Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N. of Main Attrakionz, have been rapping and making music together since they were in the seventh grade. Many years and mix tapes later that brotherly instinct remains evident on "G.O. Style" a new track from their upcoming 808s and Dark Grapes III, to be released May 12 on Vapor Records.
Though they are probably well over talking about it, the North Oakland duo are considered pioneers of ‘cloud rap’ and their 2011 mix 808s and Dark Grapes II was a defining moment of the micro genre.
For "G.O. Style" they’ve enlisted the help of Dope G, Robby Rob and Lo C4 who is also part of the Oakland based Green Ova crew.
808s and Dark Grapes III is entirely produced by Friendzone, Dylan Reznick and James Laurence (posing with Mondre and Squadda above) who also worked on “Church” and “Perfect Skies” from the 808s and Dark Grapes II mix.
Whatever the production credits, 808s and Dark Grapes III is already one of 2015’s most anticipated albums of 2015 in the Bay Area and beyond.
‘808s and Dark Grapes III’ is available May 12 on Vapor records.
