Indie-rap superfriends unite! Next month, Minneapolis underground veterans Atmosphere will headline a huge 20th-anniversary show for their Rhymesayers label at the Target Center, their hometown arena. The bill is full of past-and-present labelmates, and two of the luminaries who will be present are Blueprint, from Ohio, and Aesop Rock, from New York. Those two also show up on “This Lonely Rose,” a funky lope of a song that Atmosphere just threw out into the world for no particular reason at all. Check it out below.
That 20th-anniversary show goes down 12/4, and it looks pretty great.
