T3 FEAT. ILLA J – SLOW MO (PRODUCED BY JAKE MILLINER)
When we sit down to reflect about the current state of hip-hop music, we think about a chameleon art form that adapt to the new trends and market demand , by diversifying towards of “alternative” mixtures , sometimes flirting with pop music,sometimes encompassing trap sonorities.. This is a fact , whether you like it or not!For nostalgic hip-hop addicted like us, grew up with a steady diet of BlackMoon,GangStarr,Common,Slum Village,Digable Planets it’s always a pleasure to stumble upon dope new shit , performed by veteran hip-hop artists which try to stay true to their own craft.Well, Slum Village member RL Altman III aka T3 aka Trace , is one of those artist who deserve our respect for the work ethic,the humble approach and above all the attitude to bring to us excellent staff !T3 is currently working on his forthcoming album entitled Volume 3 , which will boast appearances from Que.D,Frank Nitty,Dank and Jay Dee’s brother Illa J among others. T3 gives some details about the new album:
“Volume 3 has a double meaning. It means my independence from Slum Village. It means T3, me, standing out on my own. I make sure that even with me out doing my own thing, I still have those lost members in my heart: J Dilla and Baatin, and I will always have them in my heart. And when I thought about making this project, I just sat down and thought about what made sense. And that’s what came to me, Volume 3”
