MED Push Comes To Shove 04|21|2005

Producers include: Madlib, J Dilla, Just Blaze, Oh No and MC guests include Diamond D. I recall making the shortest chat ever with this cat when he asked me where the bathroom was at on Stones Throw tour. My answer was so stupid that i'm obligated to cop this album.
