It’s tough to be a truth-speaker in a music industry overflowing with fakeness, but Knowledge Medina isn’t fazed—as he tells us on his latest feature, that’s just how he do. Making its world premiere right here on our front page, I’ll Do is a statement of principle from the South Floridian underground mainstay. Backed by Abstract‘s boom-bap percussion and Chipmunked samples, Medina rattles off a list of sh*t that he’s going to keep doing no matter what other rappers, industry execs, or mainstream listeners have to say—including defending his people, keeping it one-hundred, and generally carrying the torch for real hip-hop. Given the pledges Knowledge has made here, you know you can expect plenty more realness where this came from on the artist’s The Radio EP, scheduled for digital release in the near future. As always, keep it locked for the latest news and tunes!
