If you don't know who Baatin is of the Hip Hop group Slum Village...Then there is a problem. This man had an impeccable style, ridiculous flow and beautiful spirit. Today marks one year since his passing and Hip Hop lovers all over the world are sending him praises. He was born in Detroit, Michigan and there he met two other dudes from around the way, T3 and J Dilla, and created one of the greatest Hip Hop groups of all times. Being that I was just in Detroit last weekend and I was able to get a feel for the city that I always had so much respect and love for, musically, it was only right that I pay tribute to this great man.
We miss you, Baatin! We will continue to RAISE IT UP! Peace and ♥
P.S. Slum Village just released their new album, Villa Manifesto, last Tuesday which includes material from T3, Dilla, Baatin and Elzhi...Simple amazing!
