You may be familiar with MondreM.A.N. through his work with Main Attrakionz, and if you liked him there, you’re going to like his new venture here, as a solo artist. His debut album will be released through SWTBRDS on November 12th called They Say I Struggle Rap but as you’ll hear on his first single, it’s far from struggle rap. The song is called “MC Illin”, produced by Al Jieh, and this is what it means to be Oakland and proud, as well as illin’. The album will also feature contributions from DaVinci, Squadda Bambino, Shady Blaze, and Hasani.

VIDEO: DaVinci’s “Fuck Everybody But Me/Nothin’ Finna Stop Me”

DaVinci is back with a 2-in-1 deal, in this case it’s a Tim Jieh-directed video featuring two tracks: “Fuck Everybody But Me” and “Nothin’ Finna Stop Me”, both taken from his album The MOEna Lisa, which you may check out below via Bandcamp (or click this link if the player is not showing up.)


San Francisco’s DaVinci is ready to release his album called The MOEna Lisa, but he’s going to keep people waiting a bit be releasing an EP called XLIX, so not only can you consider this a sampler of what’s to come, but he’s making it available for free via Bandcamp. The full length? That will be out on November 6th.

VIDEO: DaVinci’s “Paper Power Pussy”

It’s one thing to have a sexy lady in your kitchen rolling a joint for the both of you to smoke after the video shoot, but when you say “paper, power, pussy on myr motherfuckin’ mind” in front of her, is that okay for everybody? A part of me wants to say “have some manners, man” but the other part of me says “lick the Zig Zag’s and have a blowback near her anus”. The track and video are both laid back, and jokes aside, I really like this. Paper, power, or pussy? Why not have all three, if you can maintain them while remaining sane? The song is from his forthcoming The MOEna Lisa project.
