Editors’ Notes As Nova Scotia rap veteran Classified has crossed over into the realms of pop, rock, and country, he’s never lost the connection to his boom-bap roots. His 16th album, Tomorrow Could Be the Day Things Change, is positively steeped in old-school flavor: “Damn Right” sports the heavy-duty groove of a ’90s rap-metal jam, while “Super Nova Scotian” is a Wu-Tang-styled posse cut that rallies an all-star procession of Maritimes rap royalty, including Skratch Bastid and Pat Stay. (And no points for guessing the inspiration behind “Beastie Boy.”) But the Tory Lanez-assisted trap ballad "Cold Love" reaffirms Classified’s flair for au courant collaborations, and on the somber devotional “Powerless,” he turns his eye to current events, weaving a vivid, unflinching narrative about the plight of Indigenous women in Canada.
