Classified pays homage to “Beastie Boys” in new Harv Glazer-directed video

Our weekly segment The Weekly Eight returns with the latest visual release from producer and recording artist, Classified.

The video pays homage to legendary 80’s/90’s NYC rap trio, Beastie Boys, comprised of Michael “Mike D” Diamond, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz, and Adam “MCA” Yauch, who passed away May 4, 2012. The “Beastie Boys” video was released in support of Class’ new project, Tomorrow Could Be the Day Things Change, his sixteenth album and fifth major release.

Classified has released a video for almost every song on the album. The last two we posted late 2018 were also directed by Harv Glazer including “10 Years,” and “Legal Marijuana.”

The Enfield, NS-born star was recently nominated for Video of the Year at the 2019 JUNO Awards with director Andrew Hines for their epic work on the video for “Powerless.”


  • Artist/Group: Enfield, Nova Scotia-born producer and recording artist, Luke Boyd (aka Classified), representing HalfLife Records.
  • Submission: The new Harv Glazer-directed video for the self-produced single, “Beastie Boys.” The song is featured on Classified latest’s studio project and fifth major release, Tomorrow Could Be the Day Things Change.
  • Streaming Links: The video was posted to YouTube on Jan. 30, 2019. You can find the single and Tomorrow Could Be The Day Things Change on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify.

10 Years: Classified drops new visuals in support of latest album


Submission Sundays was a segment we introduced in 2018 to show love to the hundreds of artists and groups that submit new material to us weekly. The segment also gave us a chance to show love to people who weren’t already receiving regular coverage on HipHopCanada, and gave them a chance to connect with our viewers.

Towards the end of the year, we relaunched Submission Sundays as The Weekly Eight, with the same objective to help artists grow.

Each week, we’ll select 8 new submissions and feature them on our homepage for at least a 24 hour period.

To be considered for The Weekly Eight segment, please submit your content using our Submission Form. International submissions are welcome.

Please note, due to the volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to respond to each submission directly. Submissions with missing information will be deleted.

A summary of this week’s selections:
