Atmosphere Raps Domestic Violence (VIDEO)

Jul 13, 2011 at 1:57 pm

The government may be shut down in Minnesota, but Minneapolis Hip Hop crew Atmosphere is still workin'. Today, MTV debuted Atmosphere's new music video for the song "The Last to Say." The track and video are sober looks at domestic violence in today's society — something fairly timely considering the conversation sparked by the alleged violence between superstars Rihanna and Chris Brown, as well as other celebrities — and urges those involved in an abusive relationship to leave and get help. Check the clip below and click here for more on the video, as well as a few links to organizations that can offer help to victims of domestic violence. —-

Atmosphere comes back to Cincinnati — site of at least one show that has become a part of the group's legend — on Aug. 16 when its "Family Vacation Tour" hits Bogart's. Also on the bill are Evidence, DJ Babu (of Dilated Peoples), Prof and Columbus, Ohio's rising Hip Hop star, Blueprint. (Click here for ticket info and to RSVP on Facebook.)
