Slum Village, Villa Manifesto
â€œI had a vision to put us all back together,â€ raps T-3 on â€œThe Reunion Pt. 2â€ from Slum Villageâ€™s Villa Manifesto. But much has changed since the groupâ€™s 2005 self-titled album: J Dilla passed away in 2006, and then Baatin died from a drug overdose three years later. Both get the spotlight through pre-recorded material, and when the quartet shines together on the kinetic â€œEarl Flynn,â€ itâ€™s Fantastic all over again. Wisely, surviving members T-3 and Elzhi balance bittersweet memories (â€œWeâ€™ll Show Youâ€) with the sumptuous neo-soul raps SV fans know and love them for.
