Premiered by HotNewHipHop, the Oakland Cloud Rap Originators Release Latest Single Off Forthcoming 808s & Dark Grapes III Album
From Audible Treats:
Oakland duo Main Attrakionz recently announced their return from a several year hiatus with an official release date for their long-awaited808s & Dark Grapes III album, which will be released on June 30th via Neil Young's Vapor Records. On their latest single, "Dip," the cloud rap pioneers MondreMAN and Squadda B channel their inner Freak Nasty with eccentric, weeded out rhymes. With several layers of percussion rattling throughout the song, producer duo Friendzone utilize glittery, video game-esque keys, making for a delicate but disjointed beat.
"Dip" premiered via HotNewHipHop, who said
"It's yet another feel-good anthem in their repertoire, and should provide some much-needed chill in the next few months."
Last month, the eccentric pair released their Kreayshawn-directed video single "Ain't No Other Way" via The FADER, giving fans a smooth first offering from their forthcoming project. 808s & Dark Grapes III follows a stream of solo and collaborative releases in 2011, including I Smoke Because I Don’t Care About Death, The Shady Bambino Project, Dope Since ’91, and their most definitive statement to-date, 808s and Dark Grapes II, which received critical praise from Pitchfork, Complex, SPIN, Fact Magazine, and more. Squadda B and MondreM.A.N. have been rapping together for most of their lives, cultivating a passionate sound that is all their own, combining opaque atmospherics and lived-in reality rhymes. After nearly three years without releases, the duo is ready to bring their refreshed sound back to audiences.
