Atmosphere – The Last To Say (Video)

Slug is one of my favorites… yet somehow I still haven’t listened to The Family Sign yet. That’ll have to change tomorrow because I’m really diggin’ this joint!

The iconic independent rap group Atmosphere releases a new video for their song “The Last To Say” off their latest album, The Family Sign. The video deals with the very serious and all too common subject of domestic violence. Victims of abuse include women, men and children, but all are affected by it’s wrath. Nearly three out of four of Americans personally know someone who has been a victim of domestic violence. On average more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners in this country everyday. A refreshing departure from the typical rap video, “The Last To Say” advocates positive treatment of women and focuses on the struggle many victims face – how to escape the abuse in their home so it doesn’t continue to be passed down.
