iTunes Review

In 2000, Atmosphere released two vinyl-only EPs, whose covers formed the front grill of a Ford truck when placed side by side. Shortly after, the crew packaged select songs from those EPs with new tracks — some referencing a love interest named Lucy — for this full-length release. Lucy Ford marked the first time Atmosphere consisted of just one MC, Slug, and the poetic frontman made the most of the spotlight. The result was a collection of smooth, jazzy productions (supplied almost exclusively by Atmosphere’s beatsmith Ant) that saw Slug playing insightful observer (“Between the Lines”), boastful b-boy (“Guns and Cigarettes”), and gripping storyteller (“Nothing But Sunshine”). Of course, there are also plenty of tracks about women — a trademark that set Atmosphere apart from other indie-rap groups of the time and led many to categorize the duo’s music as emo-hop — standouts include “Don’t Ever F*****g Question That” and “The Woman with the Tattooed Hands.”  A hidden track, “Homecoming,” is tacked on to the final song (“Nothing But Sunshine”) and featured a meeting of two indie-rap icons, New York City’s El-P and Minneapolis’ Slug, with each MC waxing poetic about his hometown.

A hip-hop group from Minneapolis, Atmosphere centers around rapper Slug (aka Sean Daley). The son of a black father and a white mother who divorced when he was a teenager, Slug became entranced with hip-hop, graffiti, and breakdancing, and formed the Rhymesayers collective (originally known as Headshots) with two high-school friends -- Siddiq Ali (Stress) and Derek Turner (Spawn). After some early gigs as Urban Atmosphere, where Slug DJ'ed behind Spawn's rhyming, the pair hooked up with producer...
