New Villlaaaa!! You already know how I feel about Slum Village, and if you don't, you should. My favorite local rap group has gone through some unfortunate circumstances over the years. Both Jay Dee (J Dilla) and Baatin split from the group for different reasons back in the day. Local emcee Elzhi teamed up with remaining member T3 to keep things going. Dilla rejoined the group only to die from illness before they could develop the anticipated reunion album. Elzhi and T3 mended their relationship with Baatin and the three worked together on the upcoming album. Everything was going good until Baatin suddenly past away earlier this year. Even with all of the tragedy that has been suffered by the group over their existance, I am happy to say that they are still releasing new music for the fans. Slum Village will be releasing the "Villa Manifesto EP" on December 15th. It will only be available digitally, so check for it on Amazon and iTunes.

You can listen to the EP on their Myspace page right now, so put ears on it immediately! The new album drops in the first quarter of 2010.

That is all!
