Since ’99, MED (a.k.a. Medaphoar) has been slingin’ rhymes from the left coast via countless guest appearances and one-off singles. After six years, Stones Throw proudly presents his debut full-length. Every track is worth the wait. The album cements MED’s brazen intentions to “snatch the game by the throat with a money grip” by way of a punctuated AK-47 flow and head nod board work by J. Dilla, Oh No, Just Blaze, and the ubiquitous Madlib. Aside from four of his previous joints, including “Special” (sans Badu’s vocals), these bangers are guaranteed fresh out the pack and certified sucker free.
