Atmosphere

We might as well break it to you now: this category was a litmus test for readers. Unlike other alternative publications that dig deep to find value in vapid MTV MCs like T.I., Lil Wayne, and Flo Rida, we sought to block from thePhoenix.com all who deemed any such schmuck an acceptable selection for this category. But instead you chose Atmosphere — the Minneapolis tag team of rapper Slug and producer Ant, who have taken it upon themselves to keep alive honesty and basic boom-bap principles long ago abandoned by mainstream practitioners. Slug might be a bit of an emotional softie — if ever there was a contemporary white LL Cool J, he’s it — but the man packs House of Blues–size venues nationwide with obsessed college chicks and dudes who want to be him, and that’s pretty hard to hate on.
