Multiplatinum hit maker and Halifax native Classified releases his fifteenth studio album Greatful today via Half Life Records/Universal Music Canada. Staying true to the inventive style that made his self-titled career-defining album a Gold-certified success in 2013, the rapper showcases his talent for layering memorable beats and melodies with conscious, thought provoking wordplay.

The album sees the charismatic rapper returning to his deep rooted hip hop background with the single “Filthy”, which features pioneer DJ Premier and draws inspiration from ‘90s cyber hip hop. The diverse album includes songs like “No Pressure”, where Classified teams up with icon Snoop Dogg to create a wild feel-good anthem that uniquely weaves the two rappers styles of flow, and “Noah’s Arc”, a song featuring Saukrates that layers a feathery piano melody with emotionally charged lyrics.

Greatful showcases Classified elevating his game while keeping the trademark style and sound that has engaged critics and hip hop fans alike. Greatful was produced by Classified and recorded at Halflife Studios in Enfield, Nova Scotia.  The album consists of 16 tracks and collaborations featuring Snoop Dogg, David Myles, Ria Mae, DJ Premier and more available via iTunes.
