This week true Hip Hop fans the world over paid tribute to the late Titus “Baatin” Glover of Detroit’s acclaimed group, Slum Village. Two tributes and the funeral took place over the course of the previous week and a half since his untimely passing at age 35, with another tribute to take place on 08.14.09 at Detroit’s 27th Annual African World Festival.
