Atmosphere live @ Cains

I wear my scars like the rings on a pimp.
I was able to catch the Atmosphere show last night, my first hip hop show I might add.
The show kicked off with a guy named listener(probably not the name his mommy gave him). I was a bit unimpressed, it was just him rapping along to a prerecorded track in front of a video screen showing infomercial. I did see a really cool sword that I think Baomi's boyfriend would probably like. We actually sat down(a first for a Cain's show) and waited for the next act while watching for hip hop cowboys.
Los Nativos were next and they were pretty good. I believe their dj's name was bip bong but I could be wrong. They did a song about buying chicken that made me very hungry. A very drunk fat guy attempted to break dance behind us. The base was so loud that it made me have to pee.
Atmosphere came out with just his Dj Ant and one of the rappers from Los Nativos for the first part of his set. After a few songs Slug brought out an entire band and commenced to really put it down. The live band sound was miles better then just the dj. The set was pretty heavy with songs off of the new album but I did get to hear a live band version of "God Loves Ugly". Odida will be pleased to know that he did part of "slow and low". Overall I was really impressed. The venue was about half full but Slug seemed to be giving it his all. I would love to see him again, he made the fat girls behind us shake their moneymakers(that's not a good thing).

That's awesome! Slug can definitely rhyme better then most so-called "hip hop" artists i might add. Congrats on your first hip hop show. Maybe Hieroglyphics will come through sometime... Best hip hop show out there...

One of my theories? It's the only theory I have. My whole philosophy of life is based around it.
