To be honest, I’d rather see MAz put out shorter tapes together than longer tapes separately (ala their mighty 2011 run.) Shorter releases are easier to digest, and the MAz/Green Ova collaborations often end up being the highlights of their solo projects anyway. But, there is some really good stuff on here and there is some really good stuff on Squadda’s Playtime, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too hard.

TBH I haven’t heard this yet but the lineup of talent involved certainly looks impressive, and pretty much any Green Ova-related tape is always guaranteed to have at least a few good tracks.
Rap game orca splashing gracefully through a mist rising from the ocean at sunrise.
This is that quintessential MAz sound right here. Bossalinis & Fooliyones could’ve used more of exactly this kind of ambient melodrama (Friendzone’s absence was really a big sore spot for that album.) Allegedly there are two MAz X Frienzone albums slated for next year, about damn time that happened.
Bonus points, a new Frienzone instrumental that popped up a few days before the song above.
Hoping for good things here. The roster of participants is certainly impressive, which is not surprising considering Deniro’s knack for picking collaborators.
.L.W.H.’s previous album Tape Hiss Hooligan was an exercise in Green Ova team building; almost every track featured at least one member of the Main Attrakion or Shady Blaze or frequent Green Ova collaborators like Western Tink and Friendzone. CIA TV takes a different route, putting the spotlight on .L.W.H. himself to showcase his considerable production talents. Only one track on here features rapping (by MAz of course), the rest are instrumental, with an expected detour into a psychedelic ballad thrown in at the end. And it’s all good stuff, much much better than what you normally find on beat tapes these days. This is an interesting, well executed album that shows a side of Green Ova which often goes overlooked.
More Friendzone instrumentals are always welcome. Original song here.
This is a Friendzone instrumental from a Main Attrakionz song, nuff said.
