MUSIC: Up-and-coming Rap duo Atmosphere's "Shoulda Known"

Atmosphere is a rap duo in their mid-30s from Minneapolis that have been in the business for 15 years. Six albums later and their latest When Life Give you Lemons, You Paint that Shit Gold finally got some commercial recognition. Well, a little. I saw their video for "Shoulda Known" on MTV2 or MTV Hits--or one of those MTV channels--and even though it was a bit much for 8am, I liked the rhythm and the rhymes enough to write it down before jetting out the door for the bus. Their album debuted at #5 on the top 200 Billboard charts for the first time ever, and I predict more future success--maybe even similar to the likes of Gym Class Heroes. They need to start collabos with Method Man, Kanye, etc. immediately. Listen:
