Weekly Dope: Ari Lennox, Emotional Oranges & More

blame it on Shake May 13, 2019


With another seven days in the books, we’re back with the 149th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I ran with a mix of Ari Lennox and Emotional Oranges for their new projects, Shea Butter Baby and The Juice Vol. 1.

On top of that, we’ve got some straight up rap bangers from Diamond D, The LOX, and KXNG Crooked. Curren$y and LNDN DRGS provided the gospel, Maxo Kream and Megan Thee Stallion held it down for Houston, and Flying Lotus continued to tease his Flamagra album on a single with Anderson .Paak.

There’s also highlights from projects by Berner, Scotty ATL, Rob Markman, 14KT, Jamila Woods (with Saba), SAFE, Rosie Lowe (with Jay Electronica), Young Nudy & Pi’erre Bourne (with DaBaby), Leven Kali, SonReal, Crumb, Collard, and Izzy Bizu. And loosies from Jhené Aiko, Kur (with Mozzy), Medasin, Shay Lia (with Buddy), Pell, NBDY, Daringer, and Niia.
