“ForeverWhatever” (listen/download)

Beloved 414 artist Klassik has once again raised the bar as it pertains to music videos. Last month, he dropped another set of visuals off of his award winning album, In The Making. The song he chose to give physical form to was “ForeverWhatever.” The record was produced by Klassik himself. It is a piano guided number with a graceful tone and excellent content. The following description was shared in relation to the single: the song “embodies many of the themes of In The Making, such as strong character, positivity, and perseverance triumphing over fads and gimmicks that diminishes the appreciation for the musical talent of indie artists like Klassik. The hook and title of the song explains that he’s been waiting for what seems to be forever to be heard!  The process of completing the album presented numerous obstacles and its success has gotten the proverbial monkey off Klassik’s back. He gives a signal of intent to finish the song by rapping ‘realize I won’t stop til everybody in here knows my name!'” For the video, Klassik linked back up with  Xavier Ruffin of Dopamine Production LLC. Readers can lay their eyes on the flick after the break.

Milwaukee based artist Klassik released his much awaited album In The Making yesterday (9/25). The album boasts 17 fresh songs, guest appearances from some of Milwaukee’s other elite emcees like ¡OYE!, and esteemed production. Here is a little more info about the project: “Klassik’s goal with this album was to create a new genre of music. Boxing him into one particular genre wouldn’t do his expressions justice. He doesn’t settle in his artistic innovation. The genres and influences on In The Making come from musical legends of all realms including: Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, De La Soul, Kanye West, and Outkast. All of the songs written and produced by Klassik are completely original work. This project has come to life over the last three years as the artist has built a reputation for his eclectic work on numerous features and collaborations with major artists in the Milwaukee music scene.
