Slum Village "Expressive" (ft. BJ the Chicago Kid, Illa J) (prod. by J Dilla)
Published May 12, 2015Detroit hip-hop vets Slum Village have finally affixed a firm street date for their long-developing Yes LP, and there's just a month to go before it goes live. Before we hit that June 16 arrival time, they have brought out another early preview, "Expressive."
The group get behind the track's deeply funky, tip-toeing bass line and the occasional smattering of strings, supplied from a vintage J Dilla beat, to weigh in on how they express themselves. This leads to illustrating a few sex techniques, as well as lines about keeping one's body a temple and elevating your mindscape to a higher plain.
BJ the Chicago is a little more direct, sending out his smoothly crooned to all the sexy, independent women around the globe. He then goes on to make a last-minute audio salute to Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner."
