Halifax rapper Classified fills Atlantic Canada House Olympic venue

Classified sports his red and white.

No, the show was not a secret. Halifax rapper 'Classified' performed at Atlantic Canada House this evening on Granville Island.

Sources told me only four hundred people would be accepted into the venue, but a lineup containing nearly six hundred eager fans trailed along the next block.

Could this be because Classified shows so much Canadian pride in his recent music video for 'Oh...Canada' from his album 'Self Explanatory' (watch below)?

'Class' is becoming a pretty big star considering this performance was scarcely advertised aside from Facebook groups. Classified recorded his newest album with Sony Music Entertainment Canada after nearly ten years of independent production.
