Slum Village My Life
- Words: Phil Phloe
- Label: Barak
SV have always recognized the hard Detroit blocks they hail from, a world they describe in Panorama-vision on "Ghetto Movie." It‘s a close-to-the-edge world where the weak get fed to the sharks, criminals and cops play out drama in the streets. "EZ-Up" is Slum‘s other face-thug lovers that hang "shortie in the club" flirtations on hooky R&B chorus-addled instrumentals. One foot in the mainstream, one in the underground is how it‘s done nowadays.
