R.I.P. Baatin

“Maybe its that nigga Titus
Maybe its me
Maybe hes part of the group (the) S and the V
Maybe my name is rasaul rassi
Maybe Im Christ? 
Maybe the sun
The one…” – Baatin

RIP Baatin

Slum Village co-founder and lyrical wordsmith, Titus “Baatin” Glover passed away Saturday August 1st in his home town Detroit.  Baatin wasn’t the best known emcee and he might not be on your bogus lists of top 5 dead or alive.  He was an original with his style.  No one can say anyone sounded like him, a key figure in a group that made an impact on hip-hop, during an era where a lot of todays legends were in their prime.

The 35 year old emcee was found dead in his home, autopsy results are still pending as to the cause of death.  Baatin and the remaining members of SV were working on a new album titled “Villa Manifesto” while he also went out on tour with Rock The Bells.  A sad day in the Motor City and a sad day in Hip-Hop, Baatin your gonna be missed.
