iTunes Review

Sorry, drama lovers, but "Kanye West," from Atmosphere's eighth album, isn't a diss track. Rather, it finds rapper Slug—one of hip-hop's most beloved journeymen—reflecting on love, life, and parenthood. So it goes on Southsiders, an album that boldly grabs hold of hip-hop's third rail: getting old. "Gotta be a model civilian/And get your name printed on a bottle of pills and/Spill your guts into a Dixie Cup," Slug raps on "The World Might Not Live Through the Night." He may be a decade removed from the vanguard Atmosphere once occupied, but he remains an incisive lyricist, and his grown-man reflections still pack a punch. So do the boom-bap beats by longtime producer Ant, as reliable as an old Chevy. Fatherhood and family life have transformed Slug, but he reminds us some thing never change: "Been a few years since the last cigarette/But if you put your finger inside the flask, it's still wet."

I miss old Atmosphere.... This album is sadly overrated. Coming from a long time fan

Good album for what it is. I'm 37 and have listened to Atmosphere since 1999. Have seen them live 4 times and have bought everything and it's just getting old to me. Guess I'm not the target audience anymore. Slug doesn't wow me anymore the way he once did. If your 14-25 and have only recently discovered these guys and the honeymoon hasn't worn off you'll probably love this no matter what. If your musical taste has evolved past what the last 3 albums offered you may not.

Thank you Shawn. Thank you Anthony.

12.99 is a pretty small price to pay for some sanity these days.

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...
