Mike Kic turned me on to Atmosphere. I was hanging out at his house when he slipped me a bunch of Atmosphere CDs and told me it was right up my alley.
I've only recently dived in, and now I can't get enough. I'm always going back to Atmosphere, a hip hop duo from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Slug drops the rhymes and Ant spins the wheels of steel.
If you like good hip hop and rap and aren't yet familiar with Atmosphere, it's time to catch up. Here's an early track to get you started. After this, you're on your own.
