    Product Details


    Ne'Astra Music is proud to announce the release of Evolution, the new Slum Village album. Evolution is the long-anticipated release coming on the heels of the critically acclaimed mix tapes "Dirty Slums" and "Dirty Slums 2." This album features new music from founding member T3 along with Young RJ and Illa J.

    The group was founded in the early 90s by three childhood friends: Baatin, T3, rapper and producer J Dilla, who all grew up together in the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit, MI. 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, where they originally went by the name Ssenepod.

    Even though the group has suffered many heartaches and member changes over the years, Slum Village always finds a way to reinvent its brand. As the group has persevered despite the struggles over the years, it was only natural that the inspiration for this album title paid tribute to Slum Village's enduring quality. The meaning of Evolution can be described as "a continuous change to a higher, more complex or better state" and that is exactly what Slum Village has ascribed to with their music over the years, culminating with this new album. The Evolution of Slum Village continues with a reinvigorated energy, as founding member T3 holds down the legacy along with the Grammy-nominated producer Young RJ as well as young prodigy Illa J at his side.

    Evolution also includes the talents and skills of Havoc (of Mobb Deep), Raheem Devaughn, Jazzy Jeff and Rapper Big Pooh, amongst others. The album was produced by T3, Young RJ and FOCUS.

    Comment: I don't believe in throwing dudes under the bus in these comments, so I simply explain my thoughts. I like to think that they are fairly credible after listening to nothing but hip hop for over 25 yrs. So, here goes. I use to love SV. Dilla left. Obviously, a change in group dynamic. Brought Elzhi onboard. Trinity wasn't bad (Detroit Deli = crap). Fast forward to now. Baatin is gone, Dilla is gone, so T3 brings on Illa J, simply based on his relationship to Dilla (business move). I get it. Elzhi bails. Don't blame him (waiting for the next LP btw). Black Milk is putting out quality releases. So, T3 sees the ship sinking and brings in Young RJ since Milk is gone, and there's the knew SV. T3, Illa J and Young RJ. Disappointing. This album is a last effort and they're grasping at straws to keep the SV name alive. Unfortunately it's history. Saw these guys live recently. Show was crap. Performed mostly classic SV shit. C'mon. The beats here are mediocre at best and the rhymes are awful. Sorry but this isn't the SV I was diggin years ago.

    Comment: I probably shouldn't have bought this album. It has some bangers, but it ain't slum village at all.

    Comment: Despite what has been said about elzhi leaving and two of the original members deceased this album is still dope, don't get me wrong Elzhi is one of the best rappers around tho and its a loss to SV.

    Comment: I just can't man... Can't get pass young rj soundin like baatin or attempting to, whatever he's tryna do, it's just not right, illa j probably should have try to do more melodic sounds cuz I never thought he would be a dope lyricist. RJ is nice on boards and YO!!! BIG POOH GOES OFF ON RIOT. Last track, very appropriate. Other than that, a strong effort. For me, if it wasn't for them keepin the SV name, it would be a 3.7 or somethin cuz it's knockin, T3 dishin out his combos but it's just man... Stop it RJ.

    Comment: Its dope as expected but it is NOT Slum Village. I think it is time to retire the name Slum Village in honor of the fallen homies . This is a stupid dope album but it isn't Slum V .

    Comment: The production is pretty good....But not having Elzhi is definitely a tough blow to recover from.

    Comment: I'm buying this strictly off the fact that Dilla was apart of this group and would be proud of not only this album and the legacy but his lil brother is apart this project.EPMD said "Business never Personal".

    Comment: so two members have died, the third member fucked the fourth one over, to the point that he dropped out of the group, and now the third member's putting out a new album under the group name with him and two other guys. t3's a shady dude.

    Comment: I could ride w/ T-3 & Illa-J but no one's trying to hear Young RJ rapping as a part of Slum Village. They also could have used some outside production. This is unfortunate.
