Weekly Dope v.01

blame it on Shake May 30, 2016

In the eight and a half years the DopeHouse has been around, we’ve had our fare share of weekly campaigns.

There was What’s in the Tapedeck, where we’d compile a collection of songs we either missed throughout the week or from artists who hadn’t earned their own post yet. Then after 32 weeks, it transformed into What’s in the Shakedeck, which showcased what I was personally jamming to each week. There was Shake’s Sunday Soothing Sessions, one of our longest running series (that, unfortunately, had to be cut short because politics and labels are a bitch), that was the ultimate R&B escape—with new music, unreleased demos, early leaks, and whatever else you could think of. In 2012-13, we had the 2Dope Weekly Recap mixes with Bootleg Kev. In 2014, we worked on #theMondayMix with the Lost Soundz Crew.

This year, we’ve done our best to have more of an editorial presence on the internets—Who the Hell Am I?, The TENS, AnecDOPE, etc. The first of every month, we break down the Top 10 stories of the last 30 days with The REUP.


Now, getting back to the music, I’d like to introduce Weekly Dope—a playlist of the week’s biggest and best songs.

On Volume One, I was having difficulty choosing between JAY Z (“All The Way Up (Remix)“) and Gucci Mane (“First Day Out Tha Feds“) for the artwork. Hov got the nod this time around, mainly because I have no doubt La Flare is about to flood the net with new music and has a better chance of landing one in the near future.

Coming in at 26 songs, Weekly Dope v01 also features new music from Lil Wayne & T.I., Kevin Gates, Meek Mill & Fabolous, Trey Songz, Anderson .Paak, Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment, Joey Purp, and plenty more.
