“I’m not a one dimensional person, so I don’t make one dimensional music, ” Klassik explains. “I write about love, hate, drugs, streets and everything in between. As long as it’s real and from the heart people will love it. ”

Born in the late 80′s, the 24 year old Bronx native feels his perspective may be the formula to his success. This outlook has earned him features from various artist in the industry. “I sent them the music. They liked it… the rest is history.” Back in 2009, Klassik released his “Back for Revenge” mixtape hosted by DJ Diggz, DJ Lust and Evil Empire. This tape put his neighborhood into a frenzy. “That’s when my fans started to call me “ The Bronx Hiroshima”. It was a spin on the term “Bronx Bomber”

In following up to the popularity of “Back for Revenge” , Klassik released “Sleep When I Die”. Changing his local buzz to another platform. “It happened fast. That tape was everywhere! I started putting out videos and they’d end up on Worldstar the next day.” Shortly after the April 2010 debut of “Sleep When I Die “, Klassik was arrested and sentenced for a robbery charge stemming from an incident in 2009. To support his loyal fanbase, he released the “Free Klassik EP” availabile at: BuyFreeKlassikEP.com and iTunes. “ I had to let the fans know that it wasn’t over’. The fan support is undeniable. Fans took pictures with “Free Klassik” gear (shirts, stickers, chains) and flooded Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. - Source Magazine

Bio

Rapper Klassik Frescobar’s musical influence began in the early ‘90s in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica. After watching Puff Daddy’s ‘Mo money, Mo Problems’ video as a young boy, Klassik knew becoming a lyricist was a part of his destiny.

 

Inspired by artists like Ludacris,Klassik spent the majority of his junior and high school years spitting freestyles among other aspiring rappers. “I lost more than I won,” said Klassik, “but battling put me in a space to meet more rappers.”

 

In 2003, things shifted for the Bronx bred rapper. Klassik and a couple of his classmates went from battling to song writing and formed BFG. BFG or Born for Greatness helped to transform the budding artists into punch-line driven wordsmiths.

 

Things began to gain momentum for the young group with popular songs like “How You Feel,” “Make it Clap” and “How You Feel pt 2.” In 2006, Klassik enrolled in college in upstate New York putting a strain on the group ultimately leaving each of the members decided to pursue solo careers.

 

The break up did not deter Klassikfrom his dreams. He went on to be featured on records with artists such as Red Café, Corey Gunz, Curren$y, Ricky Blaze and more. From clothing line sponsorships to co-signs from A&Rs from Asylum Records, everything began to take shape.

 

After taking a short break, the young rapper has returned with a new mindset. “I know exactly what I want my music to be about now,” said Klassik.

 

With a goal to positively impact music, Klassik has taken matters into his owns with his “Creative Culture Society” brand, which houses artists in all artforms.. Klassik is also working on his forthcoming EP, “Pick Up Lines,” which will be released later on in 2015.
