In the latest Amoeba Music hip-hop chart's number one slot with a bullet is YG
's brand new Blame It On The Streets
on Def Jam
that was released one week ago to coincide with the online release on that same day of the film of the same name.
The Blame It On The Streets
soundtrack CD is an EP length,
nine track release that's a nice follow up to his March 2014 hit debut album My Krazy Life
. It even includes a few tracks off My Krazy Life
including a remix of "Bicken Back Being Bool" and
a live in the Bay version of "BPT." Meantime the movie version of Blame It On The Streets
(which you can see in full below) is directed by Lucky Rodgers
and Alex Nazari.
is a ghetto gangsta tale that, while not totally original, is well made with good acting and production values. In fact it could have even run a bit longer than its well paced but tad too short thirty minutes. And likely there'll be a sequel in the works since the overall response by fans to the film has been overwhelmingly positive. Not to mention that it acts as a nice promotion tool for the
new release. Similarly Nicki Minaj
, whose brand new The Pinkprint [Deluxe Edition]
c/o Cash Money is this week's number three chart entry, has just released a corresponding movie short. Also featured below Minaj's movie runs about a quarter hour and is a co-promote of both her album and Beats By Dre
who bankrolled/produced the project that is technically actually a long form music video of four songs than a movie. As for the album it promotes - the The Pinkprint [Deluxe Edition]
explicit version CD that arrived into Amoeba this past week care of Cash Money Records - it boasts 19 tracks including the unavoidable current pop hit "Only" that features guest shots from Drake
, Lil Wayne
, and Chris Brown.
The album features other big
name guests too including Beyoncé
(on "Feeling Myself"), Ariana Grande
("Get On Your Knees"), Meek Mill
("Buy A Heart"), and Skylar Gray
("Bed of Lies").
