Iconic rap group SLUM VILLAGE will be no more after the release of its upcoming album.
The band, now comprising of Elzhi, Illa J and founding rapper T3, is putting the final touches to its latest project, Villa Manifesto - but the disc will be its last as Slum Village.
Breaking the news on his Twitter.com blog, T3 writes, "One more thing... this is the last Slum Village album."
The revelation comes a year after the death of original rapper Baatin, and four years since producer J Dilla, the third founding member, died from complications from a blood disease in 2006.
Villa Manifesto is due for release in July (10).
