The mark that the late producer J Dilla left upon hip-hop during the 90s and early-to-mid

00s is undeniable, and his work with De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, and

many more has long been cemented in the annals of hip-hop history. It was during his

time as a member of seminal Detroit group Slum Village however that ranks as among

his greatest. His work with rappers Baatin and T3 would be a strong influence upon

modern rappers like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, and earn widespread critical

praise, and comparisons to other legendary groups like A Tribe Called Quest. In

speaking retrospectively on their most famous album "Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1", The Roots'

drummer Questlove has said of the release that it "single-handedly birthed neo-soul."

J Dilla has been gone for over 10 years now, and Slum Village has moved on from their

time with the legendary beatsmith, recruiting new members along the way. Despite this,

new Dilla compositions are still being discovered, and his legacy continues to be shared

and celebrated with a modern hip-hop audience. Ne'Astra Music Group now presents a

new compilation of rare Dilla material: Vol. 0. Ten tracks featuring the classic Slum

Village lineup of Dilla on vocals and production, with Baatin & T3 also on the mic,

collected by modern SV member Young RJ from unreleased material and demos

recorded between 1994 and 1997. The knowledgable hip-hop head may recognize key

tracks from the circulated EPHCY Sessions, while others have never seen the light of

day. A piece of hip-hop history that would have otherwise wallowed in

obscurity, until now.
