Atmosphere – My Best Half : Hip-Hop

Posted in Bangin by Jake | Tags: , ,


Underground hip-hop legends Atmosphere have appealed to a wide audience while maintaining their underground aesthetic with their releases. They recently provided us with “This Lonely Rose,” a collaboration alongside fellow underground rapper Aesop Rock, and this new track builds off its success. 

Written and produced by Atmosphere, “My Best Half” is an appropriate name for this ode to Slug’s wife as he states “The first time I met my wife was on a Wednesday night, making party in a german bar. Here's a new jam. "My Best Half". The beat brings a classic, boom-bap style beat with piano key work and a constant, creeping bassline coming together while the smooth lyrics are laid on top. Stream below and enjoy!
