Minneapolis duo Atmosphere rolls in very different circles than Kanye West, but they’ve got more than simply a region in common with the Windy City hip-hop heavyweight. Coming on the heels of early March’s Bitter, the second single off the group’s next full-length finds Slug channeling Yeezy’s indomitable self-confidence, along with his non-f**k-giving attitude, as he deals with the doubt and discouragement coming from a woman in his life. Though he and West are both known to have an affinity for sped-up soul samples, Ant chooses not to take advantage of that synergy, instead serving up a moody, downbeat groove centered around a fuzzed-out guitar loop. How about it, readers: have the Twin Cities vets done this cut’s namesake proud? If you’re leaning toward the affirmative, you’ll most definitely want to cop their Southsiders LP on Tuesday, May 6, when it hits record stores and online retailers via Rhymesayers Entertainment.
