Weekly Dope v.28

blame it on Shake December 5, 2016

As we break through the final month of the year, here goes the 28th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

Unlike the last few weeks, Volume 28 had a clear cut choice for the cover: J. Cole. After announcing a new album (4 Your Eyez Only, Dec. 9), the Fayetteville emcee also shared a 40-minute documentary that featured a pair of songs from the album. And unless you were living under a rock the past few days, you know how what came of it. Between “False Prophets” and “Everybody Dies,” Cole didn’t hold back and let his feelings be known about Kanye West, Wale (who reacted responded in the best way possible), Lil Yachty, and more.

On top of that, Childish Gambino, Smoke DZA & Pete Rock, Curren$y, Trademark & Young Roddy, and Spillage Village all released new albums worth checking out. The LOX signed to Roc Nation and announced a new album (dropping two heaters in the process). Run The Jewels and Kid Cudi shared release dates for their next projects (also dropping heat in the process). Lloyd Banks continued his Blue Friday series. Young M.A went off on a classic. Juelz Santana was “Up in the Studio Gettin’ Blown” again. Plus new music from Aloe Blacc (produced by DJ Premier), Manolo Rose & Dave East, TDE’s Punch, 24hrs, Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Joell Ortiz, and many more.
