808s and Dark Grapes II - Main Attrakionz (Type, 2012)

The Oakland Duo of rapper/producer Squadda B and rapper MondreM.A.N. make spacey downtempo hip hop that a few years ago was affectionately dubbed "cloud rap", a sub-genre which hybridizes the most current rap beats with shoegaze and 90's Houston purple drank feel. Alongside this is a lazy and laidback vocal flow reminiscent of cool Philly vibes and classic good time summer tracks. You may be familiar with some of their contemporaries: Lil' B, Clova, Odd Future and Havoc. These performers have been on numerous mixtapes together.

Type has finally issued the best document of their work on vinyl. It shows them at the height of their game and also showcases the talented beat junkies Clams Casino, Friendzone, Marlee B and Keyboard Kid.
