West Coast emcee M.E.D. (previously known as Medaphor) has worked with some of underground hip hop's best and now has releases his sophomore effort, Classic. Along with linking up with other artists like Aloe Blacc, Talib Kweli and others, M.E.D. also gives his take on the meaning behind the record's name. "I called the LP Classic because that's the approach I took: create music that has the potential to be played by every generation," the rapper said. "This album deals with current issues, personal and within the community. Good-feeling music will always last and allow hip-hop to grow. Even though I recorded well LP was to do the music that I love to do but at the same time show growth."
