Thanks to E-Lit at the Berkeley Amoeba Music store for supplying the latest top five chart at the Telegraph Ave. store and for doing an overview (in video above) of some of the new hip-hop releases to arrive in Amoeba recently. These include brand new chart entry from Cage - the long overdue album Kill The Architect - that was released on Tuesday this week and features production from DJ Mighty Mi ( from Philly hip-hop duo The High & Mighty) who released the album on his label Eastern Conference. As E-Lit noted the album (with cover by Antioch, CA born artist Alex Pardee) has "no guests" but is "one cohesive body of work." Another new release that dropped on Tuesday (October 22nd) is the Armand Hammer (NY emcee talents Billy Woods and Elucid) album Race Music that E-Lit has lots of good things to say about in the video above. However note that the Amoeba online price of the CD (free shipping in US) is lower than in the store. Buy here.
