Recently picked up this great new album from Atmosphere after listening to it in a buddy’s car. Lyrics and beats are solid as always. For an in-depth review, check out Pitchfork Media. I agree that the lyrical content is a bit of departure from Slug’s usual, but I don’t think it helps him out of “indie-rap territory”–nor is that a weakness. Slug is one of too few rappers willing to rhyme about topics that go deeper than how sick their flow is, or how everyone else is a suckah MC. In this world, that means he’ll stay indie.
