Slum Village - Scheming feat. J Dilla, Posdnuos & Phife

August 17th, 2010

I don’t know exactly what’s going on behind the scenes, but Slum Village did drop an album called “Villa Manifesto” a couple of weeks ago. And J Dilla is on several tracks.

It’s been said that the head of the label and Elzhi are not getting along. Whatever it is, I hope they get back together… But it’s already sad that half (?) of Elzhi’s (who’s a really, really dope MC) verses got dropped from the album.

Here’s the Spotify link for the album. My man Hatsolo picked the following track as well.

In case you missed this one from Rae’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2, here you go. With Dilla on the beat, this tribute to ODB sounds like Wu!

Hi-Tek & Co. Express Feelings

March 7th, 2009

“Music is… my total existence, straight up. Everything in my life evolves around music.” -J Dilla

Dilla (R.I.P.) certainly was dedicated; he was touring Europe only a few months before passing away.

“Crates of records, great sessions had the whole hood jammin,
large speakers, fresh made, smell the wood sandin” -Nas

Nas reminisces over the times of Kool Herc & his block parties with custom made speakers. It’s said that Herc’s first sound system consisted of 2 turntables and a guitar amp.

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

November 30th, 2008

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.
