The Black Vibes website is reporting that Baatin, famed as a member of popular rap group Slum Village, died yesterday. The passing of Baatin comes right as B had reunited with remaining SV members Elzhi and T3 to record "Villa Manifesto" for a September 22nd release date. SV had just released the single off that album "Cloud 9" with former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius. Baatin a/k/a Titus Glover was previously diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression, all of which contributed to his previous leave of absence from the group.  Talib Kweli had this to say on Twitter: "I'm at a loss right now. Hi-Tek was set to dj for Slum Village tonight. RIP Baatin. More influential than you can imagine. Slum Village forever." We'll bring you more details when they are available.
