“Lock It Down”


    The soon-to-be-departed Slum Village share a joint from their final album Villa Manifesto. No surprises here: stuttering blap and hard raps. Well, about as hard as SV could ever get. But isn’t it odd hearing this and knowing that 2/3 of the original group has passed away? Understandable if the late J Dilla and Baatin were past retirement age, but those cats were barely pushing 30.

    Wow, that got awkward right quick.

    This has been floating around for a minute, but it’s now available in CDQ.
