I'm afraid to listen to this album. Atmosphere and Minneapolis hipo-hip for life, but anyone that has been fans of Atmosphere for ten years would agree that he isn't getting any better. That said, I'm glad Slug and Ant get the recognition they deserve nationwide. No one more deserving other than the Doomtree crew as far as MN talent is concerned.
Whaaat? You sir are a good guy. His storytelling, metaphors, content has all gotten better. Ive followed atmosphere since lucy ford. I saw him before glu came out. And ive seen his probobly 4x since. While i do miss seeing him perform in tiny bars (blind pig) i believe he has gotten better with almost every release. The music he GIVES away is better than most emcees music. He releases so many eps, collaborations etc.
The family sign is no exception. Its pleasing to the ears, it has thought provoking lyrics and stories mixed with humor and bravado and it flows pretty seemlessly (except bad bad daddy as the reviewer mentioned)
If theres one person im a total fanboy of...its slug.
