After notching six hits on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 since 2009, rapper Classified has his sights set south of the border. The Nova Scotia-based MC signed with Atlantic Records in March and is on the verge of scoring his first Mainstream Top 40 hit with "Inner Ninja," featuring David Myles (up 24% in plays at the format, according to Nielsen BDS). The cut, which hit No. 5 on the Canadian Hot 100 in March, will be featured on his self-titled Halflife/Atlantic debut album, due later this year.
