  To share this release: http://bit.ly/WxQrTP            (Toronto, ON – 11 January 2013) – On January 22nd, acclaimed East-Coast rapper Classified returns with the release of his self-titled LP via Half Life Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading Music Company.  Led by the hit single “Inner Ninja”, Classified consists of 12 powerful tracks, including collaborations with Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon and Canada’s own Kardinal Offishall.   Classified is a testament to the trials and tribulations of a life spent in the studio, and on the road. “I try and write as if you’re sitting in a room with me and we’re having a conversation,” Classified says. “I never got into this to be famous, but to get my point across, be honest and make real music.”   Beginning tomorrow, Classified will be engaging his fans in an opportunity to participate in the ultimate experience with the rapper. Transmissions will be broadcast daily at www.classifiedofficial.com revealing clues that will eventually lead to the exciting conclusion. Classified, born Luke Boyd, has arrived at the peak of his creativity. After selling over 100,000 records, gaining a combined 18 nominations and 8 wins at the MuchMusic Video Awards, Juno Awards and East Coast Music Awards Classified is riding his career-best momentum across the twelve tracks of his new disc.
