Atmosphere In-depth Biography

Atmosphere} is a hip-hop} group from Minneapolis that 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 Rhyme Sayers Collective} with two high school friends -- Siddiq Ali} (Stress}) and Derek Turner} (Spawn}). After some early gigs as Urban Atmosphere}, where Slug} DJed behind Spawn}'s rhyming, the pair hooked up with producer Ant} (Anthony Davis}), as well as like-minded locals such as MC Musab}, Mr. Gene Poole}, and the Abstract Pack}, forming an underground hip-hop} clique dedicated to freestyling, clever and complex lyrics, and anti-gangsta positivity. In 1998, Atmosphere} released its debut album, Overcast!}, which quickly became regarded as an underground hip-hop} classic thanks to Slug}'s deeply personal, poetic musings, as well as Ant}'s bare bones -- but inventive -- production. The next Atmosphere} album was titled Sad Clown Bad Dub II}, a 2000 set originally sold while the group was on tour. (Now out-of-print, it's a highly sought-after collector's item). A year later, the group released Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs}, a collection of three EPs built around the theme of Slug}'s complicated relationship with his ex-girlfriend, the lost love of his life. The group has toured consistently, both at home and overseas; while Ant} usually doesn't accompany the group on the road, Mr. Dibbs} of the group 1200 Hobos} often joins in behind the turntables and Slug} is usually assisted on the mic by young rappers like the teenaged Eyedea}. In June 2002, the group -- down to the duo of Slug} and Ant} -- unleashed God Loves Ugly}, an 18-track effort that returned to previous themes ("F*@k You Lucy"}), but also contained the group's most pop}-friendly single to date, "Modern Man's Hustle."} In 2003, Atmosphere} returned with his fourth album, Seven's Travels}. ~ Dan LeRoy, All Music Guide
