Medina Green Funky Fresh In The Flesh & More
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Illson Media
It‘s true that these days, Mos Def is known more as a Hollywood actor than an underground hip-hop artist. It‘s all the more notable, then, that his early indie hip-hop crew Medina Green still flourishes today, consisting of Def, his brother DCQ, their cousin Magnetic, and longtime homies Lord Ato and Jah Born. Medina‘s newest collection draws upon lean, old school, Native Tongue-esque stylings and deeply introspective raps, both of which keenly embrace an intellectual flow. Check out the affectionate cut "Momma Said," a heartfelt call to young people to better themselves despite their most humbling circumstances.
