For the last 125 weeks (count em), I’ve been putting together a Weekly Dope playlist that compiles all the music that was released to help fans catch up. On average, each playlist consists of 30-40 songs. So, in an effort to put a little more of a personal touch on things, I’ll also be sharing a list of my personal favorites from the week.
On Volume 27 of my Songs of the Week playlist, I’ve got Swizz Beatz and Nas kicking things off with their epic Poison collaboration. From there, Curren$y and Freddie Gibbs finally dropped FETTI project with Alchemist, Vince Staples surprised us with his FM! project, and Metro Boomin reconnected with 21 Savage on another banger. Moneybagg Yo brought J. Cole to the trap, Mike WiLL Made it kicked off the Creed II campaign with ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz and Eearz, and Thundercat dropped a groove with Flying Lotus and BadBadNotGood.
There’s highlights from projects by Action Bronson, Takeoff, IshDARR, Rapper Big Pooh, Family Bvsiness (KXNG Crooked x Horseshoe Gang), Styles P, and Young Buck; songs from Method Man & Redman, Flatbush Zombies, Dave B, Braxton Cook, Nic Sultana, and J Hoard; and I also included Teyana Taylor‘s “Gonna Love Me (Remix)” with Method Man, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, since it’s finally been adding to streaming services.
