After resurfacing at the DopeHouse with a video for “Trauma & Grace” back in April, Brooklyn’s Medhane is right back at it with the release of his third project in the last six months, Cold Water.
A follow-up to Own Pace and February’s Full Circle, Cold Water finds the BK spitter still tussling with topics of depression, isolation, and the trials and tribulations of being a black man in America.
“Own Pace was where things happened to me,” Medhane told DJ Booth. “Full Circle was me finding my own footing and trying to put sound to what’s going on inside my head, and Cold Water is getting more into the actual struggles I had with depression and my mental health and me accepting them.”
“[Cold Water is] me going deeper into my emotions and leveling up with the raps as well,” he continued. “I think my raps on this one are way harder than the ones on my last two projects. The shit I be tryna do with the imagery and assonance and internal rhyme and shit. I felt like I had more to say this time overall.”
Led by “I’m Deadass,” the album checks in at 15 tracks with contributions from Alexander Spit, Chuck Strangers, ohbliv, AFB, and more.
