Outta nowhere comes a brand new Atmosphere song. We all have a better half, it’s just that some of them are absolutely insane for one week out of each month. All we want is some love and in return we just get the big piece of chicken. Peep the new joint and happy and healthy New Years to all of you. –Philaflava

Exclusive Interview: Slug (from Atmosphere)

I’ll admit I was a late bloomer when it came to Atmosphere. But once I gave them a legitimate shot, I became immersed in their music. Ant is an accomplished producer and an intricate part of their success; whereas Slug is probably considered the groups’ Jagger. The fact remains, as an emcee, he is truly one of the best storytellers hip-hop has today. Fun-loving, generous, guarded, mysterious and occasionally malevolent might describe Slug the rapper, but on this week’s Tuesdays with, I sat down with Sean Daley, the person, to discuss, well just about everything.


Jason Gloss: You’ve collaborated with a lot of artists over your lengthy career. Doom, Eyedea, Print, Vakill, Brother Ali, Sage Francis, Evidence, Murs, Aesop Rock to KRS-One and Buckshot, so which collabo would you consider your personal favorite?


Slug: I’m not sure I’ve ever really had a favorite collaboration with anyone. I prefer making music with friends for the memory that it creates. Songs are cool and fun and shit, but the best part of collaborating is the friendships.


Honestly, I don’t even know if I can play the favorite game when thinking about my music. I kinda feel the same way towards all of my songs, like they’re my kids. It’s like I have a thousand kids. Some are smarter than others, some are cleaner or better adjusted or whatever and some are just complete idiots that I keep locked in the basement.


Atmosphere has a shitload of releases, which one do you find yourself going back to the most?


The only time I ever go back to the catalog is when I need to learn something for the show. Sometimes we’ll decide to pull out some old shit, so I will then go back and peep to see if I even remember the words. Other than that, I leave the past in the past. I find a good laugh in the idea of any rapper rolling around bumping a record they released a few years ago.

EL-P: I was asking people who follow me on Twitter about who the most anti downloading/digital music musicians were and we landed on Metallica (who I dont give a shit about) and Prince (who is one of my biggest influences). For fun, I put this thing together comprised of Metallica’s “Unforgiven Part 2″ and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

This actually exists.
