Mic Boyd just dropped the visuals for “They Don’t Know”, off Classified’s 2011 album Handshakes and Middle Fingers. The video features Class and Mic Boyd’s verses, as they weigh in on the effects of fame and the recurring issues of race in hip-hop. Once again, I find myself playing Classified’s songs on repeat. Check out the music video below. For more on Classified, check out his most recent interview with Chedo.
