Apparently, this is from MED's forthcoming new album for Stones Throw, but no real details are available on that release. Regardless, "Classic" is a, um, classically soulful affair produced by Karriem Riggins, and full of softly plucked guitar melodies, ethereal vocal "ahs," and muffled orchestral arrangements. But the elements of the track's soft side are all balanced out by the crisp boom and bap of the slow-grooving hip-hop beat that really carries the song. Over it, both MED and Talib Kweli deliver even-handed flows that highlight their loves for tasteful lyricism and timeless instrumentals—both of which "Classic" has in spades.
