It’s been a rough road for the members of Slum Village.With two of the original members, J. Dilla & Baatin, now deceased, the group soldiered on with original member T3 continuing on with new member Elzhi.
However it seems that it’s all come to a grinding halt with Hex Murda, Elzhi’s manager, confirming to XXL that Elzhi is no longer with the group, and that the group’s forthcoming Villa Manifesto, which brought Baatin back to the group and featured beats from J Dilla, would be its last.
For all intents and purposes concerning eLZhi, Slum Village is defunct. This is the last SV LP. We look forward to bringing you eLZhi’s solo project, The Feed. Until then, check him out on Black Milk’s new opus, Album Of The Year, [in stores] 9/14.
The group lost it’s producer and MC, J. Dilla, in 2006 due to complications from lupus. Another original member, Baatin, died in 2009.
Villa Manifesto is due out on July 27th.
