Biography

Detroit, United States

When Slum Village emerged in the late 1990s, the highly regarded Detroit trio of T3, Baatin and Jay Dee made a startling admission: their group was a liquid association with members coming and going during the group’s evolution. True to their word, Slum Village has already gone through a number of line-up changes.

Rapper-producer Jay Dee left after the group’s first national album, 2000’s Fantastic, Vol. 2 (Barak) and rhymer Elzhi was added to the mix for 2002’s Trinity (Past, Present And Future) (Barak/Capitol). Now, with the release of Slum Village’s new album, the stunningly impressive Detroit Deli (Barak/Capitol), the group consists of just T3 and Elzhi. Throughout the changes, Slum Village’s musical mission has remained constant: to deliver -stirring sonics that represent Detroit to the fullest. That vision is fully realized on Detroit Deli. Throughout the sensational 15-cut collection, T3 and Elzhi give listeners an intimate look at life in The D, from where they shop, hang with friends and eat to the type of cars they drive (check “Zoom”) and what clothes they wear.

Slum Village represents the Midwest’s funk heritage on the inspirational “Do You,” which was produced by Jay Dee, and teams with Chicago’s Kanye West on lead single “Selfish,” a sly, piano-driven song where T3, Elzhi and West rap about their desire to have a monopoly with women.
