Slug & Ant domination. Originally a cassette-only album released in 1999, Headshots - Se7en is back on vinyl to celebrate its 20th anniversary. With features from Eyedea, Musab, & Mr. Gene Poole, the tracks were recorded between 1997 - 1999, and they serve as proof of how hungry Atmosphere remained after its debut, Overcast. Slug experiments further with rhyme patterns and taking on various personas, and Ant's production showcases colorful instrumentation, with top-notch chemistry between the duo providing a snapshot of the level at which the underground hip-hop scene operated at at the time of the record's release. The OG Headshots cassettes were 4-track recordings that collected works from various artists. Se7en pulls away from the compilation format of the series and puts Slug dead center, laying down the foundation for what was to become a long and storied career. All tracks have been remastered, pressed on limited-edition color-swirl vinyl.
