[Video] Klassik: “Boogie”

Avant-garde hip-hop artist Klassik has been making moves in his native Milwaukee for some time now, establishing a uniquely soulful, creative musical aesthetics that mirrors his locale and earned him the distinction as Wisconsin Area Music Industry’s 2013 Hip Hop Artist of the Year. Today, we get his video for the lead single, “Boogie”, off his upcoming project release for Young Rising Phenom, due out December 13. The track uses a Michael Jackson sample of “Blame it on the Boogie” for a funk-filled 80s-esque dancey hip-hop number that will have you tapping your feet and bobbing your head. It’s fun watching this creative new breed of artists pull from so many other genres to create hip-hop music these days and the saxophone-playing Klassik may be doing so better than most right now. Check out the video for “Boogie”, below.
