Lupe Fiasco & Jack Splash Animate Life Into Baatin Via Upcoming Film
The loss of Slum Village member Baatin earlier this year was a great loss for the hip hop community and Miami based rapper/producer/singer Jack Splash is keeping the late rapper’s memory alive via his upcoming album and an animated short film.
According toÂ XXL, Splash has a song dedicated to Baatin on his forthcoming album titled Heir To The Throne, Vol 1 which hits stores on November 11th.
Baatin was a close friendÂ and mentor to Splash. Splash claims Baatin saved his life in a time of need and reminisces on the song “Baatin (Missing U)“.
“When I lost my hope and I could not do it/It was you, Baatin, that got me through it/And you told me if I fight for love they gon’ fight this/Teardrops on the paper as I write this.,” Splash raps on the song.
Splash will also be releasing an animated short film which is inspired by Baatin. Lupe Fiasco will be voicing the film’s main character.
