Hip-Hop Rap-Up, Week End 08.01.14: Amoeba Hollywood Top 5 Chart, Common, Cormega, Shabazz Palaces, Mix Master Mike + more

Common "Kingdom (feat Vince Staples)" (2014)


Amoeba Hollywood Hip-Hop Top 5 Chart Week Ending 08:01:14


1) Common Nobody's Smiling (Island/Def Jam)

2)  Quasimoto "Planned Attack" / Talkin' Shit" [Picture Disc] (7") (Stones Throw)

3) Madlib Rock Konducta 1 & 2 CD (Madlib Invasion)

4) Cormega Mega Philosophy (Slimstyle)

5) Madlib Pinata Beats (Madlib Invasion)

The brand new hip-hop chart from the Hollywood Amoeba Music store finds longtime Chicago emcee / actor / poet to the president  Common in the number one position with his tenth studio album Nobody's Smiling (Island/Def Jam).
Fittingly the theme of this latest full-length from the Windy City artist is Chicago itself in which, as the Amoeba.com reviews, Common examines, "the city’s historically high crime rate but also its sense of pride, there’s no better man to take us through it than Common, whose career as an intellectually leaning yet nearly always relatable presence in hip-hop comes to maximum fruition on Nobody’s Smiling." And the ten track album, which Amoeba accurately calls "a fine return to form for Common," is indeed a strong album - one that should appeal to new and old school hip-hop heads -  that features fellow Chicago native No I.D.’s perfectly complimentary production along with well chosen guest spots from such artists as Big Sean, Elijah Blake, Jhené Aiko, Snoh Aalegra, Dreezy, Malik Yusef and Vince Staples (see video for his cameo on the track "Kingdom"  above) along with thought-provoking lyrics from Common (the master who brought us the classic "I Used To Love H.E.R.") like these from the title track:

Weekly Roundup: Meatbodies, Allah-Las, Tijuana Panthers, Devon Williams

Meatbodies – “Tremmors”

meatbodiesThe latest great garage-rock band from S.F. delivers an explosion of fuzz riffs and reverbed vocals that cut cleanly through like a scalpel on “Tremmors.” The song is heavy and huge, but it’s handled delicately—the solo could only be described as lightly demonic. I love the way the song switches up to a new fuzzed out set of chords two-thirds of the way through—it’s just icing on the cake. Meatbodies comes from L.A.-based Chad Ubovich, who was Mikal Cronin’s bassist and then guitarist as well as the bassist in Ty Segall’s Fuzz project. Segall previously released some of Ubovich’s home recordings under Chad & The Meatbodies, and now the simply titled Meatbodies album is due soon on In the Red. They’ll be at Echo Park Rising Aug. 16 and The Echo Aug. 28.
