The Sender

If you happen to have perfect recall and be obsessed with, well, you may be the most unlikely person ever to have walked this earth. But you might remember Median‘s 2007 interview with our own Nathan S., on which the emcee declared his intention to bridge the gaps between hip-hop lovers of all types—from scholars, to professionals, to ‘hood denizens. Four years later, the North Carolina repper (now signed to Jamla (IWWMG)/+FE Music ) is still walking that fine line, cooking up jam’s that’ll appeal to anyone who loves hot, old-school-informed beats and rhymes. On new single The Sender, label boss 9th Wonder‘s dusty, chopped-soul-sample instrumental sets a wistfully breezy mood as the emcee drops rhymes as relatable as they are erudite. In bars drenched with gratitude, the artist gives thanks to a higher power for the inspiration behind his perspiration: “They come and I’m sendin’ ‘em / Releasin’ the sunbeams that come to me from the above sender.” Need more musical sunshine in your life? Then be sure to cop Median’s latest LP, also titled The Sender, when it drops August 16.
