For the last two decades, through tireless work and a commitment to their craft, Atmosphere and their label Rhymesayers have built themselves into an integral part of something no one would have thought possible when rap first began in the Bronx in the late 1970s: a vibrant hip-hop scene in Minnesota. Their song “Say Shh” is a perfect slice of Midwest swagger delivered with an exquisite side of Minnesota Nice. Where other acts tell you to make some noise or throw your hands in the air, Atmosphere says, “If the people laugh and giggle when you tell them where you live, say ’Shh.’”

With Minnesota United facing its own uphill climb to respect since entering the league three years ago, this season’s success has served as a chance to quiet those who doubted the team and reaffirm our commitment to that most Minnesotan of things: smiling politely and nodding while working overtime to get better. #SAYSHH
