On this day in hip-hop history, Atmosphere released their debut album Overcast!.
Straight outta Minneapolis, on this day in 1997, Atmosphere dropped their debut album Overcast! on Rhymesayers. The rap group would catch the attention of the nation after their single "Scapegoat" became a college hit across campuses.
Overcast! would be the first landmark release from the Twin Cities' own, Rhymesayers Entertainment label and would influence a whole generation of Twin City MCs.
