TRACK: Slum Village - "Tell Me What You Want"


The late, great J Dilla is perhaps best known for his beat-making chops, but the producer also had a prominent role in the group Slum Village, in which he doubled both on production and as an MC. Before the group was called Slum Village, they were Ssenepod, or "dopeness" spelled backwards. Shortly after their name change, they recorded this track entitled "Tell Me What You Want" (not to be confused with the track "Tell Me" from Slum Village's sophomore album Fantastic, Vol. 2). Apparently, Dilla didn't own a sampler at the time of this recording, so the beat we're hearing was made via a "pause and record" tape approach. Hear the previously unreleased track below.
