Jidenna Featuring Roman GianArthur – Classic Man Review
Wisconsin-born rapper, Jidenna Theodore Mobisson, giving his best shot in promoting the Wonderland Records with his uber-catchy, “Classic Man”, has already won 2015. The song has just got its T.I. remix, and today it is blessed by the guest appearance of none other than Kendrick Lamar.
A self-dubbed dandy, Jidenna has seamlessly created a music video that quenched the thirst of hip hop fans that are in search for something more interesting other than the “party and bullshit” style. Jidenna exploded onto airwaves with “Classic Man” in February, 2015.
Featuring Roman Gian Arthur and a special appearance by Janelle Monae, the video is shot by Alan Ferguson. With its anthem like appeal and memorable melodic verses, the song grabs your ears and touches your heart while getting you on your feet. An ultimate, go-for-the-gut pop has set a new standard for elegance and class and addressed to the despondent need for community-building in the wake of rampant police brutality.
“Classic Man” will appear as the leading track on the Wonderland Records’ upcoming the Eephus EP. It has already begun summer-radio domination, a track that rejoices the good manners, elegant dressing, and taking care of your business. Apparently, it’s a distinctive take on hip hop culture.
The Eephus due out on August 14, 2015 but the remix is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
