Honestly, who’d have thought Minneapolis would emerge as a hub for underground hip-hop? The mighty Rhymesayers Entertainment hip-hop label calls the city home, and the label’s fearless leader, Slug of Atmosphere, has certainly put in work to create a movement in the city.

Starting in the early ’90s, Atmosphere created a buzz in the underground rap community, not only by pushing the genre’s boundaries but cultivating a community of like-minded artists to grow the movement. It’s safe to say hip-hop would be quite different without the group’s contribution. Dem Atlas, The Lioness and DJ Keezy round out the bill.

$25-$35, Sat Jan. 26, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., theaztectheatre.com.
