If you know anything about hip-hop, you know that Slum Village rocks the mic for a cause. After dropping awe-inspiring projects over the years, the “Selfish” rappers are back with more progressive sounds on their upcoming Yes! album.
The 12-track offering finds T3 and Young RJ mixing clever rhymes over dreamy production by J Dilla. Songs like “Tear It Down” with Jon Connor and the jazz-inspired “Expressive,” featuring BJ The Chicago Kid, are just a few tracks that bring that old hip-hop feel back without sounding dated. The album also features Phife Dawg, Black Milk, Bilal, Frank Nitt and more.
You can pre-order Yes! over at iTunes and stream it here before the LP hits retailers on June 16.
