I guess Rhymesayers Entertainment is really out to do some damage in 2014. A while ago we shared a new single from Grieves in conjunction with his new album announcement; just about a week ago we had an insane new mix from DJ Abilities; and now, we have a new single from the Rhymesayers kings themselves, Atmosphere. Today the Minneapolis rapper/producer duo of Slug and Ant dropped their newest single, “Bitter”.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from these two, but Atmosphere always puts in time on their albums. Along with dropping the single, the group also announced their own new album, Southsiders to be released May 6th, 2014.
We’ve seen Slug come at us with aggression, clarity, honesty, despair, hopefulness and even the occasional moment of pure relaxation, but the theme of a track titled “Bittter” should hold no secrets. Slug is morose, and Ant’s beat is fixed accordingly, trudging along to the words as Slug lays them down. Lovers of the classics should be able to dive into this one pretty easily. “Your jealousy needs an anthem too”.
