DubCNN has broken countless artists over the past 10 years and we pride ourselves in keeping an ear to the street and bringing you the latest up and comers.
Today, we want to introduce you to a group of Anaheim representer Emcee Classiq – 1/3 of the Hip- Hop Trio “Brothers Next Door” and an undeniable new talent on the West.
Emcee Classiq is first and foremost a raw lyricist, a true student and lover of Hip-Hop as a culture. He’s honed his craft over recent years with mixtapes and live performances, including opening for some of Hip-Hop’s pioneers such as KRS- One, Murs, EPMD and Method Man. The exposure has placed him as a respected name in the Orange County scene and as such has built a team of talent around him to build his status. Classiq told Dubcnn: “There is not a lot of recognition for artist in the OC unless they’re mimicking whats on the radio. So I have a good creative team around me where we brainstorm ideas. We work hard at keeping it original and authentic.”
Earlier this year Classiq released “The Cosign” EP via his own website with 10 tracks that showcase his abilities from start to finish. Since it’s release he’s dropped videos for the tracks “Just Breathe” and “Holy Water” – both you can watch below – but in the last few weeks he dropped a record via CrownRockaSunday called “Back on My Bullshit” which really caught our ear.
The track, produced by Equal and featuring Tank G, is another example of why Classiq is “On The Come Up” – check it below and stay tuned to DubCNN for more.
