Why the HECK Is medi so mediocre lately. There are so many good artists around. So many dubs. And he puts out another truth record.
(quoting function seems to be broken atm)
between dubs that the artist simply doesn’t want to release at all (count out all the old mala/loefah dubs), tunes that the artist can’t or doesn’t want to put out on medi for whatever reason, and tunes that mala doesn’t want to or can’t put out on medi for whatever reason, maybe there aren’t as many alternative dubs that he can realistically release as you think there are.
or maybe there are other reasons behind the scenes that we are not privy to. maybe he doesn’t have the time, or the finances, and he allows truth to use the label as a platform because they can afford to either finance the release upfront or they can put in the necessary time to make it work.
obviously it’s one of these reasons. he’s not purposely withholding better material that he has the capability to release.
the alternative to this is most likely no release at all. perhaps if this release is successful, then Mala and the label have a little extra money to go towards the next project, or perhaps it proves to Mala and whoever else that there is still an audience for these tunes. i’m just saying there’s nothing for us (the listeners) to gain by just throwing shade at it (and there’s potentially something to lose if it causes the release to be less successful). there isn’t necessarily anything to be gained by not throwing shade at it, but there might be (more future releases)
