This Dilla driven classic is available for RSD 2021 in a one-time only golden pearl splatter vinyl pressing. The contributions of J Dilla to the world of hip-hop can’t be overstated, and nowhere is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, (Alongside rappers T3 and Baatin) Dilla provided the group’s distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip hop legend having produced cuts for Common, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Fantastic Volulme 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work. For RSD 2021 Ne’Astra Media Group presents the album in 20th anniversary edition with a deluxe obi-wrap and an exclusive colored vinyl pressing.
