Slum Village: Yes

Detroit-based collective Slum Village made their 12-track album Yes available to stream in its entirety this week. Featuring artists like Bilal, Black Milk, BJ the Chicago Kid and hip-hop royalty De La Soul, the record credits the late, great Jay Dee (a one-time SV member) as a producer on every track—and the sound is nothing if not Dilla. With hints of jazz, soul and plenty of clever lyrics, the album is effortless, smooth, dramatic at times, and sure to be touted as “real” hip-hop by many purists.
