Peace Fam,
I realize I haven't spoken with you in a while (long story for another time) and I'm sorry I picked such a sad occasion to reconnect with you. I found out a few hours ago that Titus "Baatin" Glover of the Detroit supergroup Slum Village has passed away. He was 35. There aren't any details as to what caused his death but my condolences and prayers are with his fam.

Baatin was a founding member of the Conant Gardens based group Slum Village along with James "J Dilla" Yancey (who also tragically passed away in 2006) and Robert "T3" Altman. He appeared on their first albums Fantastic Vol. 1 & 2, and Trinity (which spawned SV's first major hit single "Tainted". After Trinity, Baatin left the group and was replaced by Jason "Elzhi" Powers. It was recently announced that Baatin was rejoining SV for their next album. I never got to meet Baatin as he was already out of SV when I got involved with the Detroit music scene and Barak Records (SV's label home at the time) in particular. However it was clear that Baatin was a one of a kind talent and in my opinion had an ill voice that set him apart from any rapper from the D. Not only could he rap, but he was a talented singer as well. His verse on "Climax" is still one of my favorites.

I'd be crazy not to mention what I know is on everyone's mind: Is there some kind of weird omen that is haunting the musical talent in my hometown of Detroit? Dilla and D-12's Proof both met their demise at a young age. MC Breed is from Flint but Detroit still claims him. Dorian Fiddler (son of my big bro Amp Fiddler) died this year as well. Honestly I don't believe in such evil things as omens and curses. I do believe this to be the opportune time for us to create some type of open dialogue with each other and most importantly with our Creator. I wish SV continued success in the wake of this tragedy. The remaining members are extremely talented and I know they'll bounce back and continue to make great music. Rest In Peace, Brother Baatin.

Birmingham Hip Hop Classics From The Vault- All I Ever Wanted feat. Attitude, Slave Ghost, Chase, Supreme, and Big Mal

Peace Fam! I know it's been a while since I've posted. It's been an exhausting couple of weeks. So far, not only have we had to endure the disaster (and ultimate demise) of City Stages and the racism of Transformers 2, but now the deaths of Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and... wait for it... brace yourself... the King of Pop Michael Jackson. WHAT???? No I did not stutter. As of Thursday, June 25, 2009 2:26pm Pacific Coast Time, MJ is no longer with us. Sounds strange even saying it, huh? Well, the lesson learned here is that you can't take your legacy for granted. At least that's what I'm gaining from it. This has prompted me to start sharing the many gems from my vault that further solidify the legacy of Birmingham hip hop. We may not have invented it, but like my man S-Fly would say, we definitely set the standard. Most folks forget about events that set the tone for modern Birmingham music such as The Eargasm, B Moe's Last Sunday, and of course The Diamond Soul XXXperience. To borrow a phrase from the great John Coltrane: "It'll never be done like that again". Anyway, I can't sit on this stuff any longer, so consider this the first of many entries into the Birmingham Hip Hop Classics From The Vault series. In the future I'll take you on a journey with music from Joint Effort, The Eargasmatics, Metaphizx, and (for the first time ever) live audio from past Eargasm and Diamond Soul Shows. I'll also share music from my past albums Supreme's Lounge (1997), The Sting (1998 never released), and The Marlon Malone Experience. Yeah this is deep, ya'll. The past twelve hours has had a profound effect on me. So now it's time to let the world know how we started this movement in B-Ham.

First up is a tune titled "All I Ever Wanted" which pretty much evolved from one of the many late night sessions over at my old crib. It had to be around '98 or '99 (from the sounds of the kit I was using I'll say '99). Featured on this cut are myself, Attitude, Slave Ghost, Chase (aka Lucky Lou) and Big Mal. The sound quality is gritty because it came off Tascam 8 track that had been through a flood. I'm thankful to even have this recording. Anyway, enjoy a piece of Birmingham hip hop history. Believe me, there's more where that came from. FYI: Attitude has gone on to be a major player in the industry, first being taken under Timbaland's wing and recording with Bubba Sparxxx, then carving his own niche as a platinum songwriter penning hits for (and appearing on) Nelly Furtado's Promiscuous album. Yeah, now that's history. Enjoy!

Peace Fam,

I was just watching a special on this on BET last week and decided to enter. Now I've been picked. Problem: The competition is Wednesday, June 24th and I need sponsors to get out to Denver, CO. I need your help fam. I've set up the "Send Supreme to the Beat Battle Fund". The goal is to raise $600 for the plane ticket. It doesn't matter how big or small the donation, every little bit helps.
