They’re going to have a little chat again on Minnesota Public Radio. writes:

“There must be something in the water up there in Minnesota, something that encourages the dispensing of artistic wisdom in public forum. That, or Atmosphere MC Slug just likes to talk.

Not even five months after he regaled Twin Cities area residents as part of the Making Music series, Slug will once again school his fellow Land of 10,000 Lakers, this time as part of Minnesota Public Radio station The Current‘s Fakebook series.

And this time it’s looking like Slug may learn quite a few lessons as well, from one of hip-hop’s elder statesmen. Joining Slug and host Mary Lucia for the April 19 conversation is none other than Public Enemy‘s Chuck D, a man we could all, in fact, stand to learn a lot from.

Also appearing: Brother Ali, in the midst of his “The Truth Is Here” tour, who will perform songs throughout the evening.

A limited number of tickets are available for the event, which pops off at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. Those who cannot attend can of course tune in to The Current– and hey, while you’re at it, why not check out archived streams of past Fakebook happenings featuring such fine folks as Tapes ‘n Tapes, Bound Stems, Amy Sedaris, and Chuck Klosterman?

Finally, don’t forget Slug and Atmosphere’s primary piece of advice, headed your way April 22: When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.”

Slug has thrown down a free 13 track album available to download here.

Slug says on the Rhymesayers site:

“as a way to thank all of our supporters, ant and i have put together this party favor.
it’s called “strictly leakage.” thirteen songs to chase away the winter doldrums.
it’s great for first dates, crappy houseparties, or to play in the backround while you google yourself again.
is downloadable a word? what’s a doldrum?
nonetheless, thank you for the love, and please have a happy safe holiday.
oh yeah, i almost forgot, “sad clown bad winter 11” is available now, and a new album from atmosphere, “when life gives you lemons, you paint that shit gold” will be available on april 22, 2008.
