In the span of two decades, Classified has gone from a well-kept secret in Eastern Canada to a national treasure. As the Juno-winning rapper readies the release of Greatful, his 15th (!!!) studio album, we’ve got an exclusive look at his latest visual, featuring another Canadian OG, Saukrates.
In the music video for “Noah’s Arc,” Classified spits contemplative bars on a rainy night, accompanied by a sombre piano loop and a powerful hook from Big Sox.
"This is one of my favourite songs on the album,” Classified told Complex via email. “It's basically me talking about society, and life, and thinking out loud with it. It’s super chill, and I just wanted to talk some real shit.”
Watch the video for “Noah’s Arc,” featuring Saukrates, above. Classified’s new album, Greatful, drops January 15th via Half Life Records/Universal Music Canada. Greatful includes guest appearances by Snoop Dogg, DJ Premier, David Myles, and more. Pre-order it here.
