Slum Village fans are used to extended periods of waiting for new material, but 2012 has been nothing short of a treat. It was only back in March when the current lineup of Illa J, T3 and Young RJ released their stellar Dirty Slums mixtape, but the proud Detroit natives are already lining up a new LP.
Dirty Slums: Evolution is due out in November, and here we have the first sample with “Live It Up” featuring frequent collaborator, Vice. The punching drums and potent lyricism are nothing new, but the festering bass stabs (courtesy of RJ) help add a contemporary feel to it all.
