New Slum Village drops October 25th; Ringtones a week earlier


The new Slum Vill self-titled heater drops on 10/25. Everyone knows how big of a Slum fan (drunken tirade in Maryland anyone? Sorry D.)

The package will feature a bonus DVD and in a marketing move I am especially proud of the album will be available as ringtones on October 10th. In an innovative deal with Ringtone leader, Zingy, Room Service has put together a deal that will give the technologically adept Slum nerd a chance to peep the whole album 2 weeks before the rest of you plebes.

SCR Bullets (because who needs complete sentences?)

-J Dilla returns. Dilla and BR Gunna produced most of the album

-13 exceptional tracks and an up-close and personal DVD , discussing the changing lineup in the group

-no Capitol Records, this one os on the indie Barak, helmed by my man RJ Rice

Yo, I actually thought Detroit Deli was crazy hot.

This new single can't fcck with that Kanye lead single from their last album though. It's like a weirdo, left-field underground version of that. Similar subject matter but with an almost complete lack of commercial radio hit single potential.
