Atmosphere to unveil new album Southsiders in May
The eighth Atmosphere album of the group's illustrious career arrives later this year. Titled Southsiders, the collection featuring live instrumentation was recorded in Minneapolis and Oakland.
Today, the hip-hop group dropped the album's first single, "Bitter." "This one is to recognize you / Your jealousy needs an anthem too," Slug raps on the hook.
According to Slug, Southsiders is "a very detailed look at my life." With its May 6 release date in mind, the album is set to be a centerpiece of Atmosphere's performance at Soundset 2014 later in the month. We are especially curious to hear what he has to say on "Kanye West."
