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 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 GlasperCordaeEric RobersonLarry JuneSango, 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.

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

Currently wrapping up their 28 date FUN Since 92 Tour, Slum Village is set to join Rakim and Talib Kweli for Panic In La on May 15. The duo will also join SZA and Jack Harlow in Louisville, Kentucky for the Gazebo Festival on May 26.
