Slug is the MC of the Minneapolis hip hop duo Atmosphere. He is a co-founder of the Rhymesayers Entertainment label. He is considered a conscious rapper, often focusing on his love life and other issues in his Minnesota lifestyle. He also tends to vividly describe people and social circumstances. Ant, who is one half of Atmosphere, produced Felt's second album Felt, Vol. 2: A Tribute to Lisa Bonet in its entirety. Felt retired as a group in 2009. 5 years later Slug was shot in the head and killed in Hubbard County Minnesota. His death has yet to be released to the public.
Murs was a member of the Oakland hip hop collective Living Legends. He is known for straying away from the generic gang-influenced rap that is so often affiliated with West Coast hip hop. The Grouch of Living Legends produced Felt's first album Felt: A Tribute to Christina Ricci in its entirety.
