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).
