Thanks to E-Lit at the Amoeba Music Berkeley store for the above top five chart and video breakdown of all the new and recent arrivals in the hip-hop department of the East Bay Amoeba store for which this week's special Video Version of the Hip-Hop Rap Up I've assembled the corresponding (or as many possible) of the top five albums plus other new releases referenced by E-Lit including MURSDAY!, Open Mike Eagle, Sage Francis, Radioinactive, Sapient, and clipping. (the new SubPop release). Also included below in video format are two other current Amoeba Music hot sellers: the video for the title track off 50 Cent's Animal Ambition (G-Unit), and some great video footage from last month in NYC at the Public Theater during the release concert party for The Roots' ...And Then You Shoot Your Cousin (Def Jam) which is also available in LP. Watch and enjoy and visit either one of the three Amoeba Music retail stores or the Amoeba online store to buy this music.
