DJ Alisha B interviews Slum Village

Chances are, if you are anywhere near the Detroit music scene, or are  a true school global Hip hop head, you know about  the influential hip hop trio that makes up Slum Village. The group was founded in the early 90’s by 3 childhood friends: Baatin, T3, rapper and producer J Dilla, who all grew up together in the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit, MI. After leaving Pershing High School, the trio began to forge a path into the Detroit underground hip hop scene and quickly found themselves steadily gaining popularity.

DJ Alisha B and radio host Elzabieta Kozmicki got to sit down with T3 and RJ  and chop it up about the groups tribulations, tour life and Hip Hop.
