In his own words, Classified expresses his gratitude for working with a legend like Masta Ace, stating, "Getting to work with a legend on this song has been an honor. Been listening to Masta Ace for 30 years now and it was great to get him on this song. When I made the beat, I knew I wanted something with some good energy to it, and left space for a cool flow on it. And then lyrically I just wanted to go in with clever rhymes and flows, and make sure to keep that energy on the vocals that the beat has".

Classified's forthcoming 19th studio album, "Luke’s View," is set to release via HalfLife Records & Big Story Entertainment on April 26th. The album promises a diverse array of tracks, including the reflective "All Wrong," the soul-searching "Wonder," and the powerful societal commentary of "People."

His 2013 self-titled release achieved widespread acclaim, debuting at No. 1 on the Canadian Nielsen SoundScan Chart and attaining 2x Platinum certification, with hit singles like "Inner Ninja" and "3 Foot Tall" dominating the charts. In 2021, Classified took a creative turn with his acoustic album, "Retrospected," which garnered critical acclaim and led to a sold-out 40-date tour across Canada.

Amassing over 250 million global streams and earning multiple JUNO Awards, Classified's influence in the hip-hop landscape remains unparalleled. With a legacy of innovation and artistic excellence, Classified continues to captivate audiences worldwide with his compelling storytelling and undeniable talent.
