Atmosphere – Southsiders

Atmosphere was once an anomaly. The way Slug wore his heart on his sleeve was rare, and his words combined with Ant’s beats helped define the underground, independent hip-hop movement of an entire era. Rhymesayers catapulted Minneapolis from a tight-knit local scene to a nationally recognized breeding ground for hip-hop talent, and Atmosphere has always been at the helm. Although the scene Atmosphere helped build remains strong, the genre has fragmented into such strange territory that the concept of “alternative” hip-hop doesn’t mean much anymore.
