Slept On pt. 2 - Slum Village (post Dilla)

Moving on from New York to Detroit, Motor Town, known from its soul legacy. One can still hear the influence of Berry Gordy’s Golden Age on the music created by the veteran group Slum Village.

In the spirit of A Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village has managed to stay true to the sound in spite of the changes. To my honest opinion, people have been sleeping on SV after Dilla (R.I.P.) went solo in 2002.

For example the strong “Slum Village” album (2005) seemed to remain in the shadows of the similar sound of Little Brother.
