Sweep the Leg is the second studio album by American hip hop music group Hangar 18.[1] It was released on Definitive Jux on October 23, 2007.[1] "Dance with Me" features a vocal contribution from Slug of Atmosphere.[1]

Reception[edit]

Marisa Brown of AllMusic gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, commenting that "Hangar 18's two MCs, Alaska and Windnbreeze, both have good, clean flows, and even though they don't move much from the quick triplet delivery they're most comfortable with, their verses never end up sounding monotonous or predictable."[1] Neil Acharya of Exclaim! felt that "the appreciation of this album can vary widely for those that place a high value on lyrical content."[2]

Meanwhile, Sam Chennault of Pitchfork Media said: "It's clear that, individually, Alaska and Windbreeze are talented, and it's tempting to be impressed by the sheer quantity of lyrics here, but their voices are too smooth, bereft of the gruff crevices or the aching cracks that reveal personality."[3]
