I got into Canadian emcee Classified like 7 or 8 years ago. I really liked his music, and then I didn’t hear anything from him for about 7 or 8 years (Even though he’s been consistently putting out music). Then today came. I just checked out his new (April 2009) album Self Explanatory and it’s the best thing I’ve heard from him in about 7 or 8 years… But seriously, it’s really good.
Shit (I’m gonna start using this word more. Way too many damns and fucks in my vocabulary.), the album has some sick beats. Not sick on some mindblowing “I’ve never heard anything like this before”, but sick on some “damn, this makes perfect sense”. Production reminds me of Premier mixed with Ant (of Atmosphere). Really simple, but so smooth. Definitely some good shit for heads who aren’t impressed with bells, whistles, and shiny objects.
