Main Attrakionz – “Cloud Body” | New Music

If you haven’t listened to Main Attrakionz yet, please start now. The Oakland rap duo of Squadda B and MondreM.A.N might get around the blogosphere a bit, but like many good Bay Area rappers, they’re still stuck in the outer reaches of the rap universe.

“Cloud Body”, the first single from their upcoming album, Bossalinis & Fooliyones, is a great introduction to their work.

Main Attrakionz won critical acclaim for the cloud-rap sound which characterised their 2011 album 808s & Dark Grapes II and this track in the same, dreamy vein. Whilst producers Squadda, Friendzone, Ahyve and Clams Casino were the go-to-guys for 808s & Dark Grapes, Montreal production duo Grown Folk are on call here. They conjure up something just as sloth-like, yet just as pretty as these esteemed producers’ beats, providing the perfect platform for Squadda and Mondre to do what they do best: glide through raps and burn through blunts.

Of course, the title and the production is also a statement. Whilst Main Attrakionz will never stop experimenting with their sound  (producers like Harry Fraud are set to appear on the new album), they know that their home is in the clouds.
