Amoeba Music Hollywood Hip-Hop Top Five: Week Ending 04:11:14


1) Chuck Inglish Convertibles (Federal Prism)

2) Freddie Gibbs, Madlib Pinata (Madlib Invazion)

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

4) YG My Krazy Life (Def Jam)

5) Kendrick Lamar  Good kid, m.A.A.d city (Aftermath)

Once again this week at Amoeba among the popular recent hip-hop releases is the Freddie Gibbs, Madlib collaboration Pinata that is in the number two slot on this week's new Amoeba chart from the Hollywood store. The album, that appears on Madlib's Madlib Invazion label,  continues to also sell well at both Bay Area Amoeba Music stores. No doubt the duo's recent, reportedly excellent Bay Area concert helped boost interest in the new album. Another Madlib related release on this week's chart is the Quasimoto 7" picture disc "Planned Attack" and "Talkin' Shit" on Stones Throw Records. Other new Amoeba Hip-Hop chart entries include YG's My Krazy Life on Def Jam, Kendrick Lamar's unstoppable Good kid, m.A.A.d city on Aftermath, and the number one album this week: the brand new Chuck Inglish album Convertibles on Federal Prism (note there will be a vinyl LP version dropping on April 29th).

Special thanks to Marques at the Hollywood Amoeba Music for this week's top five hip-hop albums, which includes hometown artist The Game's new album LAX twice. "The number three on the chart version of The Game is the deluxe edition of LAX which has three extra songs on it," notes Marques of the second (more limited pressing) version of the album that also costs a bit more to purchase. Other chart entries include the recently released Young Jeezy album The Recession, Lil Wayne's current hot seller Tha Carter III (sure to be on many year end lists), and the latest from GZA, Pro Tools. Meanwhile GZA's Wu-Tang buddy RZA (who supplies some production on the guest heavy Pro Tools album) will be one of the many performers at the upcoming We The People Music, Arts, and Cultural Festival happening at Los Angeles State Historic Park (1245 N. Spring Street) on Saturday, September 27th. Others scheduled to perform include EPMD (pictured), EPMDFishbone, DJ Premier, Les Claypool, Suicidal Tendencies, Z-Trip, Dilated Peoples, Eeek-A-Mouse, Barrington Levy, Bassnectar, Free The Robots, B-Side Players, Roots of Creation, Markus James, Look Daggers, Tom Morello, and Flying Lotus, whose recent Warp release Los Angeles is one of the best albums of 2008.
