11. Slum Village, Fantastic Vol. 2

A cleaned-up update of their unreleased debut album, Slum's first official release in 2000 is the perfect primer on your favorite producer's favorite rapper-producer, the late J. Dilla, and the Detroit sound in general. Clever hooks and routines from him, Baatin and T3 were the ideal chaser for his beats' ethereal, off-kilter knock.
