Since we all need a little “Inspiration” in our lives, Classified has decided to grace us with a visual for perhaps the most uplifting cut from his underrated Self-Explanatory album. The song and complimentary video tell the tale of Class passing along a beat over the Web to an aspiring rapper name Phil LaCroix, hoping to hear back after he had laced it. A few months later, the multi-faceted Maple Leaf producer/rapper got an e-mail from the rapper’s friend, who delivered the unfortunate news Phil had died in a car crash.
Eerie, yet moving, this amazing song is a reminder of how influential the fingerprints we leave in people’s lives can be, whether we know it or not. Plus, it’s an honest testament to how inspirational music can be for your life.

And, if you’re still not sold on Class, watch this video of him preforming “Beatin’ It,” — one of the highlights from his catalogue — live from Halifax.
Can you make beats and rap to them simultaneously?
