How Classic Manage To Stand Out In The Music Industry



How Classic Manage To Stand Out In The Music Industry

Classic is an Hip Hop artist and Songwriter, born in Muskegon MI. Grew up in a military family spending his childhood numerous states in the United States while also growing up in Berlin Germany. Classic got his name from his love of classical music from the renaissance period, he has an old school style flow with the ability to switch up his style while still maintaining the substance that more traditional hip-hop listeners enjoy over newer sounding hip-hop. He first started to rap after his mother got him into music at an early age. He always have an ear for good sound.

“My mother was into fashion, music and overall life. As time evolved we evolved with it. I just took what styles I liked and thought represented parts of my personality best. Rather than being riding the beat like a southern artist, to switching up to a west coast style, but centering my style in what influenced me most and that’s the early 90’s east coast style. I have all those elements in my style today where I’m capable to jump on multiple sounds and styles being that I let the beat tell the story that way I’m able to leave my signature on the track.”

The recent rise of groups like Griselda’s artist, Westside GunnBenny the Butcher, and Conway standout as his favorite artist up to date. Also including the likes of Royce Da 5’9“, Da BabyMigosEminemJ Cole and Kendrick Lamar. Aside from his rhyming skills and undeniable talent, Classic has underwent an evolution taking what he’s experienced in his earlier start in hip-hop and combining it with where we all are currently in time. Going under the radar for most of the earlier part of his career, he has reemerged a force.

However his career in music would get a later start being that he was a pretty decent high school basketball player and would focus a lot of his time on sports. Attending Kansas Wesleyan University by the end of 2004 he wanted to focus on music full time. Everything started for me when our family relocated to Phoenix AZ in 2008 where he pushed mixtapes out of his car and ran the local scene doing shows. He ran into Juice a “Black Wall Street.” Artist for The Game’s group. Who enjoyed one of his mixtapes and started to do music with him.

“I started making moves rather quickly opening up for DJ Quik and Kurupt out in Scottsdale AZ at a Sean Healy event, shows my grind and networking skills, I wasn’t from the Phoenix area but I met all the right people and in a short time I grew faster than previous years before that.” With mixtapes “Phoenix New Sun 3.” being sold from the trunk of his car back then making very little use of the internet this tape saw only 276 plays on datpiff. In February 2008 Phoenix New Sun 4 hosted by Juice of Black Wall Street in 2009 received over 200 downloads and 442 plays. “The Michigan Wolverine.”

In 2011 featured Willie The Kid who at the time was on D.J. Drama’s label received 527 only releasing via Bandcamp. “We got a track called, “Spartans & Wolverines.” which was special to me being that Willie is still currently the biggest artist in Western Michigan.” In November 2012 “No Cover.” arguably one of my top projects was released by DJ Gallo of Coast to Coast Mixtapes. The tape received 50,000 plays and sponsored on datpiff.

The Future of Sports: Aris Persidis of GNB and Tobi Lufadeju of NextPlayerON Talk On The New Emerging Technologies That Are Disrupting The World Of Sports



New technologies have changed the way we engage in and watch sports. Sensors, Wearable Tech, Video Assistant Referees (VAR), and Instant Replay, are examples of new technologies that have changed the way we play and watch sports. In this interview series called, “The Future of Sports; New Emerging Technologies That Are Disrupting The World Of Sports,” we are talking to sports leaders, athletes, sports tech experts, and sports equipment companies who can talk about the new technologies that are reshaping the sports world

Enter in disruptors – Aris Persidis of GridNewsBureau (GNB) and Tobi Lufadeju of NextPlayerON. GNB and NPO announced their collaboration deal in esports engagement in 2021 as well as a pledge to help counteract a rise in trolls and hate into the esport gaming experience.

Aris Persidis

Aris Persidis is a tech entrepreneur with multiple start-ups, growths and exits and chairs the Board of GNB. He focuses on AI and its applications in different areas, including media/entertainment. In 2020, he was included as one of the world’s top 50 futurists by the Abundant World Institute, in collaboration with Alvin Toffler’s Estate (author of the now-classic Future Shock).

Tobi Lufadeju

Tobi Lufadeju is a serial entrepreneur and an accomplished information technology leader with over 18 years of experience developing innovative technical solutions, leading tech teams, and creating strategies to drive business and technology alignment. His focus has since transitioned to product, business, and marketing strategy as the COO of NextPlayerON.

“As a co-founder and COO of NextPlayerON – we focus on leveraging esports to create an ecosystem that empowers communities, educates students, and offers a path to generating income as a professional gamer. And our strategic partnership with GNB allows this vision to come full blossom” , states Tobi Lufadeju.

Through NextPlayerON, the opportunity to impact the world is real. Providing students with scholarships, schools with better student engagement, children with better life choices, and new revenue sources serves as true impact.

“This idea of innovation in how we experience sports is what drives me. It is also what drives our powerful deal with the great folks at NPO.” , states Aris Persidis.

 GNB has announced a wonderful deal with NexPlayerON in the esports vertical. Based on the idea of innovation in how we experience sports is what drives this partnership. Especially the NPO angle that shows how esports properly done can be the great equalizer among young people who may not be physically gifted for a live sport.

“The specific focus of our work with NPO is to use GNB’s content engagement platform to bring actual real-time engagement to the e-sport platform. Viewers and participants in esports only have old-style social media to engage/comment. This brings trolls and hate into the experience. We want to change all that. Showcasing the emotional angle and intensity of taking part in top flight esports is as much part of the narrative as the outcome. We are very excited about that.” states Persidis.
