Default atmosphere, p.o.s., brother ali

just curious, are these guys well known rap acts in the U.S.

some consider it emo-rap, though i think thats a pretty f****n stupid thing to name it.

over here in Australia many people love them, and they seem pretty underground but i wanted to know if people hate on them in the u.s. or if they are liked.

Another guy is Sole..

i personally really like it. whats the train of thought over there.

Anyway, Heres some clips:

They're well-known among the knowledgeable Hip-Hop fans but for the average fan...nope.

Brother Ali is my favorite rapper. No none of those guys are popular here. Shadows on the Sun is my favorite rap album.

I can't stand atmosphere.

Mr. Lif, Louis Logic, and Rob Sonic are my favs. Definitive Jux is a good hip-hop label. Check it.

To most people, they are not well known. Atmosphere is the most popular out of the Three, but i can't stand slugs flow/voice so i dont listen to much Atmosphere. Brother Ali is one of my favorites, although i was a little dissapointed with his new Album.

i bought tickets to the Brother ali show here in portland next month. i can't wait to see him live again i've seen him live probably about 5 or 6 times now.

I have been an atmos fan for almost 7 or 8 years now, however, there music has changed tremendously. they use to be more "boom bap" style now they are definately more emo with a little rock flavor and some MCing. i like there older stuff like SCBD 2 and 3 and Lucy Ford and GLU. It's true though artist need to change up there style to show how creative they can get and they definately have.

everytime now they come here to portland they sell out. when i first started going to there shows they would be barely a hundred people and him and his hype man back then was Eydea would walk off the stage and just do the concert from teh floor were we were on. those were good times. i still give them love they have been grinding it out now for well over a decade and they deserve teh success tehy are receiving.

atmosphere easily my favourite of the 3 but there music is just so easy to listen to i dont see how you can hate the catchy tunes and if people say its emo-rap then it covers 2 genres so more hits for them
