COMPILATION: Main Attrakionz – L​.​S​.​D. O​.​G. (Loosies in the Sky with the Diamonds Of God)

Main Attrakionz logged at least 50 releases between 2009-2012, if you count both group and solo projects. The number goes up to about 80 if you count collaborations and related Green Ova material. If you extend the date period to 2015, their upcoming 808s and Dark Grapes III album might just be somewhere around their 100th. That’s a whole shitload of music, and incredibly that’s actually not all of it. There were also innumerable loosies.

A lot of these random unattached tracks came out between late 2010 and 2012, arguably the peak period for the group in terms of both quality and popularity. Some were purposeful high-profile collaborations with other noteworthy rising rappers and producers of the era, the rest were likely just fortuitous byproducts of hyperactive creativity. A whole lot of them were really really good. Unfortunately, because the internet moves at such a rapid pace, many were quickly forgotten.

I’ve always thought it was a shame to just let all these gems fade away from memory. So with the anticipation of the new album in mind, I’ve decided to compile my favorite loosies from that time. Enjoy!

I hit play on this and the fingers on my left hand spontaneously curled into the ‘west-side’ hand sign position entirely on their own accord, and have stayed like that ever since.

Like most compilations, this one has some great songs and some ok songs and songs that suck dick. Here be some that fall into the first two categories. The Troy Ave tracks is probably my favorite of the bunch.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mondre M.A.N. – Sippin Twisten Up Instrumental (Prod By Nem270)

Not sure why exactly, but a music box ballerina is the first thing that came to mind when I heard this beat by itself. It’s probably that sample. This may just be my favorite production by Nem270.
