Hip Hop ain't dead, its up North with Class

The writers of Straight Goods got the chance to see one of our favorite Canadian Hip Hop MC-Producers; Classified at his McMaster University show on Friday. London, Ontario Hip Hop duo Two Crown King did a nice job opening up for Classified. I just checked out their Myspace and I liked what I heard, give a listen: http://www.myspace.com/twocrownking. After Two Crown King's set finished, Classified came out from backstage and blew the show out of the water, playing a nice balance of new stuff off his 09 release Self Explanatory, and managing to fit in all of his classics.

With the Vancouver Olympics fast approaching, Canadians are feeling more patriotic by the day and Class's song Oh-Canada off Self Explanatory fits the mood perfectly:

Off the same album, Quit While You're Ahead features some a few of the longtime Canadian hip hop heavyweights Choclair, Maestro Fresh-Wes and Moka Only
