Looks like props are due to Foodchain and Time, whose new releases both registered on the CMJ Hip-Hop chart this month. Time's Naked Dinner, which entered the charts late last month, peaked at #19, while Foodchain's Corpses, which features a track with Talib Kweli that's garnered the attention of a few blogs, including XXLmag.com and 2DopeBoyz, and was only available digitally until just this week, moved up three slots this week to claim the 26 slot, after debuting at #38 on March 9.
