Originally started by three childhood friends Baatin, T3 and rapper and producer J Dilla from the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit. This group has seen an incredible amount of lineup changes and deaths since its beginning. Despite the lineup changes and tragedy, they have kept going strong and moving forward as the industry changes and bends. Currently, members include T3, from the original lineup, working alongside Young RJ and Illa J.
Their latest mix tape, Dirty Slums 2, is being released this Friday, January 25th at the Majestic Theatre. This performance also marks the group's 20th anniversary and they have invited Big Pooh and Clear Soul Forces along to share the stage. Doors are at 9 p.m. and tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door.
