About this Artist

Klassy was a neighborhood star before her junior year of high school. The Echo Park native had built a reputation as a fearsome emcee, recording songs while her peers were cramming for finals, and finding her signature flow while other young artists followed the trends. In her senior year of High School, Klassy made a show-stealing appearance on Bambu's "Party Worker" album, and shortly after, took herself off the radar to focus on her other artistic passion -- tattoo. Just as quickly as her name circulated through the neighborhood back in High School, her work on the tattoo scene swiftly spread, leading to her working as a full-time tattoo artist. Then in 2017, seemingly out of nowhere, Klassy popped back up to lend her talents to the powerful hit song "US" from labelmate Ruby Ibarra's debut "Circa91."

From the heart of Historic Filipinotown in Echo Park, Klassy has kept busy balancing her tattooing with music, releasing her first Beatrock Music project “Dirty Cortez” in 2019. The 20-minute EP is loaded with jazzy, boom bap heavy production by OJ The Producer, Fatgums, Otayo Dubb, and Exile -- keeping Klassy skating over the melodies with her trademark laid back wordplay. Through the ups and downs of the pandemic years, Fatgums and Klassy teamed up again to complete her debut full-length album “Good Seeds”. Released 2023, “Good Seeds” displays the evolution of Klassy as a truly masterful lyricist and songwriter. Fans can also hear her precocious raps on “The Ashtray Sessions” EP, which features recordings from 2012 when Klassy was a young high school student. With an amazing live performance to match her rhythmic cadence, Klassy continues to carry on the emcee craft in its truest form.
