middle Fingers, I spoke to Classified about his favourite tracks on the album, his label and distribution situation, his live performances and plans for touring the U.K and Europe amongst other things. Classified’s Handshakes and Middle Fingers can be bought using the download link above (please support) and fans may have seen the new video which is featured at the start of this interview with Joe Budden for their collaboration track “Unusual”.

As Canadian Hip-Hop artist released his latest album “Handshakes and Middle Fingers” in the second half of 2010, the Joe Budden featured track “Unusual” was highlighted as one of the fans’ favourites from the album.

Classified has also released a new mixtape (available from Hip-Hop Kings tomorrow) and I will be sharing the exclusive interview in the next few days that we conducted towards the end of 2012.
