Slum Village frontman T3 released his new solo EP, Mr. Fantastic, via Delicious Vinyl yesterday (1.23.2020). Today (1.24.2020), the legendary Detroit emcee pays homage to his foundation and reminisces on the early days of his seminal group in the lyric video for the project’s title track, featuring a posthumous guest verse from his late co-founding groupmate Baatin.
“My favorite track is Mr. fantastic featuring Baatin. I wanted to set off this project by paying homage to Dilla and Baatin. I always rep the Slum brand wherever I go… When [Teeko and Ruckazoid] added the Baatin verse, it was surprising and heartwarming. It’s like his vocals fit perfectly.” –T3
Entirely produced by Teeko & Ruckazoid, with guest appearances from Illa J (J Dilla’s brother), Frank Nitt, among others, Mr. Fantastic marks the official close of the Slum Village chapter and the start of a new chapter for T3 as a solo artist.
