As of 2013, filmmakers have been hard at work on a remake of Weird Science, a John Hughes comedy in which two nerdy teens use their smarts to transform a Barbie doll into a beautiful woman. But it looks like Classified may have beat Hollywood to the punch with the official video for new single Higher. Directed by RT!, the clip stars the Nova Scotian rap mainstay and guest B.o.B. in a blunted homage to the ‘85 flick. The song itself is every bit as engaging as the video. Over his own bubblegum-catchy beat, an exhilarating flip of Jackie Wilson’s (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher, Class and his ATL-repping colleague rhyme about their lifelong love affair with a girl named Mary Jane. Like what you’re hearing? Then stay tuned; this joint isn’t attached to a larger set from Classified, but we’ll keep you posted on both collaborators’ plans as further details emerge.
