Oakland’s Main Attrakionz have been firm FACT favourites since 2011’s 808s & Dark Grapes II made it into our 50 best albums of that year.
Since then, the duo of Squadda B and MondreM.A.N., plus affiliates, have kept up a steady stream of mixtapes via the Green Ova Bandcamp, pushing the dreamy, skunk-hazed sound that’s come to be known in some quarters as cloud rap.
Two new mixtapes have just surfaced from the collective. The first, Rhythym & Zone, sees MondreM.A.N. hook up with frequent producer-collaborator Nem270 under the alias Mondre 270; it’s available to download for free here.
The Tag Champz Bundle, meanwhile, collects 23 tracks under the MA banner, with the track selection credited to Canadian hip hop contortionist and recent FACT pick Ryan Hemsworth. It’s a slightly costlier prospect at $20 for a download, but can be streamed in full, via Bandcamp, here.
