I’m starting to feel spoiled, y’all. Shady Blaze and Ryan Hemsworth’s scorcher of a collaborative album is barely a month old. We JUST got our hands on Danny Brown’s absurdly quotable XXX on Monday, and now the Oakland, C.A.’s Main Attrakionz have let go of their latest. Arriving just a few months after the excellent Blackberry Ku$h EP, 808s & Dark Grapes II finds the duo of Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N taking its sound from the bedroom to the studio for fifteen tracks of blunted, gorgeously washed out boom bap. Squadda and Mondre’s rhymes are accompanied here by massive, ethereal instrumentals from Keyboard Kid, AHYVE, Squadda himself, Friendzone, and more. Album highlight “Take 1” features guest vocals from Harlem upstart A$AP Rocky and production from the Bay Area’s cloud rap maestro Clams Casino. Cop this shit. Take drugs. GREEEEEEEN OOOOVVVAAAAAA.
Hit the skip to stream and download the album.
