Latino Gay Music Icons

When Billy Jam asked me on my take on the 100 Top Gayest Albums Of All Time, I initially told him no because I felt I had no right to add to this list cause I’m not gay. I wouldn’t want to read a list on the 100 Best Things About East L.A. written by some hipster from Silver Lake, so why would someone want to hear about what I think?

It goes without saying that many gays shop at Amoeba and the Latin Rock & Pop section is no exception. In fact, we probably get more gays shopping in our section than most sections in the store. In the last four years I have worked in that section I have received quite the education on Latino gay icons.

So I decided to make a list. In the end I did not feel the list is a generalization on what gays like. I feel like our gay customers that shop at Amoeba Latin Music Sections helped shape this list.

2) Jedi Mind Tricks A History Of Violence (Babygrande)

3) T.I. Paper Trail (Grand Hustle/Atlantic)

4) 88 Keys Death of Adam (Decon)

5) Little Brother Seperate But Equal (Traffic)

Special thanks to Scott at Amoeba Music Hollywood, where the Look Daggers (Ikey Owens of The Mars Volta & 2Mex of Visionaries and SonGodSuns) did a great free in-store performance on Thursday evening, for this week's Top Five Hip-Hop Albums. This chart, based on sales for the past week, includes some great new albums such as hip-hop trio Jedi Mind Tricks' sixth and latest full-length A History of Violence, and Little Brother's Separate But Equal (Drama Free Version) which should not be confused with the similar (including title) release by the group originally featured by DJ Drama on a hosted mixtape. The official DJ Drama-free version contains many extra previously unreleased tracks and bonus material.

And in the top slot on this week's Top Five is the great new release from Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest fame called The Renaissance. Q-Tip is currently riding high on rave reviews for both this album and his current headlining spot on the Bounce Tour. The video game tour, sponsored by 2K Sports, rolled through San Francisco two nights ago in a concert at the Mezzanine. Backing Q-Tip onstage for this show (and all of the tour) was both a full live band and a special DJ, DJ Scratch of EPMD fame. Music fanatic, Amoeba Music fan and self-described "jaded raver" Porkchop attended the SF show and was kind enough to write a review for the Amoeblog.
