Atmosphere Working On New Album, Slug Talks Felt's Future & Frank Ocean

Slug of Atmosphere announces that the group is working on a new album, talks future Felt work with Murs and shares his thoughts on homosexuality in Hip Hop.

During a recent session of Ask Me Anything with fans on Reddit, Slug of Atmosphere spoke on a variety of topics. Some of those topics included the status of a new Atmosphere record, a potential for future work with Murs on Felt projects and the importance of Frank Ocean's "outward stance on gender roles" in Hip Hop. 

One of the most informative notes from the session came about when Slug announced that Atmosphere is currently working on a new project.

"Working on one right now," he shared when asked about a new album from the group. "Literally. Took a break in my day to do this AMA." 

When asked about a Felt tour with Murs for their collaborative projects, Slug was also asked if there was potential for a new album from the pair in their Felt series. His response was one that was vague but tinged with optimism for hopeful fans. 

"Felt is a spontaneous thing," he explained. "Things happen or they don't. I don't have a real answer for that. But probably yes to both questions? Maybe?" 

As with many AMA sessions, Slug was asked about other topics also. One that came up was about Frank Ocean's "outward stance on gender roles" within Hip Hop. Slug shared his take, saying that "it's dope." 

"We live in a culture of dotted lines. I think people will always box each other in or out with those lines. Sex, race, religion, etc. But with that said, I think it's dope that people are taking the outward stance for many reasons. Mostly because it inspires others to be themselves as well."

    People got too much time on their hands worrying about the things other people do. If somebody wanna be gay, or do drugs or whatever else, who cares??? I don't pay no mind to things that dont directly effect my life. Not my cup of tea but so long as you happy and you keep it away from me I could care less what you

    Not one comment about Slug and Atmosphere or Felt, grow the fuck up people. I don't like Frank Ocean as an artist but I respect him for being true to himself, more integrity than all of you insecure bitches put together.

      Okay, thank you URANTIA2. You are the only person here besides me with common-sense. These people that comment on here are extremely uneducated people and probably should be ignored but thank you for absolutely ethering this homophobe, it needed to be done.

      URANTIA2 yo a homo too. you just wrote an an essay like a crying bitch. lmao. swag

      X constantly goes back & forth on the line of a being a crackhead and being hooked on pharmaceuticals so his opinions (like beating up a child drake) currently have no merit when it comes to real Life shit. i don't know what M.O.P would say since they've been quiet for sometime now, but i wouldn't be surprised if at the very least fizzy fucked with frank ocean's songwriting since fizzy's a producer...and most producers can't hate on the artistic quality of music when it's done well. by the way straightnigga, i rarely comment on dx. cause of the intense amount of trolls and their lack of a disqus type comment format but this is the 2nd day i've seen you go on an all caps hate tirade....basic psychology would either say you're either a) a closet homo or closet bi who REFUSES to accept himself even so you project your insecurities on others or b) just dumb immature and a slave to the values/influence of those around you or c) been sodomized/molested as a child (maybe by a priest or uncle or neighbor) so you lash out on all homos...regardless, without even knowing you i'm sorry if that happened to you since children should never ever have to go through that. but you need to let go and forgive bro (no one said it would be easy) also, if you say homosexuality is wrong because of the bible, remember that the bible was written by man. at one point the bible was used to justify slavery and say that being black is wrong. God loves everybody, point blank. the only way to decrease God's love for you is by constantly & willfully rejecting it. (assuming you believe in God) if you say it's wrong because of nature, then you're wrong cause the animal kingdom has tons of examples of species doing same sex shit. and even if you're a conspiracy buff and believe that the media has a gay agenda (just like the 'black agenda' in the 60s and 70s) that doesn't give you a right to use a Hate card. you're part of the reason teens were committing suicide because they were gay (or because ppl said they were gay when they may have been too young to know either way) all in all, you're entitled to your opinion and the right to troll about it, but if you're dead serious with that shit grow up smart nigga signing out

      Then again, a real man wouldn't give a fuck. Do you, and it's easier to let others do them. Without getting butthurt because other men likes putting wood up in theirs.

    • REAL NIGGA IN THESE STREETS KEEPIN IT STRAIGHT

      PREACH

    Slug is one of the most underrated emcees in the game. Great storyteller.

  • 2 Icy Boi!

    Frank is gay. real niggaz wont listen to him. end of story. swag

    • wolf gang

      that was the most ludicrous and "niggerish" comment i've ever seen. let people live their life the way they want. and even though he's gay, he's selling records, being nominated for grammys, and getting his money, while you're stuck being dense and bashing him on the internet. in case you didn't know: ludicrouus: ridiculous niggerish: a word used to decribe an ignorant person dense: stupid

    • ShinbrigGoku

      Hey 2 Icy Boi, when you work at McDonalds I don't want any pickles on my burger, you think it's stupid when people use larger grammar structure in the English language but fun fact you need education to survive in this world
