Atmosphere is an American hip hop duo, formed in Minnesota in the late 1980s/early 1990s by rapper Slug (aka Sean Daley) and DJ/producer Ant (aka Anthony Davis). In 1995, the duo formed the underground hip hop freestyle crew Rhymesayers Collective, who were known for their complex and conscious lyrics, which went against the popular gangsta attitudes of rap at the time. Their debut album, Overcast!, was released in 1998 and is now widely regarded as an underground hip hop classic. Over their two decade career, the duo has released seven studio albums and ten EPs; their most recent release being 2016's Fishing Blues.
