Clocking in a just under an hour is Army Of The Pharaohs anticipated new joint and this week's number one hip-hop chart entry at Amoeba In Death Reborn which is the fourth studio album by the non-commercial yet hella popular Army of the Pharaohs featuring the all-star lineup of Vinnie Paz, Apathy, Blacastan, Block McCloud, Celph Titled, Crypt The Warchild, Demoz, Des Devious, Doap Nixon, Esoteric, King Magnetic, King Syze, Planetary, Reef the Lost Cauze, and Zilla with production from various studio talents including Apathy, C-Lance, Leaf Dog, Panik, and Stu Bangas. The release, which is the group's first new studio album in four years, is packed with rapid fire wordplay by this talent-packed collective and features such memorable tracks as the lead single/video “God Particle” (below). Also below is the video for YG's Drake featured single "Who Do You Love?" off his current chart entry My Krazy Life on Def Jam. Other chart entries at Amoeba this week are Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's Pinata, ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron, and (in throwback style) DJ Quik's 1995 album Safe + Sound which is one of two older releases that have been moving at Amoeba Hollywood this past week. The other older release that, for some reason, began selling briskly over the past week at the SoCal Amoeba is Lauryn Hill's 1998 post Fugee's solo classic The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
