Legendary hip-hop act Slum Village will headline the Detroit Invades Austin Official SXSW Showcase. The show will be the trio’s first SXSW appearance. Super-producer Jay Dilla’s brother, Illa J of Slum Village will be hosting the event along with Marv Won.

Slum Village are known for slinging funky, old-school, soul-filled hip-hop stylings pioneered by early 90′s underground icons like A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul. Slum Village formed in the mid-’90s and gained recognition with their debut album Fantastic, Vol. 2, an album featuring appearances from D’Angelo, Q-Tip, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Over the years, the hip-hop outfit has endured the loss of founding member Jay Dee and MC Baatin, but have continued to persevere, demonstrating their passion and dedication to the art of hip-hop.
