Atmosphere – “Virgo” (Vevo Performance)

Twin Cities duo Slug and Ant release albums like they’re punching the clock at the office. As Atmosphere, the pair bring a workmanlike approach to their projects: ‘Mi Vida Local’ is their ninth album since 1997, with a few compilations and EP’s sandwiched between. Somehow Slug even manages to operate beloved hip-hop label, Rhymesayers Entertainment, home to underground heroes like Brother Ali, Dilated Peoples and Aesop Rock. Here, in an intimate setting at the Vevo studio, Slug takes on the current climate in America and his own mortality on the Zodiac-tinged “Virgo.” If it’s your birthday, blow out the candles but make sure you don’t waste your wish.

Executive Producer: Micah Bickham
Director: Bram Vandermark

  1. “I've got receipts made of scar tissue
    Got the vision of somebody going fishing in the dark
    When I start up the motor, it still turns over
    But nowadays, a little bit slower
    Never been afraid of getting older
    I'm much more nervous about these public servants
    Kill the lights and shut the curtains
    You ain't a real lion if you love the circus
    Looking at myself like, "What's the purpose?"
    That's when I started to hallucinate
    Tryna touch the surface and recuperate
    You should've seen the look on my face when I was losing my faith
    Y'all got me feeling hesitation, embarrassment
    I might be the last generation of grandparents…”

  2. May be one of my favorites, your music has helped me in so many ways. My depression and ptsd is very real and your music helps me cope on a daily, thank you

  3. I love this so much, it's that type of track that calls for lookin in Slug's face while he's saying the words, the sigh he takes at 3:12 made me tear up

  4. Slug? Dude? Chelation, y'all. like Sa-Roc sez, Third Eye Wide (cuz thats when the heart opens up for caring humans)
    en Faith? never gets lost, it just gets beat up sometimes, right? Keep soing those songs, Y'All ! YOU ARE PROMISED: music=love=lives forever ∃ π ~ ♬ ♪ ♥ ∞ ☮

  5. Thank you Slug. I still remember word for word when you and I spoke. You, most likely don't, its understandable. But if you read this, I appreciate the work you do and the person you are. Your viewpoint helps me be the best I can be.

  6. I saw this dude in west Rugrne pulled up in his tour bus, Haha I got nervous acted like I didn't notice lol…I like his energy, it feels soulfull.

  7. That hoodie tho!!! Reppin the CLE!!! My dude. Loved you guys and ryhmesayers for 17 years. Your music is like an allegory for my soul. I grew up on it. Ive seen you at least 5 times live. Always kill it. Proud of ya'll and your heart for music!! Mucho mucho love!

  8. You are a Leader of Men Slug. It's selfish to say, but i'm glad your fame doesn't stack up to your talent. Most people don't deserve what you have to offer, and i'm glad they are too oblivious to understand what they are missing in the first place.

  9. I’ve got a disgusting back pack I carried spray cans, 40s and drum sticks in. Slug did some handstyles on it when I met him. It Was one of the dopest days of my life to meet a man that’s lyrically help me survive day to day
