blame it on Shake September 24, 2019


With another seven days in the books, we’re back recapping the best in music with the 168th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I decided to flip Skyzoo and Pete Rock‘s Retropolitan cover with a mix of Gang Starr for announcing a new album and dropping their “Family & Loyalty” single with J. Cole, Alicia Keys and Miguel for their recent duet, the Free Nationals for their latest groove, and Th1rt3en (a group consisting of Pharoahe Monch, Daru Jones and Marcus Machado) for providing some serious wordplay on “Palindrome.”
