scooped up "when life gives you lemons" and its fucking solid. First time through with live music, different avenue for Slug, but its pretty amazing. Just expanding the collection.More fucked up than a cricket in a hubcap

^^^You obviously have no clue what you are talking about. Who the fuck is FloRida? How many albums does KRS have? 20,25? Go crawl back under the rock from which you came from, listen to all of KRS One's albums (including Boogie Down Productions) and then put your worthless 2 cents in.

Oh yeah, been listening to Atmosphere more and more. Slug is no joke, but nowhere near the top of my list.

...but Flo Rida sold 636,000 downloads of his club/dance floor hit "Right Round"..."Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

Dook - it will be hard to find, but you should check out a cat called Lightnin' Rod. He released some stuff in the 70's which predated the whole hip hop scene by a decade. "Hustlers Convention" is unreal.

kinda sorta diggin the hell out of atmosphere right now, mix that a bud made, not sure what the hell is on it, started with god loves ugly and kept rockin with a bunch of [never thought i'd say it] really good musical fun rap.The blues has always been about taking your problems and turning them into something you can dance to, drink to and fuck to.
We're certainly not a blues band in any kind of purest sense, but to me Rock and Roll has always had it's roots in that tradition.

That's why I got the urge to shoot that pussy clit
And kill that infant, so what is my intent?
To show mothafuckas that livin' life ain't shit
I guess it gets real sick and eatin' bloody clit, the baby killa shit
Put'em in a grave with an empty 40 ounce bottle and won't even trip
Cause livin' with tha Tripple-Six
Ya learn to fuck devil in his mouth and eat the shit out of his bitch
And I admit: my brain is kinda sick
But now I'm like J. Dahmer, I'm chewin' up all the evidence
I killed to cure my fit, the human meat fix
Bitin' to the skin rips, that sick nigga, so sick
Livin' dead ever since...

Slick Rick is not even mentioned? thats redonkulus
04-16-2009, 07:06 PM #95
um, this thread is about Atmosphere, not Slick Rick..."Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

understood, but if youre going to say atmosphere is the "greatest rapper out there" you have to mention all the others. have you not been following? you have to mention other artists to compare in order to decipher whether or not "atmostphere" is worthy. and atmosphere is JUST OK. not even close to greatest. its actually ridiculous to even bring that up.

i love fools spouting "hip-hop" superiority who didn't even bother to read my first post, which stated:
"Okay, that might be going a bit far, but Sean Daly (aka Slug, aka 1/2 of Atmosphere) is one of the keenest MCs on the scene.
He's made a nice growth chart since his debut some 10 years ago, maturing and refining his craft with each effort."
I used the "Greatest Rapper Out There?" in the subject headline to draw people into the discussion. I never actually said that he was the GOAT.
And for the record, hip-hop is a culture, not a musical style. Those commenting on other great rappers (which, btw, I fully encourage), have RAP SENCE, not "hip-hop sense." To have the latter, one would also have to appreciate graffiti, breaking, and turntablism.
I think why I started this thread was because Slug has shown an interesting growth pattern. He started out kind of generic and has made steady growth both lyrically and stylistically. His love of the genre and the culture is apparent through not only his lyrics, but musical stylings.
Too often a lot of great MCs (think Slick Rick, Rakim, LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, and a ton of others) start out great and then seem to lose some of their power and charisma as they continue to put out albums. Quite a lot of the greatest rappers out there came out the gate with thunder and firestorms only to fizzle out the longer they stayed in the game. Slug came out slowly and has built up a steady momentum, improving his skills and character with each successive effort. Sure, he could very well burn out, but to date he has shown a nice growth pattern that few other artists (rap and other genres included) can lay claim to."Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

If you honestly think Lil Wayne is good at all just end your life now get it over with. Anything that ever made sense in his flow was written for him, now he just freestyles Autotuned Garbage on decent beats. I like Atmosphere, but not going to try and say anyone is the best. There are different classes or Rap(Hip Hop) Its like saying Fedor Emelianenko is better than Anderson Silva. They both are on top, but will never fight. Also, everyone perceives sound differently so voices beats everything appeals differently to people. Honestly though there is hardly any mainstream rap that is good anymore. I will name the 3 worst rappers of all time........
Lil "bitchass" Wayne (which I would knock the fuck out)
Kanye "crybaby" West (Which I would choke the fuck out)
Soulja "Never be a Man" Boy (Which I would stomp the fuck out)
Theres my 2 cents take it or leave it
Also if you didnt understand my analogy check those fighters out my top favorite MMA fighters.

God Loves Ugly and Lucy Ford EP are rad. Other than that, Atmosphere is pretty hit or miss.
I've seen disturbingly few mentions of Biggie on here:
Honeys wanna chat
But all I wanna know is where the paaaarty at
and can I bring my gat?
If not, I hope i don't get shot
Better throw the vest on my chest
Cause niggaz in a mess
Don't take nuthin but frontin for me to start somethin
Bukkin and Bukkin at niggaz like I was duck huntin
