I’m super blown right now. I can’t believe that Baatin has passed. Most everybody has already heard and I really can’t add anything to it. I just remember when DJ Impulse first got the Slum Village white labels a couple years before they dropped Fatastic Vol. 1 and I was blown away. The original Slum was a HUGE influence on my style and how I make records. I always hoped that we’d get Baatin back in Slum for good and that things would work out.
Since I never met him I won’t speak on it in length but I think it’s worth checking this video that Black Milk put up recently.
