Take It Personal (Ep 19: Atmosphere Tribute) with Slug

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Over the past two decades, Atmosphere has been touring the globe, making music, making fans and one member, especially, making babies. Hailing outta Minneapolis, Slug and Ant aren’t just a group, they’re Minnesota Nice! The slept-on beatmaker and storyteller have accumulated copious amounts of success throughout the years, so it was time Take It Personal took you on a tribute trip down Atmosphere lane. We cover the classics, the obscure, fan favorites and even some collaborations. We promise you, there will never be another Atmosphere tribute quite like this one. To further cement that, we invited Slug on the show to break bread with us. The 2-part interview plays throughout this 4+ hour tribute show. We delve into a different side of Sean Daley. We talk Al Franken, ironically, a day before the allegations came out. We talk critics, family, touring, Soundset, DJ Premier and some crazy stories like the time Rick Rubin was courting them. When you think Minnesota musicians, you immediately think of Prince, The Time, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and probably Bob Dylan, but after this show, we have to think Atmosphere will be right there with them.

Sounds Like The 90’s Volume 10

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Last month we were a little late with this so it’s only right we make up the difference by dropping this early. Volume 10 is full of heat rocks and should appeal to just about every kind of hip-hop fan out there. We got some new joints by Dynas, Baby Blak, Skyzoo, Ghostface, Masta Killa & Big Boi. Recently I discovered Fresh Daily and was taken back by his album that I had to lace ya’ll twice!

And if you forgot what its like to hear an emcee blackout make sure you listen to Ali’s “Best@it.” We appreciate feedback, good or bad so be sure to let us know what you love, hate or would like to hear on upcoming volumes.

And remember we’re always looking for gems to lace these compilations so be sure to email us heat @ blog.philaflava@gmail.com. And for coverage on current hip-hop make sure to visit our sister blog Steady Bloggin. Enjoy! –Philaflava

Props to Strategy for assisting in the tagging of all these tracks and of course Kalel. The man who has been the mastermind behind all these dope album covers for the past 10 months.

Unfortunately, Volume 10 will be the last for Kalel. He’s blowin’ up, making moves and leaving us for bigger and better things. We wish him the best and want to thank him for everything he’s done for T.R.O.Y.
