The Capital S-V-E-E

Yo, this mix tape is aight. I still think the S is one of the best outfits out. People still can't touch Volume 2.

That is on of THE best records since the end of the Golden Age.

Now that they are off Capitol it's gonna be interesting to see how they flip it.

Check out the joint 'It'z your World'

I'll add the links in a second.

Was on Mr. Mom duty so I didn't get a chance to post today AND my computer is falling apart (should've known better to open that Paris Hilton link)

Thankfully my man Greg Nice hooked me up with his old laptop so I am as the say, "back in effect once again"

the official press release Kim "whoop that" Trick

-----------------

Rising from the rugged streets and rich musical tapestry of Detroit, Slum Village is poised to carry on the old school, funk, and soul-filled hip-hop torch of genre pioneers A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and the Pharcyde. Growing up in the Conant Garden neighborhood of Detroit and forming during high- school days at Detroit's Pershing High School, MCs Baatin, Jay Dee, and T3 quickly garnered praise and recognition in the local underground scene. In the mid-'90s, Jay Dee became part of the hip-hop elite as a member of the Ummah, the production team responsible for multiple hits by Q-Tip, A Tribe Called Quest, D'Angelo, the Pharcyde, De La Soul, and Common, as well as remixes for Janet Jackson and Brand New Heavies. In 1998, Slum Village gained further recognition as an opening act for A Tribe Called Quest's farewell tour. Two years later, after some record-industry politics, the group released Fantastic, Vol. 2, and an album featuring appearances from D'Angelo, Q-Tip and DJ Jazzy Jeff. For fans with an ear to the underground and a few questions concerning the whereabouts of Fantastic, Vol. 1, the trio assumed an alias (J- 88) to release Best Kept Secret.

I haven't seen it actually. I am honestly not that interested in the come-uppance of a Memphis pimp.
