Summer is around the corner with it’s flowers and hot sun. I can hardly wait. My sandals are all dusted, my nails are polished and waiting to go. Where you ask? Over to Slum Village we go. No, it’s not a place.
Slum Village was founded by three friends from Detroit: Baatin, T3, rapper and producer J Dilla. Since the early nineties, they have been making waves in the hip hop underground scene. Over the years, they have have their setbacks, personal losses and mountains to climb. However, now in 2013, with the original member T3 still holding down the fort, Illa J which is the brother of original member and Young RJ, grammy nominated producer, Slum Village is still keeping it real. They have a new mixtape “Dirty Slums”, presented by DJ Mick Boogie, featuring artists such as Big Sean, Rapper Big Pooh, De La Soul, Focus, Skyzoo, Phonte, and Phife. Over 100000 downloads later and rave reviews, the group released an official full length album and are planning on part two. I urge you to read their whole bio here.
My boy Simon ST will be on the show alongside his boy Liam, banging out some of their hits. Listen to my favorite track right here.
I told you it was a sick song!
Slum village will be joined by some local talent as well:
Alee & Big Bricc
