    Since first appearing in 5 On It nearly two years ago, New York rapper Medhane has continued to hone his greatest strength: The purposefulness with which he delivers every line. “1245,” his new release with frequent collaborator Slauson Malone, proves a further sharpening of the sword, a meandering set of verses over a sample of French group Cortex’s “Huit Octobre 1971” (which you might recognize from Madvillain’s “One Beer”).
