Hometown heroes, Atmosphere, will be headlining a show at First Avenue tonight. They’ve been on a roll since the release of their latest album “Southside” and with the super-success of Soundset 2014. The event will also feature Prof & Dem Atlas, rounding out what should be an amazing night for Minnesota hip hop. Unfortunately, tickets are already sold out for this one. If you absolutely can not miss it, your best bet is to check Craigslist/FB/Twitter.
A couple of days ago, Atmosphere released the visual for their new track “Kanye West”. The video chronicles the escapades of an odd couple, an old Asian man and a much younger, lovelier female companion. The two go on to perform armed robberies, not out of necessity; but for the excitement. Slug plays a cashier while Ant’s cameo is much more low key. Check out the new video above and be on the look out for more from Atmosphere as Soundset draws nearer.
The lineup for Soundset 2014 is here and let me be the first to tell you….this is going to be HUGE. Of course hometown heroes Atmosphere are headlining, but that’s when the excitement begins. The festival will also feature Wiz Khalifa (2nd trip), EarlWolf (Tyler The Creator & Earl Sweatshirt), Chance The Rapper, Lizzo, Dem Atlas and even big names like Nas & 2 Chains among others. The event will be hosted by Sway again and will also feature skate contests, a car show and live graffiti painting. We’ll keep you guys posted with more info as it comes in.
