M.E.D FEAT. JIMETTA ROSE – COMPLICATE (PRODUCED BY CHRIS KEYS)
Nick Rodriguez aka M.E.D is a veteran emcee/producer who is much respected in the underground hip-hop community. There are so many reasons to explain his status of solid artist: first of all,his remarkable skills to grab the mic rapping with an easy going flow or killer rhymes but also his clever approach to music, that led him to surround himself with incredible and renowned exponents of da hip-hop game and not only: the younger brother of Madlib, Oh No,J.Dilla,Dudley Perkins ,Diamond D,The Alchemist,Aloe Blacc,Talib Kweli,Georgia Anne Muldrow,Karriem Riggins and the list goes on and on!
