He ain’t no Slim Shady, but he is a white rapper… And truth be told, I like this guy a lot more!
Last week I had the opportunity to see him live in concert, post win.
He had just won the Juno Award for “Rap Recording of the Year”
The singer, who’s catchy song “Inner Ninja” cemented the win, was on fire that night! Engaging and lively, he had the crowd going buck wild during the 1 hour performance.
As a Maritime boy, Classified brought the excitement and positive spirit of the east coast right on to the stage.
As he wrapped his performance, I knew I had to meet him.
So without a solid plan on how, I just decided to stroll backstage.
As I wove through the gauntlet of security personal, I even surprised myself when nobody decided to stop me.
I suppose a ‘fancy’ boy decked out in polka dots was not ‘classified’ as a threat to the artist.
Backstage as I visually realized I was out of my element, I thought it best to find Classified, snap a pic and high tail it out of dodge!
My eyes darted around and I had found my escape out of the fenced compound. As I ran for what I thought was a hole in the fence I was brought to a screeching halt for 1 more photo-op.
Famed Rapper Maestro Fresh Wes!
It was a whirlwind of excitement and a great performance that night in the ‘Gonna Get Loud’ tent!
Thanks boys for taking the time for a few photos, not sticking your henchmen on me and letting my ‘backbone slide’!
