Weekly Dope: Blu & Exile, Smoke DZA, Bun B & More

blame it on Shake May 6, 2019


With another seven days in the books, we’re back with the 147th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I ran with a mix of Blu & Exile, Styles P, Bun B & Statik Selektah, and Smoke DZA for their latest projects. Well, the Below the Heavens creators haven’t released their EP yet, but the title track was enough to get them some love.

On top of that, we’ve got new singles from Maxo Kream, Curren$y & LNDN DRGS, Banks, and Leven Kali. Dreamville is in the building with a new Ari Lennox groove (featuring Masego) and EarthGang joining Emerlyd on her latest release. There’s highlights from projects by Pete Rock, Planet Asia, TOBi, 183rd & Manolo Rose, Tink, Syd B, Alex Isley (with SiR), Jitwam, Syd B, Atrayo, and MorMor; and loosies from Col3trane, 11:11, Melát, and Rhye.
