Slum Village – Decadence (feat. Guilty Simpson)

New Slum Village is always welcome around these parts. Today we get a peek at what we’ll be hearing on the soon to be released, Mick Boogie hosted, Dirty Slums 2. Last year’s release of SV’s previous Dirty Slums mixtape was a huge comeback for the group with the new line-up, and it’s nice to see that they’re releasing more new material so soon.

“Decadence” was produced by the group’s newcomer, Young RJ, and features the always great, Guilty Simpson. The beat is the same style of the hard-knocking, gritty fashion that’s become the signature Slum Village sound of the past several years. Each verse completely uses the beat to its advantage giving everyone involved (T3, Young RJ, and Guilty Simpson) their own, much deserved spotlight.

The track is halfway edited. Sometimes words are censored and sometimes they aren’t. I don’t know if this is because of splicing verses at different times or if words are sometimes edited on purpose like on J Dilla‘s “Crushin’ (Yeeeeaah!)”.
