In preparation for our forthcoming Slum Village interview, the official visuals for “Tainted” off SV’s 2002 album Trinity (Past, Present, and Future). Trinity marked SlumVill’s first album with Elzhi on their official roster and Dilla off it (although he did handle production on three cuts). “Tainted” juxtaposes the different styles contained within the then new-look Slum Village: T3′s consonant-heavy rhythmic flow, Baatin’s high-pitched incisiveness (R.I.P.), and Elzhi’s quick-witted smoothness– AND it’s got Dwele on the hook. The track was a musical blessing from other-worldly drummer and sometimes-hip-hop-producer Karriem Riggins, a close friend of Dilla who has also done work with Erykah Badu, Madlib, KanYe, Common, and more.
