Amoeba Music Hollywood Weekly Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: 03:12:10

Ludacris
1) Ludacris Battle Of The Sexes (DTP Recordings)

2) Madlib Medicine Show No. 2, Flight To Brazil (Stones Throw)

3) U-N-I A Love Supreme 2.0 (Traffic)

4) Black Eyed Peas The E.N.D. (Interscope)

5) Strong Arm Steady In Search of Stoney Jackson (Stones Throw)

Ludacris is back and back on top with this week's number one album at Amoeba Music Hollywood. Battle of the Sexes on DTP (Disturbing Tha Peace via Def Jam), which is the ATL based rapper's seventh studio album, tackles the timeless, universal theme of the difference between the two sexes. Taking over a year to record, the album features guests spots from the likes of Flo Rida, Ne-Yo, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, Lil' Kim, Eve, Monica, and Trina. A little reminiscent of his fun early work, this album, featuring the already successful club banger single "How Low" (see video below), is likely to be one of Luda's most successful releases to date. Great tracks include "Everybody Drunk" featuring Lil' Scrappy and "Party No Mo" featuring Gucci Mane. The battle of the sexes, the relationship between men and women, and the double standards that sometimes occur, are squarely addressed on such album tracks as "Hey Ho" feat. Lil' Kim, "I Know You Got A Man" feat. Flo Rida, "B.O.T.S. Radio" feat. Shawna and Lil' Fate, and "I Do It All Night" feat. Shawna. And on the 15 track album's entertaining, Neptunes-produced closing track "Sexting," the rapper talks about Tiger Woods' marital woes and the issue of sex addiction.
