Amoeba Music Berkeley Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: Week ending July 12, 2013


1) Jay-Z Magna Carta Holy Grail (Def Jam)

2) Kanye West Yeezus (Def Jam)

3) Myron & E Broadway (Stones Throw)

4) Opio & Equipto Red X Tapes (Solidarity)

5) Quasimoto Yessir, Whatever (Stones Throw)

Thanks for the above top five chart and accompanying video run-down of all the latest hip-hop releases to E-Lit at Amoeba Music Berkeley who has already chosen his favorite album of the year so far:  Billy Woods' new collaborative project with producer Blockhead Dour Candy that dropped a week ago and features guest spots by Aesop Rock, Moka Only, Open Mike Eagle, and Elucid. In the new hip-hop videos below is the new Billy Woods/Blockhead album track "Cuito Cuanavalenavale." Check it out for a nice taste of the album.  Other videos below of music referenced by E-Lit include Opio and Equipto live at the Ruby Room in San Diego earlier this year doing something off the Bay Area pair's 2011 collaborative effort Red X Tapes on Solidarity. Also featured in the videos below is "On Broadway" by Northern Cali based duo Myron & E recorded live at Bedrock Studios in Echo Park, CA in which they were backed by a full band with brass and strings. Myron & E, whose new Stones Throw album Broadway  is available from Amoeba, play The Legionnaire Saloon in Oakland tonight (the new Oakland club, on Telegraph at 23rd, to be profiled on the Amoeblog next week).  Also below is the audio only video for Jay-Z's controversial new single -  "SOMEWHEREINAMERICA" in which he famously disses Miley Cyrus' recent twerking escapades - taken from the famous rappers brand new album, and number chart entry at Amoeba,  Magna Carta Holy Grail on Def Jam. Elsewhere on the new album in the track "Heaven" Jay Z addresses the rampant Illuminati accusations thrown at him over the past several years. Jay-Z's response is that the accusations were manufactured by those who refuse to believe that black people can be as successful as whites in America and hence deemed to be part of some secret society.
