Slum Village

Slum Village

Detroit might be better known for its rich techno history, but for those in the hip-hop scene, Detroit will always be linked to one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time: Slum Village. Formed in the mid-nineties by influential beat maker, J-Dilla, Slum Village’s first two albums were immediately dubbed classics by industry and fans alike, their unique take on hip-hop widely regarded as changing the face of hip-hop. After the untimely death of founding members J-Dilla and Baatin, the band forged on with members T3 and Young RJ, and this year they released the ‘Yes’ album which featured unreleased beats from J-Dilla, and feature vocals from the likes of De La Soul, Pfife Dawg, Jon Conner, Keely and more. Having toured and worked with acts like Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, John Legend, D’Angelo, Busta Rhymes and many more, Slum Village really is the act that you’re favourite hip-hop artists listen too. Do not miss this rare opportunity to see legitimate hip-hop royalty perform live.
