Amoeba Music Berkeley Top Five Week Ending August 10, 2012
1) Rick Ross God Forgives, I Don’t (Def Jam)
While not pulling quite as huge numbers as anticipated, Rick Ross still takes the crown as this week’s hip hop best-seller and ain’t showing any sign of slowing down in sales with God Forgives, I Don't on Def Jam. Rick Ro$$ the boss gets my vote as one of the most requested rappers from Amoeba Berkeley customers, so naturally his new official solo joint is a mover. Features songs with Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Wale and Drake plus the prime cut beat selections you’ve come to expect from Rozay. The special deluxe edition of album also features bonus jams with Nas and John Legend. As far as mainstream hip hop goes, this album’s loaded so don’t sleep.
2) La Coka Nostra Masters of the Dark Arts (Fat Beats)
