[Review] Atmosphere @ Stubb’s!

Hip hop heads Atmosphere rolled back into Austin, and we were there to get some sick pictures. As always, Slug, Ant and crew rocked their set, with their more soul and blues infused sound, and Slug brings the crowd together as the rhyme-spitting front-man. If you missed out this time, make sure to catch these guys the next time they come around.

[Leaked] Atmosphere | “Just For Show”

We were just sent an “official” leak of a track of Atmosphere‘s new and long-awaited album, The Family Sign. It has a laid-back beat, with funky organs and hand claps. Get your hands on it, yo.

Atmosphere will be headlining The Family Tour, which will stop off in Austin on May 2. Blueprint, Grieves with Budo, Musab the Artist, and DJ Abilities will be there, too.

MC Eyedea of duo Eyedea & Abilities passes away

Announced via Facebook, award-winning freestyle emcee Eyedea of the hip hop duo Eyedea and Abilities passed away on Sunday. BC had the pleasure of interviewing him last year when Eyedea and Abilities were supporting Atmosphere on tour. Though we only spoke briefly, we remember him as being very funny and quick-witted, and an all-around nice guy, not to mention an amazing emcee. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.

Atmosphere | “Freefallin'”

It’s been a while since the Minneapolis-based hip hop duo Atmosphere released anything. Sure, there have been a couple of free download-only EPs (both of them kick major ass), but there hasn’t been an official release since 2008’s When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.

“Freefallin'” is laid back summer jam, complete with rocking guitar riffs and Slug’s witty and quick rhymes. It’s a part of a collection Atmosphere EPs, released in one package on Rhymesayers, entitled To All My Friends, Blood Makes The Blade Holy: The Atmosphere EPs.
