    Vincentian Signs Major Deal In Canada


    From Left to Right: Wayne; Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles; and Klasiq at the Canadian Music Week Conference 2005.

    Staff Reporter 15.APR.05
    A Vincentian, Hansbe`Klasiq’ Bailey is being touted as Canada’s next hip-hop superstar following his signing a record deal with Kick Ass Records.

    Klasiq, who hails from Calder, is currently in the studio putting his finishing touches to the songs that will be sure to top the charts very soon.

    As a rapper during almost ten years, Klasiq has recorded with the likes of Kevin Lyttle, and has opened for Sean Paul, Beenie Man and Morgan Heritage. His credentials and past performances detail how truly talented this artist is. Klasiq’s music is of many described as at times happy, angry, raw, and most importantly, reflects life’s many realistic situations.

    His record label says that “not only will his beats and melodies inspire the current hip-hop industry, but he is expected to be a major force in the culture of rap music all over the world.” The label lauds “his charismatic and smooth vocal stylings are sure to captivate those interested in Hip-Hop, especially Rap and R&B.”

    The Kick Ass Music Group is a Canadian-based company with extreme promise. After the constant promotion and development of SUNI Clay, Canada’s current hip hop star, and working with Juno nominated producers, such as Marcus Kane and Bad Boy producer Lac-Keez-Shira, they have now linked with Hansbe Klasiq Bailey. Kick Ass Records is currently distributed by Universal Records and DEP, and is dedicated in the development of fresh urban talent for upcoming projects.
