On August 6th, Nova Scotian rapper Classified released his new single “Pick Your Poison,” along with the music video. The track and video take a look at vices and addictions in everyday life, and it was co-directed by Classified (Luke Boyd).
A talent with multiple platinum hits, Boyd often writes and reflects upon the current world around him—such as songs like “It’s Hard to Understand,” “Powerless,” and now “Pick Your Poison.” His last release, “Good News,” came out at a time where we really needed help to look on the bright side. It peaked at #23 on Canadian Top 40 radio charts and has so far been streamed more than 3.5 million times. Classified’s upcoming Time EP is due out later this year.
I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
