PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS kills this garbage. His flows suck and ant is a third rate producer just usein' same old samples. I had a friend report back that he was a dick at the Paid dues show in Chicago. He was wearin' sunglasse (at night)while talking to another friend of mine (of whome is still on his dick) the time of day.

Hey beerman, Brother Ali is from Minnesota you ignorant dick. Get your facts right before you start hatin. Why would you go to a message board if you didn't like the artist? Everybody should get over themselves and throw a few positive vibes into these boards every once and a while. On that note, Atmosphere is the shit and I can't wait to see him.

The new album is pretty good. Anyone know if they are doing a 1st Ave. run at the end of this tour. Woah... Where did that Minnesota bomb come from? Hey beerman I hope you dont seriously think Cincinatti has a better music scene than Minneapolis/St. Paul. It doesnt.

Is this the same atmosphere that I have seen live? Because he has way more talent than most of the rappers out there, and he can flow with the best of them. Why is it necessary to attack minnesota... first off at least the twin cities have a music scene, arts, culture and other shit like that... Cincinnati? what, is that close to Cleveland or something, I think I've heard of it. Grow up, go to a good show and enjoy yourselves, and slug and ant have always been really nice to all of my friends so I dont know what type of experiences others have had with them but give them a second chance and you'll see that they aren't fake and they pretty good people.

i used to hate on Slug and Ant. now that i have listened to all their shit, it turns out i like a lot of their stuff. seeing them live (well it was actually Slug with a live band rather than Ant) was incredible.

if you wanna see Slug kick a nasty freestyle, rent Freestyle: Teh Art of Rhyme. shit, rent that even if you DONT wanna see Slug free. nasty DVD.
