Although I have interviewed Slum Village two times before over the past years, I was excited to do another interview with them, as this formation consists of T3, Illa J and Young RJ. The last two are no strangers to Slum Village fans as they have always been a part of the SV family. At the moment they are touring in Europe, having done the Dillaville tour and following right up with the Evolution tour as their album Evolution was released in June of this year. The three Detroit natives talk about touring in the new formation, the feedback from the fans in Europe and advise anyone not to deal with any negativity. I can only agree wholeheartedly to that.

With special thanks to Frank Nitt.
