Slum Village Staff Pick

When: Sat., Jan. 11, 8 p.m. 2020
Price: $20
Ty Dolla $ign, Questlove, Erykah Badu, and Common are among those who have cited Detroit’s late great rapper and producer J Dilla as an inspiration. Dilla, who died due to complications from Lupus in 2006, left his mark on his hometown and the world of hip-hop at large in so many ways — leaving behind Slum Village, the hip-hop group made up of high school cohorts Dilla, Baatin (born Titus Glover, who died in 2009), and T3 in 1991. Keeping Slum Village’s iconic underground hip-hop sound alive is sole surviving member T3 and producer Young RJ, both of who released a pair of collaborative albums with the Abstract Orchestra. The instrumental records, Fantastic 2020 V. 1 and Fantastic 2020 V. 2, which interprets early Dilla’ compositions from Slum Village’s first two records. Slum Village will share the stage with D. Vaughn, the Illest, Pariis Noel, and DJ Chill Will 734.
