I don’t know what the hell’s in the water in Minnesota that has continuously birthed dope indie rappers. Seriously — like, Sims and Dessa from Doomtree, or Astronautalis, Brother Ali and then the legendary Slug from Atmosphere. Rhymesayers, the heavyweight indie rap label that houses the likes of Aesop Rock and Blueprint, is also based out of Minnesota so, apparently they’re doing something right. Formed in the late 80’s, Atmosphere has continuously served us super juicy hip-hop whose flavor has never run dry. In the age of mumble rap and dabbing, rapper Slug and producer/DJ Ant echo the roots of true hip hop through every release of a new album like their latest effort Fishing Blues. With Brother Ali, Dem Atlas, Plain Ole Bill, Last Word, 7pm, $25, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.
