How’s About Some New Slum Village Over An Unreleased Jay Dee Beat? J Dilla Forever! (Audio)

In honor of 40 years to the day since J Dilla’s birth, the donutty treats just keep coming. Slum Village, which presently includes group co-founder T3, as well as (J Dilla’s younger brother) Illa J and Young RJ teamed with some unreleased material, in the way of beats and rhymes, from Dilla (another co-founder).

Before tonight’s Dilla Day party, the group released this “Yes Yes,” which calls back to the late ’90s/early 2000s group sound, when things piqued Capitol Records to sign the Detroit dopeness, and they were working with Kanye West, in addition to Dilla’s growing production discography with Common, A Tribe Called Quest, and Erykah Badu.

This joint will be on the group’s upcoming album, which features involvement from Black Milk, who was RJ’s partner (as BR Gunna) and worked closely with the group after Dilla’s departure.


How important is music like this to bring attention to never-not-dope S.V.?
