Slum Village Drop ‘F.U.N’ Album

Slum Village returns with ‘F.U.N’, their first new album in nearly ten years, featuring Robert Glasper, Larry June, Cordae, and more.

From the intimacy of J Dilla’s basement in Detroit’s Conant Gardens to the top of the Billboard charts, Slum Village’s innovative sound has helped shape Hip-Hop for generations.

After nearly a decade hiatus, founding member T3 and rapper/producer Young RJ continue the seminal group’s legacy as a duo and mark their triumphant return today (5/3/2024) with the highly anticipated album ‘F.U.N’.

Blending the nostalgic grooves of Disco with Jazz and modern Hip-Hop, the new album reflects Slum Village’s evolution over the years while paying homage to their origins with fresh new energy.

T3 explains that the creative process for this album “began with collecting old Disco records.

RJ adds that they “wanted to just try something new, so we focused on making Disco-inspired music.

With the help from star-studded guest features such as Robert Glasper, Cordae, Eric Roberson, Larry June, Sango, and many others, ‘F.U.N’ delivers a dynamic listening experience that pushes boundaries and serves as a testament to the power of experimentation and creativity in modern music.

This one is for the day-one Slum fans and contemporary music enthusiasts alike.

Slum is still here. We’re still relevant and we’re still trying to push the envelope… Sometimes people put too many rules on music, and without sounding cliche, we wanted to just have fun with [this album]. So, in three words: Fuck U Niggas.” –T3

‘F.U.N’ serves as the first new Slum Village album since 2015’s critically acclaimed ‘Yes!‘ and is available now to stream and cop on all major digital streaming platforms via Ne’Astra Music / Virgin Music Group.
