RIP Baatin

Monday, August 03, 2009 | |

35-year-old Baatin, co-founder of the game-changing hip hop group Slum Village with his high school friend J. Dilla (RIP), died yesterday in Detroit. After their sophomore album, Trinity, Baatin left the group only to rejoin for their upcoming September release, Villa Manifesto. Our thoughts are with his family and the community in Detroit. Rest in Power Baatin!
