It's almost three years since Main Attrakionz's debut album Bossalinis & Fooliyones, and the cloud rap architects are now readying what will technically be their first full-length since then. Titled 808s and Dark Grapes 3, it's set for release this summer. Two important/exciting things to note about that project: 1) it will be produced in its entirety by East Bay production duo Friendzone; and 2) they recruited Kreayshawn(!) to direct the video for their supremely chill latest single, "Ain't No Other Way."
They shot the low-key video in on a "nice little night" in the winding streets of San Fransisco's Chinatown. "Shit was nice," Mondre M.A.N. told The FADER, making the shoot sound more like a hangout than work. "Shout out to Kreayshawn for showing support, shooting the video for us." 808s and Dark Grapes 3 is out June 30 via Neil Young's Vapor Records label, and they have a short run of tour dates scheduled for before them; check out the lineup below.
