Before he struck out on his own and became the sort of producer whose name other beatmakers speak in hushed tones, the late legend J Dilla was a founding member of the Detroit underground rap trio Slum Village. Slum Village have been through a ton of lineup changes since Dilla was a member, but they’re still around. And on their new album Yes!, they’re almost entirely rapping over Dilla beats. We’ve already heard the De La Soul collaboration “Right Back,” and the album also has appearances from Phife Dawg, Bilal, Black Milk, BJ The Chicago Kid, and others. You can stream the whole thing below.
