Atmosphere – “Shoulda Known” (play)
The Twin Cities dynamic duo of rapper Slug and producer Ant, together known as Atmosphere, has a well earned rep for superior lyrics and floods of dope musical ideas. “I’ve got a restraining order against Satan’s daughter, and I keep it at the bottom of this Jameson and water” declares Slug on “Shoulda Known.” An unflinching gaze into the abyss of addiction and madness over a sickly compelling synth bass loop you can almost taste. Brilliant, original work.
