About Us

Hip-hop derives its very essence from expression. For the last thirty years, there have been attempts to curtail that vital element of the culture, from early radio neglect to government bans in the 90's to protests and sanctions on individual artists in the modern era. Today, though, hip-hop has prevailed and finds a home on Top 40 Radio with relative ease, but the new dialog is whether hip-hop music now overshadows hip-hop culture, with the messages in the music becoming more representative of the culture than the people actually consuming the music. Lines have been drawn, but regardless of position, expression remains at the center of the argument. And straddling that very line in the heartland of America, Kalamazoo, Michigan M.E.D. are waiting for their turn to explain why they fit into the conversation.

M.E.D. is poised to make 2010 a breakout year. Having recently inked a deal with heavy-hitters Mobb North Records in Detroit and signing on to a management deal with well-respected Focal Point Media, the group are ready to bring their brand of music to the world. Inspired by diverse artists like Outkast and E-40, pop mainstays like Kanye West and Eminem and wordsmiths like Lupe Fiasco and Kool G Rap, M.E.D. members L-C.I.D., Anagram and The Mic Smith know it's an uphill battle. But armed with local support in Kalamazoo, a bubbling presence in Detroit, and love from press outlets like Allhiphop.com, OnSmash, HoodHype and much of the Michigan local press, M.E.D.'s humor, insight and perspective has them primed to bring a new element to a changing hip-hop culture.
