Atmosphere and Evidence Tour
Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Atmosphere has been a driving force in independent hip hop for 20 years.
Rapper Slug (Sean Daley) and DJ/producer Ant (Anthony Davis) were the first to put Twin Cities hip hop on the map and became the co-founders of independent label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Frequently touted as emo rap, Slug's brutally honest, poetic musings are often extremely personal and socially mindful, managing to traverse topics such as relationships, love, and the trappings of modern society to the soundtrack of melodic blend of blues, soul and gospel samples with vintage analogue synths. Joining Atmosphere will be Grammy-winning rapper and producer Michael “Evidence” Perretta. Having spent the better part of his career touring the globe and selling an impressive number of records, he’s produced tracks for the Beastie Boys, Linkin Park, Defari, Planet Asia and more, including co-production on Kanye West’s debut The College Dropout, which earned him his Grammy. Additionally, 2011 saw the release of his long-awaited sophmomore album Cats and Dogs, which featured appearances from hot names The Alchemist, DJ Premier, Statik Selektah and loads more.
