While Slum Village’s lineup has experienced significant changes over the course of nearly three decades, OG member T3 and Grammy-nominated rapper/producer Young RJ have carried on the legacy of the seminal Rap group’s name over the course of 12 years. As the longest standing iteration of the group, their output consists of two mixtapes (2012’s Dirty Slums and 2013’s Dirty Slums 2), and two lauded albums between the years of 2013 and the second half of 2015 (Evolution and Yes!, respectively). At the tail end of their sold out European tour in April of last year, the duo announced their new album and teamed with the Bay’s Larry June and Detroit Soul OGs The Dramatics for the project’s lead single “Just Like You”.
Today, the album’s second single “Request” hit all major digital streaming platforms via Ne’Astra Music/Ingrooves. The new smooth and subdued Young RJ-produced track features chart-topping rapper/songwriter/producer and Big Sean collaborator Earlly Mac, and British Hip-Hop ensemble Abstract Orchestra.
