I've never heard any of their shit.... I must say that their album covers sorta put me off  :P
Like this one;

I know that I shouldn't judge shit by the looks,but sorry I can't help it... :-\ shit looks a little too "white" for me,if you know what I mean?

Shit, that's a classic cover and the underground classic album of course! Cover matches the title! Would you create a nice cover for an album titled ''God Loves Ugly''? Every Atmosphere album bang as fuck, much better than 80% of today's hip hop shit. No studio gangsters shit, just a nice music and nice lyrics that you've never heard before. Try it.

how can you give anything from crooked i a bad review  :scarface:

because Crooked I can't walk on water

You don't like Crooked?

that's obviously not what i was trying to express with that comment  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I'm just killing the hype



No matter how dope Crooked is,he ain't untouchable. That shit was a big disappointed no matter how you put it...  :P :-\

First I don't mind "Studio Gangsters",it's not what you say,it's how you say say it....  ;)
Most if not all of the so called "real gangsters" can't rap for shit.... they can stick to what they do best; crime  :P and let the "studio gangsters" do their thing. (music)
If you're speaking "gangster pop",well... shit has been watered down...but there's still cats doing their thing.

Anyway,Atmosphere....
hmmm the first one; has a hella dope video... the music is too "alternative" and "white" for me.
The second   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: wtf  :-X sorry... but the cat that direct their videos is hella tight,the finger board concept is tight.... love the way it narrates trough the scenes. Dope close upīs.
The third one ... this is a little better,actually sounds like something.
The beat and piano is tight. Not sure about his skills as a rapper or voice... but it ain't bad,I just need some time to rate his performance.

Thanks for the links though,at least now I know some what,what it sounds like  ;)


What about these?




He's always on point, I'm deep in this group, great music and great lyrics. I think you should give it some rotation.

Btw. this is too white too? (go on 2:15)



RA would murder anybody.

I heard "Lucy" is a metaphor for girls.

If you've got nothing to do today, watch it. Dudes are funny as hell. These episodes have confirmed me that Atmosphere is my #1 group all time.

God Loves Ugly re-issue dropping January 20, 2009! ;-)

I wanted to cop it, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Great news that they'll re-release it. So if somebody damned that album because of hard finding, go get that on 20th Jan.

and


He's always on point, I'm deep in this group, great music and great lyrics. I think you should give it some rotation.

- The beat is alright,it's on some Hip Hop shit...it sounds live,the sound quality is ehhh  :P.... what I liked best about this track though is the outro,when the DJ cuts shit up.... and ends up the classic Bushwick Bill line from from Geto Boys first album.

- it sounds alright,but damn the sound quality is really on some bootleg shit.

BTW. this is too white too? (go on 2:15)

RA would murder anybody.


- Nah,this is some real shit....
yeah he got skills,tight rhyme but I didn't like his slurring flow.... so for me this cat is better off as songwriter,because there's no doubt that verse was tight.  ;)
When I say "white",I clearly don't mean color... but I assume you got that already,since you asked me about this cat  ;)

I can barely hear the vocals.... after around 3;30 (I believe),when the breakdown comes and goes into a instrumental outro it sounds clearer.


Then you might need to get some new speakers or get a new set of ears. I find the vocal good.
I could hook up the track from the album if you want?

You can't judge a quality, when you get the links from youtube Chad.

People do a lot of bullshits (converting, etc.) go and buy an original album, you'll hear.
It's funky enough!
