Abstract Orchestra return to Band on the Wall for another huge night of hip-hop, teaming up with legendary Detroit heavy-hitters Slum Village.
Chances are, if you are anywhere near the Detroit music scene, you have heard of the influential hip-hop trio that makes up Slum Village. The group was founded in the early 90’s 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.
In 1991 changed their name to Slum Village, recording their first album Vol. 1″ , recorded in Dillas basement and RJ Rice Studios. Slum Village landed their first record deal in 1998 with Barak/AM records.
In 2001, J Dilla made the decision to leave the group to pursue his solo career, but still hung around helping Young RJ with production. Baatin and T3 started work on their next album “Trinity” through Barak/Capital Records. This album would feature their first commercial single “Tainted” which ft an unknown Dwele, also disco and the remix produced by Timberland.
Slum Village continues their journey with invigorated energy as T3 and Grammy nominated producer Young RJ hold the legacy, with his solo project Blaq Royalty album featuring BJ The Chicago Kid, Joyner Lucas, and Pete Rock & The Detroit Project featuring Phat Kat and Guilty Simpson.
This is a standing show.
