Their current position and push into the masses is the product of five years of steady grinding. Since the release of their acclaimed Buy This LP in 2005, M.E.D. has spent time building their reputation across Michigan. They've opened up for Twista, D12, Paul Wall, One Be Lo, and Brand Nubian, and promote all of their shows heavily, wearing the leather off their Jordans, as Anagram likes to say. But its their unique backgrounds that ultimately create the groups bond, initially forged in high school. Levelheaded and driven, Anagram is a product of vocally-trained parents; for L-C.I.D., his mothers love of Motown and his fathers jazz collection provided him the foundation for a completely unique style of rhyming. Mic Smiths own journey went from literature to poetry to finally hip-hop, but hed been a fan since 4 years old, and hes captures why exactly M.E.D. is the right group at the right time for a hip-hop culture in search of balance:The group is known for their wildly eclectic visual tastes, turning out videos like the tongue-in-cheek anthem Charlie Brown to the poppy and hook-driven Money which has garnered them close to 800,000 plays on YouTube and a spot on Oklahoma Citys New Years Eve party stage in 2006.
They’ve flirted with the idea of releasing a video mixtape in 2010 to introduce themselves to the world officially, but as of July 2010, are concentrating on pushing their single Where Did The Night Go (produced by Thaddiuos Dixon) locally to radio and on the web. With support from J-Rocc at Mobb North and their new relationship with April Shaharah Woodard at Focal Point Media, theyre looking to reach the same audiences as Detroits other big independent names: Royce Da 59, Slum Village, Danny Brown and Black Milk, to name a few, and still stand on their own two.Armed with a unique sound and a fully supportive team in place, M.E.D. is ready to arrive on the big stage and know full well what it'll take to get there. In turn, they only ask one thing of their supporters, and its delivered with a little humor but loud on conviction: Do You!
