Biracial MC Slug Grew Up A Musical Spy

Rene Spencer Saller of the Dallas Observer chatted with MC Slug, the voice of Minneapolis underground rap group Atmosphere. The biracial Slug (real name Sean Daley) has crossed from indie rock from indie rap, white music from black music explaining, “Growing up, I always felt like a spy, and that always kind of did give me a sense of empowerment. But as much as it empowered me, I guess I want to use the word ‘negated,’ too. It took away from, like, reality. Becoming that kid who was cool enough to go to that kegger with the frat boys and also sit in the basement with the thugs kept me from being able to ever really identify with anybody.”

Atmosphere’s Slug Flattered By Eminem Comparisons

Dan Reines of the San Francisco Weekly spoke with Slug (aka Sean Daley) of Atmosphere, the Minneapolis-based hip hop duo comprised of himself and DJ/beat-maker Ant (Anthony Davis). Though Slug is the racially mixed grandson of a black jazz trumpeter and he has always identified as black, he looks white, thus the inevitable comparisons to Eminem. “Let’s face it,” says Daley, “Eminem is a fu**ing icon right now for a lot of fu**ing people. So [the comparison] is flattering. It’s almost ludicrous, though.”

As for Slim’s rep, in many circles, as maybe this country’s biggest a**hole, Slug said, “Yeah, that’s the public perception. But I’m sure that there’s a handful of little 15-year-old suburban white kids with dreadlocks that think I’m a fu**ing asshole too. But they aren’t the ones that know me from day to day. My great illusion in life is that nobody thinks I’m an asshole. … And I’m doing pretty good with that illusion right now.”
