I lived in Minneapolis for a few years and saw them in concert about 10 times. Sluggo is a real beast with the Mic.
Check out Doomtree. More MNPLS hip hop. I love those guys. Sims, POS, Dessa, Cecil Otter.
If you want to be a chick, a dude, a tent, or a velociraptor be my guest, but if you choose the last one you bet your ass I will have a spaz-12 to your face.
