deM atlaS "All We Got"

The mid-west hip-hop scene has bred yet another avant-garde vernacular visionary, this time in the form of a dreadlocked poet that hails by the name of deM atlaS. deM, who was recently signed by Rhymesayers Entertainment (the brainchild of Atmosphere’s Slug and Ant) shapes his craft through a deeply impassioned flow that speaks volumes to his creative musical genius and esoteric roots. deM manages to paint a synesthetic portrait with his soulful melodies and invigorating flow that is both nostalgic and current, poignant and heartwarming, happy and sad. deM’s debut EP Charle Brwne, a beautifully ambivalent tribute to the Peanuts cartoon character, is a testament to his multi-faceted abilities as a seriously talented emcee. Most recently, the music video for the single “All We Got” shows deM brandishing a baseball bat immersing you in the catharsis of an existential crisis, while belting out one of the best head-nodding hooks with a positive message you’ll hear this year. deM atlas conveys through his music “the duality of man and god, ignorance and brilliance, enlightenment and obscurity”, and is inspired by “vinyl scratches, static on the radio, Nirvana and hip-hop” according to his Rhymesayers bio. This is definitely one self-aware cat that you want to look out for on the billboards.
