In Hip Hop History Today “Slum Village released Best Kept Secret” July 31, 2000
Best Kept Secret is an album by J-88 (an alias for Slum Village). Released prior to Jay Dee’s departure from Slum Village, the album is the missing link between Fantastic 1 and Fantastic 2, along with a few remixes by producers Madlib, and IG Culture. Although much of the material was previously unreleased, two of the tracks, “The Look Of Love Pt. 1” and “Keep It On”, remain virtually unchanged from the versions found on Fan-Tas-Tic (Vol. 1). Listen to a track off the project “The Things You Do” above.
