St.Louis, MO Based Hip Hop Artist, Classic has released his debut full length album, "Workaholic" in conjunction with Treehouse District and Potent Productions. "Rise and Grind" and "I Ride" are the first singles to to be promoted to radio. "I Ride" will also be featured on upcoming Indie Anthems Compilation by WiFi PR Group. The Indie Anthems Compilation is an on-going series that will feature some of the best up and coming unsigned and independent artists worldwide.

Dateline: Los Angeles, California, Jan.10th, 2013 –St. Louis Hip Hop Artist, Classic has released his debut mixtape, "Workaholic". The track " I Ride" will be also be featured on the upcoming Compilation, "Indie Anthems". The compilation, which is produced by the WiFiPR Group to showcase new artists they have recently signed to their client roster, will come out as digital release only and be distributed at upcoming music industry events including SXSW in Austin, TX in March.

Classic is a solo artist born as Gabriel Brownlee, has been gaining momentum as an upcoming Hip Hop Artists in both the local St. Louis music and mixtape community. He recently landed a featured interview on the popular hip hop magazine WWS and is gaining momentum with Workaholic. Workaholic is available as a free download on the popular online mixtape community, datpiff.com. It's rising popularity has landed him over 25,000 views and streams combined and nearly 7,000 downloads in just two months.

The attention from Workaholic has also earned him a nod of recognition and praise from Interscope Hip Hop Recording Artist, Rosco Dash. " Getting a shout out from Roscoe Dash for Workaholic and just the fact that someone in the Industry is giving recognition to the team, I believe is a great marker for what direction we are headed," commented Classic. His current attention is "focused on reaching out to new listeners and keeping a constant flow of material going to the public to stay relevant."

Classic describes his style of music as mix of DMX, T.I. Big Sean, Outkast, Nas and fellow St, Louis rapper, Nelly. His lyrical style reflects a street-wise hustler and a humble underdog who is quick to show his talent instead of bragging about it, especially with tracks like "Rise and Grind" and "Hustlers Mind". When asked about what has influenced his music he stated that most of his best song writing has been influenced by Doubt and being an underdog. "Where I'm from everyone thinks they're an expert at everything, so they're quick to tell you what you cant do. So your better off just showing your talent at its best so there's no room to hate. After all, I am from 'The Show Me State', so I make sure to incorporate that into my writing and song making process to make sure every song is to its fullest potential."

Musically he is often compared to B.O.B., NElly, Tech9ine, and T.I which is a high honor to him, considering they are also his main influences musically speaking.

Classic plans to continue recording music as a solo artist and growing his buzz into national markets, including Austin at the upcoming SXSW Music Festival where he will be featured on a Compilation that will be passed to music industry veterans and media contacts exclusively.

Classic has recently signed with (Wifi PR Group) as a client. Company Info: WiFi PR Group, Los Angeles, CA. http://www.wifiprgroup.com
