July's Artists, and changes. PT1

Okay, it's been a few months since I've done the artist, info, and download. So, this month Im going to do a few different artists in this blog. So this blog will be quite long.

The first artist is Atmosphere.


Atmosphere is an well known, and well respected underground rap group. The group formed in 1994 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The groups Members are, Slug[ Lyrics], and Ant[Beats/production]. Atmosphere has been around for fourteen years, and has been releasing albums for eleven years. The rap group released their debut album in 1997, which was titled "OVERCAST!". From there on they've released several other albums. These albums include; "Lucy Ford EP", "Se7en","God Loves Ugly", " Sevens Travels", "You can't imagine how much fun we're having", " When life gives you lemons you paint that shit gold", Aswell as a series of 12 "Sad Clown" EP's. The rap duo has had songs featured in video games, such as; Tony Hawk's underground 2, Need for Speed Underground 2, and Fight Night Round 3. For a short time, The song "Watch out" was featured on an, And1 comercial in 2005-2006.

The rap duo has come a very long way in the fourteen years since they formed. Their style has evolved over the years, getting better as they went, and still retaining their own original style. Slug, with his lyrical, storytelling style is incredible, and has a very unique way of rapping bout politics, and many other different themes. He uses his own past, or at times making up fictional characters to write a song about in order to stress a certain point or subject[check the album "When life gives you albums..you paint that shit gold!"]. Then ant, with his also extremely unique, instrumentals[beats]. His beats are dusty, and hooky, and are R&B informed, yet, never lose touch when they are behind slugs sometimes mannically depressed rhymes. The rap group are the people who are behind the Indie label "Rhymesayers Entertainment", which has many equally incredible artists on it. The rap duo has been mentioned in several different magazines, such as; Rolling Stone, Blackbook, Vice, Entertainment Weekly, And XLR&R. These magazines state many things about the rap duo.

"One can feel Atmosphere loosening modern hip-hop from its moorings and yanking it into some weirder and far more interesting place." - ROLLING STONE

"This Minneapolis indie rap hero has potential to spare, delivering taut, complex rhyme narratives with everyman earnestness." - ROLLING STONE

"Like it or not, Slug is reluctant king of emo-hop, the emerging alt-rap scene."

After their last album went indie triple platinum, these guys got offers from every major label in the business, but the chose to sign to Epitaph just to prove how punk rock they are. Ant's got beats, Mr. Dibb's got skills, Slug's the nicest guy in the world and the ladies, they love him. - Vice

With passionate inflection and pristine delivery, Slug toggles neatly among the poetic, preachy, and provocative, sometimes hitting all at once.
- Entertainment Weekly

"In this era of the hip hop anti-hero, there's no more unlikely candidate for universal stardom in the rap game than a gangly kid from Minneapolis….Slug is bringing a new DIY spirit and, gulp, emotional vulnerability to a hip hop scene currently orbiting out of control in a materialistic galaxy." - XLR8R
