"Nightlife" is from M.E.D.'s "Push Comes to Shove," the latest from the consistently great Stones Throw Records, home of visionary producer Madlib, who provides the beat for this track. And the beat, revolving around a beautiful acoustic bass sample that pushes and pulls stubbornly against the drums, is the reason to listen, as M.E.D.'s stiff, unremarkable rapping leaves a lot to be desired.
Daily Download: "Nightlife," M.E.D.
Bland rapping, but an amazing Madlib beat that makes up for it.
