Main Attrakionz – Swaggin Hard

Main Attrakionz are an Oakland-based rap duo who have been starting to garner a lot of atention lately with an inexhaustible stream of free mixtapes. “Swaggin Hard” is a cut from one of those tapes called Chandelier which was released in May. The duo’s mix of melodic hip-hop production and occasional triplet-time flow makes them sound a little like a new, swagged out Bone Thugs.
