This video, song, and, in fact, the Main Attrakionz themselves embody a lot of what I love about The Bay. Trends in rap music pass by quickly. Many artists struggle with how to keep up. But for the most part artists from The Bay get around this by paying no attention whatsoever to “what’s hot.” More often than not, in my opinion, the result is projects that exist wonderfully out of time. The bars in this song (featuring Get:Live session alum Davinci), sound nothing like anything out today, nor are they reminiscent of anything else. The video doesn’t latch on to any of the popular trends, instead it relies on really well composed shots in great Bay Area locations. In fact, the final shot might be my favorite shot I’ve ever seen in a music video. And the Main Attrakionz (composed of Squadda and Mondre), have managed to build a following off of mixtapes, be featured on tons of highly read blogs (Fader, and Pitchfork included), have their just released and first official album, “Bossalinis & Fooliyones” on itunes, and rock shows all over the place without relying heavily on social media (their group twitter page as of when I’m writing this has zero tweets and 22 followers me included, although to be fair Mondre does have his own well used twitter page @mondreMAN). This duo is really exemplary of the music from the town I call home: utterly unwilling or unable to conform to anything except repping our cities dummy hard.
