Watch Rare Footage of J Dilla and Slum Village in Clip From New Detroit Hip-Hop Doc
You know us. And you know when it comes to digging up rare J Dilla gems, whether they be of the visual of audible sort, we’re out here doing the dirty work. In today’s case, we didn’t have too much to unearth some gold. Ahead of the release of the Detroit hip-hop doc, The Unseen — A Detroit Beat Tape, a vintage clip of J Dilla and Slum Village onstage has been put to the unreleased instrumental “Ghetto Wish,” suite most well-versed donut eaters have likely heard already in their own excursions through the internet’s back alleys for the unheards.
The Unseen, slated for release this Friday, February 3rd, compiles archival footage from Justin Kovar to chart Hitsville’s impact and sonic stamp on hip-hop by way of some of the most influential producers the culture’s ever known. The film is directed by Gus Sutherland (of ALL EARS fame) and will feature an original soundtrack from Ta’Raach. Get your first taste of The Unseen – A Detroit Beat Tape with this rare clip of J Dilla and Slum Village down below and catch the full documentary this Friday via LOVETURL.
