Weekly Dope (Feb. 27-Mar. 5)

Weekly Dope.

With New York running the table the past seven days, Lady Liberty takes the cover the latest installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

From the Bronx (Don Q, Mysonne, Remy Ma & French Montana) to Harlem (Dave East, A$AP Ferg, Juelz Santana & Cam’ron), the Mecca of Hip Hop was in full effect.

First you had Don Q sharing Corner Stories (which spawned another awesome back-and-forth from Jadakiss and Styles P). Then, Dave East and A$AP Ferg linked up for a “Paper Chasin” anthem. Dipset met Coke Boys on a new joint from Juelz Santana, Cam’ron and French Montana. Mysonne blew the top off the Hot97 building with one of the best Funk Flex freestyles of the past year. Remy Ma shot at Nicki Minaj again.

Even Buffalo was represented with native spitters Westside Gunn and Conway signing to Shady Records and dropping a Just Blaze-laced banger, and Ruff Ryders’ Quadir Lateef blacking out over a DMX classic.

On top of that, Rick Ross invited a few Hip Hop entrepreneurs for a refinanced version of “Buy Back the Block,” while KXNG Crooked bodied another pair of tracks. Meek Mill popped up with a worthy loosie. Kanye West and The-Dream shared a lengthy flip of J Holiday’s “Bed.” Plus new music from Boldy James, Mike WiLL Made It, G Herbo, Lil Bibby, Wale, Snoop Dogg, and more.
