Among the recent arrivals in the hip-hop section at Amoeba Music’s online store is the recommended Marlow 2 LP on vinyl and CD from the super duo of emcee Solemn Brigham and prolific producer L’Orange who back on August 14th in an interview with the Amoeblog said that, “One thing that defines Marlowe production to me is the combination of psychedelic rock and international influences. There’s lots of 60’s Asian and African influences on both records.”   Beat Odyssey 2020 CD on Jay Vee Records is the one and only turntablist master Mix Master Mike teaming up with drummer Steve Jordan for this improvised experimental album.

Alfredo vinyl LP via Esgn is Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist collaborative project that is also available on CD. The 10 track 2020 album  features guest appearances from Rick Ross, Tyler, the Creator, Conway the Machine and Benny the Butcher Benny The Butcher’s hard to find 2016 EP 17 Bullets has been repressed.  Two4One vinyl LP by Jay Worthy (Next Records) is the 16 song 2020 release from Compton rapper and LNDN DRGS front man.

Two hot new reissues are the Ultramagnetic MC’s 7” singles from Mr Bongo in conjunction with Next Plateau who originally released these classic hip-hop singles on 12” format. There’s “Give The Drummer Some / Moe Luv's Theme” 7"  that was originally released in 1989 and “Ego Tripping / Funky Potion” 7" which is the 2020 reissue of the classic 1996 hip-hop record on Next Plateau but on 12” so this is first time on 7” 45RPM format. Finally is Future’s eight studio album High Off Life on LP/vinyl and also via Epic on CD format.
