But ten months and change after T3, Illa J and Young RJ continued the SV legacy through a more than decent mix tape, The Dirty Slums, the boys are back at it again.
The sequel to Dirty Slums - you guessed it, Dirty Slums 2 - has just dropped today, stitched together by the mighty Mick Boogie and no doubt boasting some jams.
I say no doubt, as I haven't listened - I'm posting this in the knowledge that if I can't find some good in a Slum Village release (even if the line up is different), my musical world is on the wane.
DS2 features cameos from Guilty Simpson, Joe Scudda, Baatin (R.I.P) and Rapper Big Pooh (no matter how many times I type that name I still can't help but smirk... so mature).
Check out some of the early album cuts ('Riot', 'The Worlds Is Yours and 'Decadence') below, or head to DJBooth.net to download Dirty Slums 2 in it's entirety.
