Atmosphere - When Life Gives You Lemons, Paint That Sh*t Gold (Review) by @PhantomOrphan

When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold is the fifth studio album by the hip-hop group Atmosphere which consists of rapper Sean Daley (Slug) and Anthony Davis (Ant). The album was released in Rhymesayers Entertainment on April 22, 2008. 

Though receiving positive reviews from multiple critical media sources, When Life Gives You Lemons is a complete turn around as opposed to what most Atmosphere fans are used to in their music. 

One notable change is the usage of Ant’s synthesizer based production along with live instrumentation by Brett Johnson (bass guitar), Brian McLeod (drums) and Nate Collins (guitar). Tracks such as “Dreamer” really show how well the live instrumentation blends with the storytelling lyrics of Slug. 

Though the track “Guarantees” only features a guitarist and Slug, it does not bore the listener due to creative lyrics and catchy guitar riffs and memorable chorus. Slug’s lyrics also differ from previous Atmosphere albums in the sense that in many tracks he raps as or about someone other than himself. Again in the fourth track “Dreamer”, Slug’s lyrics tell a story about the life of a struggling teenage girl while in “The Waitress”, Slug raps as though he is a homeless man who has a connection to this waitress, but it is difficult to tell what their relationship is. 

It sounds as though she is his daughter, but Slug also refers to himself as a crazy man as well so the true relationship between the two is up in the air. Many Atmosphere fans praised this album due to Slug’s storytelling rap. With the new additions of music and lyricism that Slug and Ant contributed to the album, trying these new elements was a bold yet smart move. 

Taking on a new style, it is nice to see Atmosphere experimenting with new sounds and musical structures especially when executed so astonishingly. When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold is an album which does not let down a true fan of hip-hop due to honest lyricism and creative instrumentation that still has that hip-hop feel. There are no negative aspects to the album and is definitely worth the listen for those with creativity and would like to step out of their own shoes for a lyrical adventure.
