Amoeba Music Hollywood Weekly Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: 09:10:10

NATE DOGG
1) Nate Dogg G-Funk Mix (Thump Records)

2) DJ Muggs vs Ill Bill Kill Devil Hills (Fat Beats)

3) KRS-One & True Master Meta-Historical (Fat Beats)

4) Fabolous There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music Mixtape (Def Jam)

5) Madlib Madlib Medicine Show #8: Advanced Jazz (Stones Throw)

Thanks to Michael at the Hollywood Amoeba Music for this week's hip-hop top five chart, which includes new releases from both Fabolous and Nate Dogg. Well, technically Nate Dogg's CD is a new release but it is actually all classic material from the Long Beach, CA legend who suffered a stroke three years ago. In his prime the singing/rapping Nate Dogg was kind of like the T-Pain of his day and this dozen track collection features most (but not all) of his G-Funk era classics. Included in this guest-heavy collection are "Friends (feat. Snoop FabolousDogg & Warren G.)," "Bag O' Weed (feat. Tray Deee)," "Me & My Homies (feat. 2PacNancy Fletcher)," "Sexy Girl (feat. Big Syke)," and "First We Pray (feat. Kurupt)." Def worth copping if you don't already have the 1998 2CD Nate Dogg release G-Funk Classics, Vol. 1 & 2.

Brooklyn, New York rapper Fabolous is back with a bang. His fifth and latest album, Loso's Way on Desert Storm/Def Jam, is this week's number one new hip-hop album at the Hollywood Amoeba Music store this week. Like Jay-Z [who, incidentally, appears here on the track "Money Goes, Honey Stay" (When the Money Goes Remix)] and his fabolous loso's wayAmerican Gangster record, the new Fab album also comes complete with a gangster movie inspired theme. Loso's Way is based on Carlito's Way. And the "Deluxe Edition" of Loso's Way comes complete with a DVD of the half-hour plus movie of the same name that is reportedly a semi-autobiographical film. The film also draws many parallels with the original movie character Al Pacino plays in Carlito's Way.
