They have a few options making it difficult not to pull the trigger already. Check it out here right here. Can’t wait to hear Kanye West.

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.
