Super talented SoCal duo U-N-I top this week's Amoeba Music San Francisco hip-hop chart with their recommended A Love Supreme 2.0. The record was written about in last week's Hip-Hop Round Up when it was also included on the Hollywood Amoeba's top five chart along with such other releases as Ludacris' ever popular Battle Of The Sexes on DTP/Def Jam. Number two at the San Francisco store, the album is number one in the country this week according to the latest Billboard album chart, arriving at the number one spot with a bullet. Typically a compilation is always a good bet since you get a nice variety of music and the best representation from each artist, but the new Decon Records compilation Decon Presents Never Not Fresh raises the bar quite a few notches. It is an excellent 13 track (plus "Intro" and "Outro" tracks) collection of some of the best tracks from the Decon vaults, including Aceyalone & RJD2 (who appear throughout, as well as together on "All For You"), Dilated Peoples ("Spit It Clearly" with The Alchemist), Jay Electronica ("Exhibit A"), Jurassic 5 ("Ducky Boy," which was first reissued a little over a year ago by Decon on the J5 Deluxe Reissue), Skillz ("Take It Back"), Del The Funky Homosapien ("I’m Gonna Make It"), Zion I ("Ride"), and more, with tracks featuring such hip-hop talents as Casual, Chali 2na, Blackalicious, Lyrics Born, Lateef, Haiku D E’tat, Evidence, 88-Keys, and Izza Kizza. Below is the trailer for the compilation.
