#92 – Atmosphere – Modern Man’s Hustle (2002)

First heard: 2004

Why it’s on the List: This song didn’t start my obsession with Atmosphere, but it certainly fueled it.

I first heard Atmosphere at a college party. One of the houses I frequented loved playing Seven’s Travels. I remember hearing Trying to Find a Balance and thinking, “Whoa…”

Days later I picked up everything Atmosphere had done and played it constantly. I loved Seven’s Travels. Really liked Lucy Ford. I absolutely fucking loved God Loves Ugly.

Back then I used to commute an hour to and from school. When I wasn’t listening to ESPN I was listening to GLU. Top to bottom, I thought it was just about the perfect album.

Modern Man’s Hustle remains my favorite tune. If there was ever a hip hop track to chill to on a stormy day indoors, this was it. Chill being the key word there; that’s all there is to do when relaxing to this song.
