Rhymesayers represented yet another strain of alternative hiphop. In the case of Atmosphere, the divergence from the dominant strain is best represented by much of the subject matter. Forgoing the usual braggadocio, Atmosphere could almost be called emo. There's a sense of someone who is more than well aware of their faults, and perhaps ready to wallow in them. There's a big too much focus on his junk for my taste.
