Q-Tip Assists Slum Village on ‘Hold Tight’ (Long Lost J Dilla Remix)


Slum Village’s 20th Anniversary the 1998 classic recording Fantastic Vol. 2 reveals additional relics from the original trio T3, “Baatin” & Jay Dee.

Opening with “Hold Tight” feat Q Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, we’re treated to a remix that was never released until now, produced by J Dilla himself. T3 says “the experience of listening to these songs, made all the hard work worth it”.

After much thought, Slum decided to release the material so fans can hear what has been enjoyed for years (privately) in-house. According to Young RJ (who joined Slum Village in 2010) “listening to the music gave me chills”.

Slum Village is re-emerging with a tour this summer, honoring this 20 year release. The group is now comprised of T3 and Young RJ, and the tour will feature special surprises along the way.
