MED ft. Talib Kweli - Classic

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: MED
  • Track: Classic
  • Feat. Talib Kweli
  • Producer: Karriem Riggins
  • Album: Untitled MED Album

It's hard to tell, after just a couple listens, whether a dope record has truly timeless appeal, but this I know for certain: this joint, the first Booth feature from Californian emcee MED, is “Classic.” Yep, that's definitely the title – and, jokes aside, it's also a damned good track. Here, the up-and-comer joins forces with conscious vet Talib Kweli to do a little reminiscing about the music we all know and love. Karriem Riggins keeps things relatively subdued on the production tip, serving up a short soul loop backed with gritty percussion as the collaborators deliver their sharpest lyrical insights – one of the most memorable being this forward-looking pearl of wisdom from Kweli: “I witnessed the death of the CD / Liberate yourself from that format and be free .” Whether or not you think this joint lives up to its lofty title, it's looking like underground heads have a lot to look forward to on MED.'s forthcoming, yet-untitled full-length. If you're a fan, keep it locked for the latest release details on the project.
