Weekly Dope (Jan. 16-22)

blame it on Shake January 23, 2017

After taking a few weeks off for the holidays and preparing for the Trumpocalypse, we’re back with a new installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

This week, Royce 5’9″ is taking the cover for his surgical work on Jay Z and Future’s “I Got The Keys.” The Detroit emcee is “just having fun” beat-jackin’ popular songs and making us forget who was on the original. PHresher’s “Wait A Minute” was first. “Keys” second. He’s taking a hacksaw to French Montana’s “Lockjaw” next. And we’re here for all of it.

On top of that, J. Cole appeared from a cloud of smoke in the wee hours of the night to deliver the timely “High For Hours.” TDE officially announced SiR as their newest member. Wale and Lil Wayne released their “Running Back” collab. Dave East and Lloyd Banks continued to beat up beats. Problem took us to Chachiville. Joey Bada$$ delivered an anti-Trump anthem. The Gorillaz made an official return. Plus new music from Prodigy & Alchemist, Two-9, Kirk Knight, A$AP Ferg, Killer Mike, and more.
