Is Atmosphere’s Slug The Ultimate Rap Dad? Check Out Southsiders (Video)
Released back in May, Atmosphere’s seventh studio album Southsiders is the latest work from Slug and Ant’s band. The Minneapolis, Minnesota duo’s sound has greatly changed since their late 1990s Soul-sampling introduction, but Slug’s witty wordplay, and constant homages to late ’80s and early ’90s Hip-Hop stay strong.
The title track from the album is some classic Rap bravado about staying true to where you’re from. However, as has been the case over the last five years, Atmosphere’s visual companion really attracts new eyes. In a Twin Cities suburb, Slug and Ant pull their Caddies up, and keep it extra cool, for the kids. Slug, who is a proud father in real life, uses his youthful energy and his deadpan expressions alike, showing that he’s forever young, and a B-boy till he dies.
The Rhymesayers co-founders keep things fun in the Southside.
