Weekly Dope v.08

blame it on Shake July 18, 2016

Seven more days in the bag, and we’re back with another installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

Although the Drake and Joe Budden situation may have escalated over the weekend, there’s far more important things going on in this world than any “rap beef” could ever be. With racial injustice at obscene heights and communities all over the country demanding answers, few artists have held back their thoughts, fears, and ideas for a resolution revolution.

From Joe Budden’s “Freedom” to Jarren Benton’s “Scared,” emcees and singers have been using music as a form of therapy for both them and listeners — even if it’s for only five minutes at a time.

On top of the heavyhearted music, there was also a plethora of projects released from some of our favorite artists — Blu & Nottz, Cousin Stizz, Kembe X, Dave B & Sango, Warm Brew, Young Buck, Ace Hood, and more.
