Squadda Bambino breaks down the Green Ova philosophy over one helluva summertime-appropriate backdrop. Not always the obvious choice, but whenever a soul music-inspired MAz track is made, it seems to more effectively throw the hot lamp on the fact that these cats ARE truly able-minded rappers…damned good ones at that. Let’s also remember to mention that this more minimal style of production provides a slick contrast to the reverb-heavy, densely layered, awfully beautiful cloud ventures that they made a signature (and wildly popular for aspiring Bandcamp “beat-tape” producers, for that matter).
Squadda B‘s original EPSquad Ready I Declare War which we posted a few months ago is now back out as a full 13 track album. You can scoop the full album for $2 (cloudbody bargain specials) or stream it below. Like Squadda‘s other solo releases, he departs from the spaced out sound but still comes correct.
Squadda B tossed out another release for your Main Attrakionz/Green Ova collection, 4 Da Fam. The sixteen track tape is mixed by DJ Slowpoke and features cohorts Mondre and Dope G on guest verses. The next MA project titled Bossalinis & Fooliyones is slated to drop in September.
Deniro Farrar continues his shared lab time with Shady Blaze and ST 2 Lettaz…but now unites the two Green Ova and Slow Motion Soundz rhyme sayers, respectively, on one big cloud-country, “keep the faith” rap huddle.

Shady Blaze, Green Ova‘s rapid fire lyricist is back it again with a new solo project titled The Grind, Hustle, and Talent. Shady dips into getting behind the boards and of course brings along his usual cohorts, including a guest verse from Mondre. You can stream the whole project below or drop a measly 5 on it to trek around with the work. And if you missed, also check Green Ova‘s latest EP.
Another day, another video produced by a PTP family member. MondreM.A.N. (of Main Attrakionz) recorded visuals for the EPMDenny produced cut “Belly of the Beast.” The vid’s not able to be embedded yet … so watch here.
And if you didn’t know — the M.A.N. EP, via DreamCollabo, was recently remixed, check the newness:
