To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Slum Village’s Fantastic Vol. 2, the group will drop a project titled Lost Scrolls Vol. 2 later this month. The first song to come from this is a remix to “Hold Tight” that features Q-Tip.
Check out the visuals for the J Dilla produced “Love Is” from Slum Village’s Yes! album.
If, for some strange reason, you haven’t picked up Slum Village’s Yes! album, this joint featuring Jon Connor should motivate you to make the purchase.
Slum Village (Young RJ & T3) returns with their eighth album Yes! Before the album drops on June 16 you can get a full listen (or two, or three) in. Featuring the likes of De La Soul, Black Milk, Bilal and the production of the late J Dilla on eight (!) songs, it’s certainly worth the spin. Cop it on iTunes.
Slum Village drops this breezy set of visuals for the J Dilla produced “Expressive” that also features Rosewood 2055, Illa J and BJ The Chicago Kid.
Nothing like hearing some unreleased Jay Dee production. Slum Village’s latest off their upcoming album Yes! features that Dilla bounce as well as guest spots from BJ The Chicago Kid and Illa J.
Phife Dawg drops lyrical gems alongside Slum Village on this joint from their upcoming album Yes.
