Amoeba Music Berkeley Weekly Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: 02:25:11
1) Sims Bad Time Zone (Zoomtree) CD
Proud to be stocking this product and even prouder that it's moving so well. This sophomore album from Sims is an album years in the making that highlights the Doomtree rapper's progression as an MC and talented lyricist. Doomtree's central producer, Lazerbeak, handles the entirety of the album's production and delivers some of his strongest beats to date. Very highly recommended, glad a distributor was wise enough to finally pick these guys up.
2) Cee-Lo Green The Lady Killer (Elektra) CD
Still moving strong, Cee-Lo's latest is just another example of how Goodie Mob's brightest shining member can make an album with massive radio appeal without sacrificing his artistic integrity. Whether he's singing or rapping, Cee-Lo always brings something interesting to the table.
3) Awol One & Factor The Landmark (Fake Four) CD
