#1 BROCKHAMPTON iridescence 2LP (RCA Records)

Topping this chart of Amoeba new arrivals in the hip-hop vinyl department is groundbreaking young LA based hip-hop collective BROCKHAMPTON and their major label two-vinyl set  iridescence 2LP    (RCA Records) pictured above (also avail on CD) and featuring among its fifteen tracks (all in caps) the songs "SOMETHING ABOUT HIM" and "THUG LIFE" and the lead single "J'OUVERT" that's featured  immediately below via the Spencer Ford directed music video.  

#2  Lil Uzi Vert Luv Is Rage LP and (tie with) The Perfect Luv Tape LP (Atlantic Records)

Popular rapper Lil Uzi Vert's two new vinyl arrivals at Amoeba this week are another example of previously released material getting newly issued on vinyl thanks to Atlantic Records. These include the 24 year old Philly based hip-hop artist's 2015 and 2016 releases respectively  Luv Is Rage LP and The Perfect Luv Tape LP. Like so many of these newly issued on vinyl releases, that tend to limited in their number of pressings, it's recommended to buy them sooner than later due to demand. Tracks on the  The Perfect Luv Tape LP include the Future guesting track "Seven Million" for which the audio-only video is featured below. 

#4 6Lack East Atlanta Love Letter LP (LVRN Records)

On LVRN Records via Interscope is 6Lack's East Atlanta Love Letter LP. The album's select guest features include Future on the title track, Offset on "Balenciaga Challenge," J.Cole on "Pretty Little Fears," and Khalid on "Seasons." Among the album's other 14 tracks are "Loaded Gun," "Disconnect," "Scripture" and "Switch" which can be heard/seen in the popular music video for the album single below. 

#4 JPEGMAFIA Veteran LP (Deathbomb Arc)

Originally released back at the beginning of the year and now available on vinyl from Amoeba is  JPEGMAFIA's Veteran LP from Deathbomb Arc. Distinctly adventurous and risk-taking, the glitchy release is the fourth full-length from the unique 28 year old rap talent born Barrington Hendricks. Completely self-produced Veteran LP includes such songs as "Libtard Anthem (feat. Freaky),"  "Williamsburg," “Rock N Roll Is Dead,” and the single seen in the music video below, "1539 N. Calvert."

#5 Doomtree False Hopes LP and (tie with) Doomtree LP (Doomtree Records)
Doomtree's two new vinyl release arrivals at Amoeba these week, False Hopes LP and Doomtree LP     via Doomtree Records are technically older releases, from 2007 and 2008 respectively, newly again available on vinyl. Since many listeners are only now catching up on the talented midwest collective, these Doomtree reissues are most welcome.
