Slum Village Yes on Limited Edition LP
Since 1996, Slum Village has been an important and enduring presence in Detroit's underground hip-hop scene. Integral in launching the mainstream careers of rappers like T3, Baatin, Elzhi, and in shining a light on the legendary genius of J Dilla, a founding member of the group.
Throughout the late 90s and much of the 00s, Slum Village made their mark touring alongside contemporaries like A Tribe Called Quest, Mobb Deep, India.Arie, and Floetry, and releasing hip-hop classics like Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1, and Fantastic, Vol. 2. The group has experienced some turbulence in recent years with the departure of Elzhi, and the passing of both J Dilla and Baatin, but still operates under T3's leadership, featuring new members Young RJ, and Illa J.
Yes, the highly anticipated album from Slum Village is ready to hit your ears. The new album features beats produced by Jay Dee aka J Dilla along with production from Young RJ who together produced one of Slum Village’s finest moments ever in the form of Fantastic Vol. 2.

There are also features from Bilal, Jon Connor, BJ The Chicago Kid, Phife Dawg, J Ivy, De La Soul and Illa J. Slum Village is crucial part of J Dilla’s legacy and Yes, they’re back with more!
