Enfield, NS – I’ve interviewed Classified many times over the past few years and for various different mediums including my radio show and my DVD series. His hard work and dedication has been evident since day 1 and his success is nothing close to an overnight feat. It’s the fact that he continued to develop and dedicate himself to self-improvement and because has the drive to get himself out there. He has been a constant icon in Canada for fans of hip-hop music and an artist that sets the bar higher every time he releases a project. With that being said, another interview was bound to happen and it’s been in the making since the first time we linked in Halifax for Hold It Down DVD Volume 2 [Editor's note: Shameless plug].
Since then, and by then I mean back in 2005, I have watched Classified constantly tour Canada while maintaining the ability to release new material without too much time passing in between projects. He maintains his relevance in the scene and his tours seem to get bigger and further reaching with each project that passes, this time releasing through Sony. He handles his business, handles his own production and has great support through his HalfLife team. His accolades, discography and overall contributions to the scene already puts him up there with the most notable names in Canadian hip-hop history… and he still has a lot left to offer.
