Shake’s Songs of the Week v.28

blame it on Shake November 19, 2018

For the last 127 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.

After taking a week off to enjoy some time in San Francisco (and watch my 49ers take a loss smh), I’m back with Volume 28 of my Songs of the Week playlist.

Kicking things off with Anderson .Paak and Pusha T‘s Oxnard collaboration, there’s also choice cuts from 2 Chainz and Big K.R.I.T.‘s multiple-song bundles, and five songs off the Mike WiLL Made It-helmed Creed II soundtrack — including tracks by Pharrell & Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross & Nas, Ari Lennox & J. ColeRae Sremmurd & Kodak Black, and Tessa Thompson & Gunna. There’s highlights from projects by Leikeli47, Smoke Trees, and Mariah Carey, a new Sade jam(!!), a Dave East banger that finally made its way onto streaming services, and loosies from Problem, Gucci Mane & Kevin Gates, Normani & 6LACK, and DopeHouse favorites Kemba & Smino.
