For those of you who aren't hip to Baatin, he was one of the original three members of Slum Village, J Dilla's original group. He passed away Saturday, at the tender age of 35. This leaves only T3 as the last remaining original member. The current Slum Village lineup also includes Elzhi and Illa J (Dilla's brother.) A major part of the Detroit hip-hop scene, Baatin will be missed. Be sure to grab SV's Fan-Tas-Tic (Vol. 1) - its a staple of any hip hop collection.
Rest Easy, Baatin.
