blueprint interview part one
im two listens into the new album and its definitely different. didnt expect hear print sing on some songs. the beats range from subtle to 80s dance-ish. nontheless i dig it. he said this was going to be a different type of show and it is. hes still one of the best with staying on subject throughout a song and well i recommend you listening to it. right now im really feeling the clouds, stole our yesterday, my culture, automatic and go hard or go home (printnificence).
my first listen to blueprints new album, adventures in counter culture, hails this excerpt from the song, the clouds:
i dont care about the after-party that you hosting
i dont care about the softwhite and who snorts it
i dont care about the fist fight and who caught it
cause at the end of the night, man its all gossip
fuck all the drama, im a real artist
i do this shit without any feedback or comments
ill diss anybody from the largest to the smallest
and they wont say shit because my album is the hardest
ill start in ‘88, then bring you up to date
then skip ten years ahead so you dont have to wait
im what the future sounds like and imma make you see it
im so ahead of the game that people think im cheating
but once you really see it, it aint all that hard
the rap games like vegas, im just countin cards
sittin at the table, bout to defy the odds
and i aint scared at all, because the world is yours
atmosphere - shes enough
from the upcoming album the family sign.
i dig the song but damn i miss that older vibe, circa the lucy ford eps/god loves ugly.

On April 12, the Minneapolis indie-rap powerhouse Atmosphere will release their new album The Family Sign, via Rhymesayers. It’s the duo’s first proper album since 2008’s When Life Give You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, though they released the album-length double EP To All My Friends, Blood Makes the Blade Holy last year. In addition to MC Slug and producer Ant, the album also features contributions from keyboardist Erick Anderson and guitarist Nate Collis.
