Oakland rap duo Main Attrakionz have carved out a sound of their own that embodies the more experimental side of the Bay Area hip-hop scene. While artists like E-40 and Too $hort continue to manufacture Bay trademarked hits, newcomers like the Main Attrakionz push that classic style forward progressing with little regard for genre boundaries. On their latest single, “Do It For The Bay,” Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N. enlist a fellow emerging emcee from across the Bay Bridge, DaVinci, who hails from the Fillmore in San Francisco. Over the some smooth signature “musica de Harry Fraud,” the three rappers pay homage to their respective homes with the distinct slang and feel of the Yay Area.
Stream and download this Northern California anthem below. The Main Attrakionz upcoming album, Bossalinis & Fooliyones, is due out on October 23rd on Young One Records. Also, look out for DaVinci’s LP, The MOEna Lisa, which is set to drop on October 17th.
