Slum Village bio:
Chances are you’ve heard of the influential Detroit hip hop trio that makes up Slum Village. The group was founded in the early 90s by three childhood friends: Baatin, T3 and producer J Dilla, who all grew up together in the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit. After leaving Pershing High School, the trio began to forge a path into the Detroit underground hip hop scene and quickly found themselves steadily gaining popularity.

In 1991, the group changed their name to Slum Village recording their first album in Dilla’s basement and RJ Rice Studios. It was critically acclaimed in the Detroit underground scene, later finding its way into the hands of A Tribe Called Quest’s own Q-Tip, who played it for some of hip hop’s elite, such as Busta Rhymes, Questlove, and D’angelo.

Slum Village landed their first record deal in 1998 with Barak/AM records. Their now classic record, “Fantastic, Vol. 2″ was dubbed an immediate classic from fans and industry tastemakers. This album featured an A list line up including Busta Rhymes, Common, D’angelo, Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock, Kurupt, and Q-Tip who passed the torch to Slum Village on the record “Hold Tight”.

Slum Village continues their journey with an invigorated energy as T3 holds down the legacy with Grammy nominated producer, Young RJ. Touring National and Internationally with rave reviews.
