Rest in peace to Ted Devoux (aka The Godfather) of the legendary Carson CA Samoan family rap/rock group  Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. who passed away over the weekend. In his memory below is the video for the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.'s 1990 single "Psyko Funk." In pop rap news over the weekend Rae Sremmurd  unveiled the cover art via Instagram (left) of their upcoming 3 album release Sr3mm. Meanwhile ATL trio Migos, whose 3CD Culture II will soon drop as 3LP (pre-order), got into a bit of a fight after their weekend show in Las Vegas. Reportedly entourage member Cardi B was whisked away from the melee for her safety. Recently both Cardi B and Migos (who contributed to her track "Drip") had played Coachella.

Top Ten Hip-Hop Albums on Vinyl/LP April 26 2018


01: Common Can I Borrow A Dollar? [Record Store Day] (2LP + 7”) (Nature Sounds)

Due to a combination of factors, from overstocking to under-publicizing of specific titles, there are currently a limited number of leftover titles from last Saturday's big Record Store Day 2018; half of which make up this week's Top Ten Hip-Hop Albums on Vinyl/LP list. These include in the number position the special Record Store Day vinyl reissue of Common's Can I Borrow A Dollar? via Nature Sounds that is the artist's out of print first album as a 2LP set plus a bonus 7" inch single featuring the Common B-side track "Can I Bust" and an instrumental version of the single/album track "Breaker." Can I Borrow A Dollar?  is Common’s oft overlooked / well worth revisiting debut album from 1992, two years before the release of his breakout hit sophomore album Resurrection (feat. “I Used To Love H.E.R.”). The album also harks back to the Chicago artist's early years when he was still known as Common Sense but this new issue of the album, like all reissues post-1995, has his name on the cover adjusted to simply Common

Brian McKnight What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

R&B singer/songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Brian McKnight performed at Amoeba Hollywood recently to promote his latest record, Genesis. Before the show we had a chance to sit down with McKnight and chat with him about his musical choices, which leaned heavily toward jazz. "To me, one of the greatest, iconic musical figures of the twentieth century is Miles Davis," McKnight said of the legendary trumpeter. He was particularly impressed with Davis' version of "My Funny Valentine," saying, "when you hear a recording of that, you realize what he has meant to the American musical landscape."

McKnight began his musical endeavors early, singing with his brothers in the church choir. In 1990, Warner Brothers signed his older brother, Claude McKnight III, and his band Take 6 to a record deal, inspiring the younger McKnight to shop his own demos around. He signed his first label deal when he Brian McKnight Genesis was nineteen, working with Mercury Records subsidiary Wing Records. His self-titled debut was released in 1992, topping out at #52 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and yielding the top twenty single, "One Last Cry." McKnight recorded two more albums for the label, I Remember You (1995) and Always (1997), garnering his first solo GRAMMY nomination for the latter LP.
