Slug is the name used by multiple musical acts: (1) American hip hop artist Sean Daley, of Atmosphere; (2) South African trance artist Liam Gibbs; (3) a Los Angeles avant/noise rock band; (4) a Chicago-based trance/breakbeat producer; (5) a house DJ from the Shetland Isles, (6) a singer-songwriter from the UK and (7) a south american thrash-metal band. 1. Sean Daley, Slug, Atmosphere: Minneapolis, Minnesota isn't exactly the ideal spot to try and maintain a career in hip hop, but somehow, Slug has managed to do just that.
Slug has seen many overcast days on his way to underground hip hop stardom. After 20 years of rhyming, this rapologist has no problem tapping into his ether. He hasn't forgotten that a new MC is born every night, and to maintain his position as a Midwest heavyweight, he must be ready for the verbal fight club at any moment. Grazing through woeful pastures of intelligence with Slug is like having a conversation with Einstein and Shakespeare mixed with street corner linguistics.
