Here's more interesting things in songs and lyrics tied to Classified or about the 2000s in general.

We love all kinds of music here and we appreciate a song that tells a story and connects with listeners on a personal level. “Used To Be” by Classified is one such song that has caught my attention with its honest and heartfelt lyrics.

Released in 2013, “Used To Be” is a hip-hop track that explores the theme of nostalgia and the pain of losing touch with old friends and memories. The song’s mellow beat and Classified’s introspective flow set the tone for the song’s poignant lyrics, which speak to the universal experience of growing up and moving on.

Through his lyrics, Classified reflects on his past and the friendships he once had, but has since lost. He speaks candidly about the challenges of staying in touch and the pain of realizing that some relationships are no longer what they used to be. The song is a reminder of the importance of cherishing the people and memories that matter most, and of the bittersweet nature of life’s changes.

“Used To Be” is a powerful reminder of the impact that music can have on our emotions and our sense of self. Classified’s lyrical skill and ability to convey complex emotions through music make the song a standout in the hip-hop genre, and a testament to the power of vulnerability and honesty in music.

As a music enthusiast, I highly recommend giving “Used To Be” a listen. It is a poignant and introspective track that speaks to the universal experience of growing up and moving on. The song is a reminder to cherish the people and memories that matter most and to stay connected to our past, even as we move towards the future.

Here’s the lyrics to “Used To Be”:

Man, remember tape cassettes?
Tape cassettes? !
I remember goin into record stores, gettin so excited
For that new album, you know?
When you got it, is was like nothin else mattered
Oh yeah, yeah, I guess, you had to pay for that shit
Yeah man, it’s not like that anymore
Kind of feel, kind of feelin like damn
When they used to say they don’t make music like they used to
(The way it used to be)
No, I see what you’re sayin man, I see what you’re sayin
Check this out, look, yeah
What you got?

My, my, my, my dad says they don’t make music like they use to
And nowadays there ain’t no record store to root through
We upload and then we viewin it on YouTube
Digital to Bluetooth, I see why that confuse you
This day and age, shit it’s hard to tell who’s who
So many artists, every week you hear a new group
Maybe it’s me or possibly I got a screw loose
A raisin short of two scoops but we don’t do what you do (do, do)

Now-now-now-nowadays when I turn on the radio (yeah)
It’s like they take the same old song and play it out (true)
Might be your favorite now but hate it in a day or so
Here today, gone tomorrow, that’s how the saying goes
The oldies were timeless and classic (that’s right)
Music now is models and actress (ah naw)
Who we pay to ogle they asses (yeah)
Never liked metal but still prefer it to plastic

My dad says they don’t make music like they use to
(Oh no they don’t, no they don’t, no they don’t)
And my crew says they don’t make beats like they use to
(Oh no they don’t, no they don’t, no they don’t)
You know what I-I think? It’s just the music that I’m use to
(It’s what I’m use to, it’s what I’m use to)
I need my headphones louder, louder, louder, louder, louder, louder, louder, louder

Drum machines with touch screens, this must be the future
One man band all recorded on computer
Cubase, Cakewalk and Pro Tools users
Filtered effects and overused Auto-Tuners
(If you can’t hit the note), then hit a switch
Artists can’t get the pitch and end up “singing like this”
Sounds like robots are takin our jobs
While these same record labels keep on payin ’em off

Now have you ever thought about the old records we were proud to play (yeah)
And if you heard them for the first time nowadays? (yeah)
Would we give the same props, same amount of praise? (nope)
I highly doubt it eh, it’d probably sound out of date (yeah)
Or maybe life nowadays kind of cloud our taste (yeah)
And hearin old tracks takes us back around the way (woo)
Yeah, still soundin great, off to outer space
Without a trace, leavin eardrums bent out of shape

Yeah, the records that I play (back in the days)
You know the clothes that I wear (back in the days)
Haha, hey yo people! {you should know just how I feel}
(Back in the days when I was young, I’m not a kid anymore)
