After eLZhi aired some dirty laundry exclusively with XXL last week, now T3 speaks on his version of events, working with Little Brother, why eLZhi was never supposed to be on “Reunion 2″ and why fans are always the one that makes great groups break up because they always pick favorites.
That last line… you believe that T3. You believe that.
T3 and Young RJ sit down with Ms. Drama to speak about the upcoming Slum Village album, the future of SV, the passing of both J Dilla and Baatin, Eminem being the “rap Elvis”, Jay-Z still killing it and how they think Drake is making moves while J. Cole is dope but has a ways to go. That’s part 1. In part 2 (below) they speak about Slaughterhouse, upcoming projects and more.
Both companies are known for creating designs that start conversations, create debates and educate the masses all at the same time. The Detroit Riot series was inspired by the city’s Riots of 1967, that occurred as a direct result of many of the ills that are plaguing our society today like a troubled economy, high unemployment rate, police brutality, dissatisfaction with social conditions and the rapid population decline in many urban areas. The Detroit Riots series brings light to how far we’ve come as a society but also shows how close we are to repeating history if issues are not only addressed but corrected.
In part 2 of SV’s new web series, T3 speaks on some touring memories, the significance of J Dilla, and how he affected the group in his tenure with them (as well as his departure from the group). Their Villa Manifesto EP drops (online) on December 15th.
In part 1 of this new Slum Village video series, T3 and Elzhi speak on Fantastic v.1 and v.2; and how Elzhi came to be welcomed into the group. UPDATE: Brought this back to the top as I’ve included the artwork for their upcoming Villa Manifesto EP after the jump…
Last week after the DC stop of the Rock the Bells mini-tour, Funkadelic Freestyles Radio chopped it up with T3 for a quick 10 minute interview. The Slum Village member addressed the absence of Slaughterhouse on the final night of the tour, the emotional performance the day after Baatin’s death and the new Slum Village album (Villa Manifesto, September 22nd).
