Juno Award winning and multi platinum, Halifax based hip hop artist Classified is pleased to release his new single “No Pressure” featuring Snoop Dogg from his upcoming album, GREATFUL. The upbeat and elevating track has now premiered for the public on Billboard. The multidimensional single is layered with piano, a booming bass line, and witty, catchy wordplay.
Classified’s new record is set to release January 15 via HalfLife Records / Black Box. GREATFUL was self-produced by Classified and recorded at the Halflife Studios in Enfield, Nova Scotia. The album consists of 16 tracks and collaborations featuring Snoop Dogg, David Myles, Ria Ma, DJ Premier and more. Fans who pre-order GREATFUL will receive two album tracks – “Filthy” and “No Pressure” – leading up to release.
Classified tells Billboard, "I found the sample I used in this song from an artist out of Nova Scotia. As soon as I heard it, I made the beat and started writing. I wanted to make a song that appealed to people from different walks of life..whether you’re a hip hop head, a guy who goes to work everyday, or a college student working through school. We all deal with different pressures in life and all have different ways of dealing with them.
With the east coast/west coast theme in the chorus I wanted someone from the west coast on the record to rep that side. Who better then the legend himself, Snoop Dogg. We reached out when he was in Nova Scotia shooting Trailer Park Boys and we made it happen!"
