I love this song because of the tidbits into Classified’s life it gives. “DDD” is both a history of the artist and also his family and their hometown, as it showcases a lot of little-known facts about his hometown and Classified’s childhood. For example, his grandfather helped build his neighborhood with a friend. On top of that, Classified’s father built his family’s first two houses in the same neighborhood. Plus, the song is just lyrically-impressive and beautiful, backed by a great instrumental. Underneath the history lesson, we get a dive into some emotions that Classified felt “when holding a grudge” and how he’s using his history to forgive those who’ve “done him wrong, but without having to forget it.”
Overall, it’s one that I recommend anyone checking out–especially if you want a song that showcases lyrics for days as well as a bit of background as to why the artist is the way they are. Check it out below and support dope music in all its forms.
