Main Attrakionz x Tynethys is the second joint tape from the Oakland duo and Sacramento producer Tynethys. (Their first attempt was lost in a hard drive crash.) True to form, it’s an airy, narcotic project that floats along and passes in a blur. (I will not say the word cloud, I will not say the word cloud.) Sometimes it’s hard to focus on what exactly Squadda and Mondre are saying, but they’ve always focused on vibe more than content, and I don’t mind that. Tynethys packs a lot of layers into his beats; sometimes that approach works (“Lesson”) and sometimes it doesn’t (“Strawberry Letter 316″). At some points, I yearned to hear some Squadda production. Overall, a great soundtrack for getting high and taking a nap, which is no simple feat.
Highlights: Green Ova secret weapon Shady Blaze’s verse on the sleek, sophisticated “On1.” Tynethys’ beat for “Lesson.” his best on the tape. The druggy goofiness of weirdo G-funk throwback “International.”
WTF: This is definitely the first time I’ve heard a metaphor comparing girls to USBs.
