Slum Village - Fantastic Volume II: 20th Anniversary Edition [RSDJUNE21]
The contributions of J Dilla to the world of hip-hop can't be overstated, and nowhere is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, alongside rappers T3 and Baatin, Dilla provided the group's distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip-hop legend having produced cuts for Common, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Fantastic Volume 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work. Ne'Astra Media Group presents the album in a 20th anniversary edition with a deluxe obi-wrap and an exclusive one-time-only Golden Pearl Splatter vinyl pressing as part of RSD Drops.
