Last week longtime Living Legends emcee and friend of Amoeba The Grouch was the number one chart entry at the San Francisco store with his latest album, Three Eyes Off the Time (Legendary Music). And this week, the prolific artist repeats that feat at the East Bay Amoeba Music, where fans, eager for this short (only ten tracks) but quality CD, have pushed it to number one. Even though The Grouch released his last solo album (Show You The World) last year and his collaboration album with fellow Living Legends emcee Eligh (Say G&E!) just eight months ago, he still manages to come up with fresh and original material.
Less than six degrees of seperation from The Grouch is the number four entry on this week's Amoeba Music Berkeley Hip-Hop Top FIve: FELT, which features Slug of Atmosphere, who collaborated with The Grouch & Eligh on their collaborative album this year, and MURS, who is another fellow Living Legends member. Aesop Rock does production on this third and latest installment in the FELT series of tributes to B-movie actresses, FELT 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez, which appears on the record label that seemingly can do no wrong, Rhymesayers Entertainment.
