Thanks to E-Lit for the above top five chart. Scroll down to see accompanying video version in which the KALX DJ / Amoeba Berkeley hip-hop staffer runs down the top new hip-hop releases on both CD and vinyl. Immediately below is the just published music video from the #1 album on the new chart, Hella Personal Film Festival (also on LP/vinyl). That's the highly recommended new joint from LA emcee Open Mike Eagle with UK producer Paul White whose resume includes working alongside Mos Def, Danny Brown, and Homeboy Sandman. Also below is the music video for the lead single "DAPPER (feat. Anderson .Paak)" from Odd Future member Domo Genesis' new album Genesis. Other top five entries include 2 Chainz' solid new album Collegrove and Dday One's Gathered Between , and RJD2's Dame Fortune (also on LP/vinyl) that actually sounds more like 70's prog rock than 2016 hip-hop. As far as new releases dropping in the week ahead on April 15th (the day before Record Store Day) E-Lit's top three advance picks are the new one from Factor, Elucid's Save Yourself on Backwoodz, and Offwhyte's Dialog via Galapaplpgs 4.
