    not a good way to start off your sunday. up early. looks like it's goin to be another hot day here in NY. bout to workout. ... came here saw this. all I can say is Yikes! Who is making the decisions in this camp? I know dam well they did not replace Elzhi for illa j ? (no disrespect to illa j) .....but let's be serious!!!!!! I guess this video proves that T3 really did kick Elzhi out of SV. This is horrible.

  • arkonhiphop

    2 of THE ORIGINAL TRIO are turning over in their graves right now. I agree with all yall...... If ELZHI is no longer in Slum Village, they should just call it quits.

  • http://cotnmusic.com LanskyJones

    ahhhh... where the fuck is elzhi? he needs that last verse! why is illa j in this now? hes not ready for that kinda shine

    shout out to Rio and Scrilgates on the dope video..

    but this no elzhi shit is wack.. its difficult for me to even watch this and listen to this song, knowing that slum village is a wrap!

    Rip Dilla.. Rip Baatin Rip Slum Village

    this whole Sv shit is FUckin SAD!

    ps

    Detroit still runs shit

  • dalek

    Ummm... this song is gonna be on the album. It wasn't JUST recorded after the break up. It's called "Reunion 2." So it's the original members of SV: T3, Dilla, Baatin. Illa J is just taking Dilla's spot on the track, I guess.

    Elzhi is going to be on the album.

  • ironmike

    Dont hate appreciate

  • http://cosignspittah.tumblr.com/ Spit

    Ithink everybody should do their solo thing. This isn't MY Slum. I kinda feel like T3 won't let it go cuz then he won't eat as much. Better that than destroy a doubt legacy.

  • ironmike

    ^^^
    co-sign spit

  • Polytetrafluoroethylene Dominus

    double co sign

  • dalek

    Again... BAATIN IS ON THIS TRACK. Which means that this is not the NEW Slum Village. This is the "original" SV. Hence the name Reunion. Why are you guys thinking this is the new SV?

  • http://cotnmusic.com LanskyJones

    seriously? its the new sv cause ILLA J was never a member of slum village, on top of that eLZhi was on the reunion pt 1 on detroit deli. Would've been better if it was the four horsemen minus dilla this time and just baatin being the reunited.

  • P514

    it isn't the best track. the rest of the album is dope.

  • dalek

    If Illa J was an official member, it wouldn't say "featuring Illa J."

  • BANKROLLS

    *sighs* . IN THE MEANTIME, CHECK OUT EURO LEAGUE'S ROUGH DRAFT MIXTAPE THAT DROPPED RECENTLY.. FEATURES A TRACK BY Boi-1da & A FREESTYLE OVER KENDRICK LAMAR'S WANNA BE HEARD.. U MIGHT EVEN FIND SOME FAMILIAR BEATS BY MADLIB & J. DILLA. CHECK IT OUT. http://euroleague.bandcamp.com/

  • greens21

    just reading this whole thing is disappointing. TRIPLE -CO-SIGN Spit.
    And dalek, who the fuck are you! You obviously don't see how obviously disrespectful this is to elzhi. First T3 or the label barock records or whoever it was kicks Elzhi out the group. Then on top of that, they don't put him on the reunion song! WTF! and they have all these other people in the video. It looks like a FLAT OUT DISS RECORD TOWARD ELZHI TO ME.

  • greens21

    Just watched it again..........T3, talking bout "Elzhi off doing solo shows".....Shit, looks like he needs to keep doing more solo shows! Cuz this shit looks like some fake, weak ass... "Making da Band" type shit.

  • Jay

    Quadruple Co-Sign Spit. He's dead on about that.

  • DayO

    THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING YOU DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    =(

  • http://www.myspace.com/clintpartie Clint Partie

    To everyone talkin' bout "this isn't MY SV" or they want the original Slum or whatever, Elzhi's not the "original" or "real" Slum Village, either. It's T3, Baatin, & Jay Dee, & Phat Kat & the like before that. Also, as for the 2 "rolling in their graves," I'm pretty sure Dilla would be proud of his little brother for being in SV.

  • http://marlyislove.tumblr.com/ Marly Jay

    It's a shame really.

  • el

    STFU CLINT. AND STFU "FANTASTIC" which is probly t3's fat ass, or a lame from barak tryin to comment back. U mafukrs dont realize that niggaz really loved slum out here..& any body who loves SV is a smart hip hop listener and is not gonna fall for this Bullishh,,

  • ironmike

    This aint hatin or nothin.. the reason people react critical is because people actually care about SV. No need for excuses or setting the record straight.

    Dilla created the platform for SV. Now without Dilla they out in the open waters trying to keep their heads above water.

  • wombat

    illa j is garbage for reals.

  • greens21

    to Clint... Yeah Dilla may be proud of his brother, or he may be totally disappointed like all of us true SV fans are. We will never really know that... the real question is why is his brother even participating in all this anyway? Didn't Dilla leave the label and the group back in the day because they did him dirty? They will probably end up doing his little brother the same way. anyways, good luck. I'll still listen to old SV and new Elzhi. Period. im out!

  • http://twitter.com/conwaymusic BENBROKERECORDS
  • JonesDeini

    @ Green21
    Nah, folk. Dilla left SV back in the day to take advantage of the production opportunities that were opening up to him out west. He always had love for SV and the D and made sure he always showed support to the group. He even personally chose Elzhi to be in SV and take his spot. He knew with the new label attention they were gettin' from Fantastic Vol.2 that they would need some lyrical muscle to balance out the group.
    As far as Villa Manifesto goes nothing that's leaked has really impressed me yet, but I'm gon' hold off from jumping the gun. I don't think Elzhi's kicked out SV but this is (and should be) the last SV album. Between recording his on material and show's El couldn't lay a verse on every track. Some of the leaks have had various line ups like El & 3, 3 & Tan, Tan & El, etc. And Illa J's been brought in to provide that Dilla vibe...but sorry, dude's no Dilla. And with Tan passing last year this whole project seems kind of, well, ill-conceived. However I'll wait to see how things pan out.

  • cdoakes

    So Illa J has replaced Elzhi? Hmmm...yeh that was well thought out. Elzhi has more growth potential as a solo artist at this point anyway. The ego is the most dangerous thing on this planet.

  • Cole

    I fuggin cant wait till it drop.

  • Musashi

    Illa J didn't replace Elzhi, Elzhi's just not on this track. Not that big of a surprise, Elzhi wasn't on every track of the Manifesto EP either. So quit throwin' a fit and loosen your panties. Illa J's verse is fucking weak though, shouldn't have been featured.

  • JonesDeini

    ^^^
    Schyeah, can't think of a single reason for Illa J to have ONE single feature on this album. He's really not that dope of an emcee. Detroit heavy weights like Black, Lo, Royce, Guilty, Phat Kat, etc. make more sense.

  • Ty Townsend

    Slum Village is Wack RJ Rice's plan to bully Elzhi out of the group has back fired everything RJ touches Dose not work because of His Greed Dilla Left the group because of his bullshit Black Milk Left There is no one from the camp But T3 and he will find himself working @ Mc Donalds because RJ never gave a fuck about nobody but his self. Im sorry but your plan to slide Illa J in and Elzhi Out shows how stupid you really are. The Album is weak Bullshit cause you took Elzhi off of 6 songs Fuck Slum Village Because the the Artist Have never been given label support just your cons and scams. You need to be investagated for corruption Elzhi would be better off solo.

  • dinner

    great job T3 ruinin SV

  • Ty Townsend

    RIP Slum Village cause no one wants to book SV without Elzhi. Good luck T3 time to be a man.

  • http://www.myspace.com/slumvillage FANTASTIC

    STOP HATING LIKE SOME BRAINWASHED SHEEPS!!! SUPPORT BOTH CAMPS! THEY ALL DOING GOOD MUSIC! ENJOY THE MUSIC!!!

  • lil rjr

    You must be gettin a cut of the backend to say sum shit like that.

  • http://www.myspace.com/clintpartie Clint Partie

    God, people are jaded on here. I see that "FANTASTIC" runs the SV myspace or whatever but I agree with him. There's no reason we can't support all of these different cats when they're still making good music. It's true that SV will be a bit depraved lyrically without Elzhi but with all the great producers that T3 & Illa J will continue to work with, I for one, will still certainly wanna hear the music.

  • WorkinOnIt

    I've read every comment on this board, and I watched this video several times before commenting. ...as a HUGE SV fan, this is a really hard thing to see because SV is better than this. Bottom line. Whether we are talking about Jay Dee era SV or the newer El version. This is not Slum, this is a desperate attempt by a few desperate people to make a buck off a legacy. No offense to Illa J, but his verse? That shit was garbage, and I doubt Jay Dee would would have been proud of that (as some of you have argued). I'm sure, in fact, that if he were around, Dilla would have never let that shit be recorded to save his brother the embarrassment. As far as I could tell, Dilla wasn't a yes man, he kept it real, even with his friends and fam about their musical ability, so anyone up here thinking Jay Dee would have supported that just because Illa J is his brother needs to sit the fuck down. Jay Dee was about this music shit, don't forget that. Moving on, I really feel like T3 is wrong for takin' shots at his own brothers on this track, because, if ya'll are a group, ya'll should be supporting each other (whether other members are more successful or not). Bottom line is, this is the second music video to come out with no El. You got Young RJ, Rio Data, Illa J with that haircut that makes him look mildly retarded, but no fuckin' El? Yeah the fuck right. We know what's up (or at least, we get the jest of it). Have some respect for yourselves, the group, the name, the legacy, etc, and be real. I honestly was so disappointed when I heard this was going to be the last album, because I love this group like it's a member of my own family, but this shit, it needs to end now. This shit is like having an old sick pet, as much as you don't want to because you think of how it USED to be, the reality is, what it is now is suffering, and it needs to be put out of it's misery. Which is something I never thought I would have to say about SV - because I LOVE them, but when you really love some shit, you're honest about it. RIP J Dilla. Rip Baatin (I can't believe it's been almost a year). Support good music - and let'em know when it's bullshit.

  • http://cosignspittah.tumblr.com/ Spit

    Yeah, I'm not goin back and forth with anybody on here but real Slum heads know what it is. This isn't IT. It's just sad. Some things you just can't force, this being one of them.

  • lil rjr

    "Life is not a matter of counting the years, it is a matter of making the years count!" Too many wasted years,and now this bullshit!

  • Jay_VA

    This isn't the SV that I've been a fan of since forever.

    That being said, it's one track. The EP last year was dope. Lock it Down was dope. I'm still hopeful about the album, I can pass one subpar track.

    According to T3, this is the last Slum album, and it should be that way. If there's hella fallout between him and Elzhi, they both should just work on their solo careers. The entire Slum catalog has been dope thus far.

    To everyone tossing hate Illa's side, this isn't his best work. He is an incredible artist tho'. Dude can sing and mc. Check his solo album, tracks like "hot," "i ain't gonna die" from that one 7", and his verses off of Caltroit. Dude is far from wack.

  • mainmanjeff

    Wow! my man that works with the label said, they did this Reunion Video behind Elzhi's back! He didn't even know they were doing the song or the video! So shady! i guess they thought this lame crew or SV was bigger then Elzhi....LOL So dumb. Why can't people just be fair, and get along?

  • Trina Riz

    Ok I heard elzhi did Know about this Vid but never Showed Just like The Night Video Never Showed,Jus like Faster Never Showed. Ask around elzhi Never Shows on time for Sh or Shows up at all. I Heard at his Deep Vieo Shoot he Showed up like 5 hours Late. I dont know theres always 3 Sides to a Story Els Story,T3 story and the truth we all will never Know. Call to Detroit and really ask How el gets Down he cant be the Vic straight and Narrow.Use your heads or we all can be right if i pay attention to comments idk. I hope whatever it is for the sake of us they get their sh together. thats why ima start supporting Waka Flocka hahahaha

  • flordiaD

    This video is weak and sad. Where is Elzhi? I agree. This is not my Slum.

  • D J DEZ

    I DONT LIKE THIS SHIT...SMELLS SHADY...LEGACY CAN BE RUINED IF NOT HANDLED PROPERLY..IM WELL AWARE OF ALL DEALINGS CONCERNING SLUM...SO FUCC ALL THE DUMB...BUT THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE LOYALTY AND COMMUNICATION HERE..IM AN OG WHOS BEEN AROUND FROM DAY 1 SO FUCC WHO LIKE IT OR NOT..BUT REAL TALK SV'S BEST DAYS ARE BEHIND THEM...THEY MAKE EXCELLENT MUSIC...BUT HORRIBLE BUSINESS DECISIONS.....AND ITS LATE IN THE GAME...SO LETS JUST ENJOY THE MUSIC WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN THUS FAR...ANY THING FROM THIS POINT ON, AS FAR AS INTEGRITY... I CANNOT VOUCH FOR...REP THE GREAT LEGACY THAT IT IS...IM PROUD TO BE A PART OF......GOD BLESS WHATEVER HAPPENS NEXT....AND...ITS A HORRIBLE THING WHEN THE LAST FOUNDING MEMBER HAS NO LOYALTY WHATSOEVER TOWARDS ANYONE FROM DJ,TO RAP PARTNER,TO ROAD MANAGER,ETC.......NO NUTTS CAN ONLY MEAN NO GLORY!! NO ONE LIKES MEDICINE......THE TRUTH HURTS........THATS THE REAL..............I STILL REP LEGACY ALL DAY!!!! LIKE I SAID I AM VERY PROUD TO BE A PART OF HISTORY...IT WAS GREAT WHEN IT WAS GREAT......THIS IS THE RESULT OF WHAT IT IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

  • flordiaD

    Dam!!!! DJ Dez has defiantly spoken out. this RJ Rice guy and T3 seem to be what's fucking up the SV legacy. SMH.....:( anyways. I'll bump old SV. But I won't pay a dime to see a show this new bullshit...without Elzhi.
