When speaking on the similarities between Boston and Detroit T3 lets us know that he is coming out with a techno rap album after the release of the next Slum Village joint, which Young RJ goes into great details on. Coming out this Summer and titled “Yes” it will feature a slew of unheard J-Dilla beats and feature artists such as De La Soul, Bilal, BJ The Chicago Kid, Jon Connor, & a whole lot more.

Heading back into the history of the group, Dart brings up Baatin and the his unreleased album Titus. T3 lets us know that they have a lot of unreleased records from Baatin that they have not released as its not for them to decide what to do with them. They are letting his family decide if they want to put any of it out but they would gladly assist in that process if they decided to.
