Twitter and other manners of teh modern Internets are telling me that it's Squadda B's birthday, so combined with the fact that nobody (neither me nor Larry, I mean) has posted about Main Attrakionz since the colossal-bummer announcement of their 4/22 show cancellation (which I am still HELLA bitter about) I thought I would throw these up for the enjoyment of the, like, four people that should find enjoyment in them.
First, here's birthday guy Squadda linking up with Arkansas MC Pepperboy on a typically cruising Ryan Hemsworth beat for "Stop Tryin." For a guy who couldn't legally drink until today, sounds like he's led quite a life.
Other half of the Best Duo Ever Mondre M.A.N. and Green Ova fam member Dope G, who previously popped up on Kool A.D.'s "Town Business" track sounding like a #based Too $hort or something, also put out "I Can't Rap," apparently from his upcoming Zig Zag Raps mixtape.
Or hear both of them go in, in the true blog-baiting indie/rap crossover fashion that Main Attrakionz somehow manages to do so tastefully, over this reworked version of Dominant Legs' "Make Time For the Boy" by DJ Ammbush. Definitely the kinda stuff that will get you featured on, say, a "Stereogum Premiere".
Lastly, Brooklyn label Partisan Records announced today that they are launching a new imprint called Young One Records, and Main Attrakionz are among their list of signed artists. The label has seven previously unheard tracks up for streaming now, and are offering free cassette mixtapes of them to the first 75 people who sign up for their email list here. Main Attrakionz contribute the first two songs, the EA Sports-referencing, Scatman John-sampling (!!!) "All In the Game" and much more traditional "Ride For This."
Sources say that Main Attrakionz' next full-length is supposedly in the works, and I couldn't possibly be more excited about it. Seattle venues, however, will stay owing us Rap Junkies a proper show until the deed is done, in the meantime keep Cloud Skatin and enjoying these Perfect Skies, y'all.
