Classified goes major

The first person to utilize the phrase "overnight success" gets it

After more than a decade of beatmaking and rhyme-throwing out of his home base of Enfield, hip-hop artist Classified has signed a deal with Sony, with his major label debut dropping in March of next year.

"“It’s hard to ignore the success of Classified and his tireless approach to building his career the old fashioned way—hitting the streets, touring from Halifax to Victoria and all points in between. Sony Music is extremely excited about partnering with Classified and advancing his career,” said A&R dude Dave Harris in a statement.

Keep your eyes on this space for words on the deal from the man himself.
