Klassik - Intelligent hip hop for fans of OutKast, QTip, The Roots

Milwaukee hip hop artist Klassik may seem like a newcomer, but he's a long-time veteran and well-respected MC in the local scene making his first foray onto the national consciousness with an album that is quite far beyond the average; be it mixtape or official release. Appropriately called "In The Making", this is very intelligent hip hop through and through, more QTip, OutKast, The Roots and A Tribe Called Quest than Odd Future or 50 Cent. His new single "Inner Me/Enemy" exemplifies the strong jazz influence and passionate rhyming heard throughout this self-produced album. The production is nothing short of stellar - and that's what's required these days.

The track is up for purchase at Klassik's Bandcamp page. More info on Klassik can be found on his Facebook.
