This Tuesday, Yours Truly is presenting hip hop acts: G-Side, Main Attrakionz, and DaVinci. With ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova on the mics and Block Beattaz’s space-agey production, it’s easy to see how G-Side is garnering national attention from Fader, why XXL featured them as a “Breakthrough Artist”, and how they made it to #8 on SPIN’s Top 50 list of best albums of the year. G-Side’s aspirations of making it, may all be coming true as they’re gaining notoriety for their “slow cook-country rap” and “dirty south soul.”
SF born and raised rapper, DaVinci, has also been getting attention of his own. Drawing inspiration from life in the Fillmore district, DaVinci represents a “post-Reaganomic crack-era rap” generation indicative of life in the inner-city. Yours Truly spent some time with Oakland’s Main Attrakionz and captured them in their environment and the culture that influences them and the passion and drive that makes them so genuine.
Check out and download a collaboration of Main Attrakionz featuring G-Side here and check out all three perform tomorrow at the Independent. Doors open at 8:30pm and the show starts at 9pm. Tickets are available for purchase for $15 here.
