J Dilla x Burn Rubber x LeRoy Jenkins x Toy Watch

December 17, 2008

I found this @ BurnRubberDetroit.com. I saw the sample a couple months ago and it’s a must have.

Well here it is folks. The long over due J Dilla time piece, designed by Upendo for LeRoy Jenkins. Toy Watch Company got down with the manufacturing, and Rick from Burn Rubber Detroit made the whole connection happen. So its technically a 3 way colab.

Proceeds from the watch go to Ma Dukes. Burn Rubber and LeRoy Jenkins is making sure of this! Release is slated for Mid Febuary, we got TONE to get us these dope shots. Because of tuff market times we are only gona be able to have a small number produced. So please let us know if yall are feeling it and pre-order with us. [email protected].

T3’s Underground Rap 101

 Here’s a little something from T3’s The Night Gallery. T3 explains how Slum Village got their start and drops a demo version of the track “5 Ela” at the end.

Underground Rap 101To make it in the underground, it usually means starting by getting buzz through an emcee battle, a mixtape, local radio show buzz or basically word-of-mouth interest.Then the next big opportunity is to do shows in your area and also start relationships with fans through the internet. This is a Digital age people, the Myspace age. Unlike when I came into the game. I mean I had to make sure I got my cassette tape in the right hands at the right time. Not quite from the 8-track age, but damn near. LOL! You know the story of how Slum came to be, right? Well, We got our tape in the hands Q-tip through Amp Fiddler, and that’s how JDilla got on as a producer and started out with the Ummah. At that time, Tip wasn’t really feelin the Slum Vibe, he was all about the beats. Then years later, like 4, we started making a name for ourselves but needed something to spur interest in the group on a national level. So we got inspired at the Detroit Hip-Hop Shop. Proof’s group, 5Ela was in the store bragging about their new tape that was coming out, of which James Yancey aka J Dilla had produced all the tracks by the way. And, we felt like Damn, what’s up with our tape? What are we doing. So, we decided that it was time to make our own album, better known as Fantastic Volume 1 . So, We rounded the gang up, slept in Jd’s basement and finished a 22 track album with some of the greatest hip-hop beats of all time in a week. Classic. Then, we gave it to Q-tip and played ou stuff again and this time he loved it. Then that tape made rounds through the Roots crew, D’angelo, Common, and the rst is histrory. It’s all about timing folks. They say Luck is where preparation and opportunity meet. That’s what it takes to be successful in this biz. The next step is to decide what works for you, staying on the Underground level, which can be profitable with a lot of hustle. Or, making that crossover leap…Good Luck.Listen to this unreleased remix called “5Ela” it was Slum Village, 5ela and Frank featured on the song. Here’s a little SV trivia. We were really lazy on our song titles some times or what we called just being “Cheap”…so the 5Ela song is that because we rapped with 5Ela. Then we got the Phat kat song on Vol.1, cuz we rapped with Phat Kat. We should of called Hold Tight, the Q-Tip song, but we started getting more creative on titles by Vol. 2.

Treats:This will only stay up until Thursday so u better check it now!
