Weekly Dope: Griselda Records, Smoke DZA, Pete Rock & More

blame it on Shake October 21, 2019

With another seven days in the books, we’re back recapping the best in music with the 172nd installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I decided to use the cover to Smoke DZA, Benny the Butcher and Pete Rock‘s Statue of Limitations EP – adding Smino, Saba, and Noname into the mix for forming Ghetto Sage, and throwing in a Griselda chain to represent the trio for dropping an absolute banger.

On top of that, there’s highlights from projects by Black Moon, Gucci Mane, Billy Danze, Nicole Bus, Anna Wise, Ye Ali, and Eli Sostre. The Free Nationals dropped another stone cold groove, Noname, Smino and Saba united as Ghetto Sage, and KXNG Crooked kept The Weeklys rolling. There’s loosies from Emotional Oranges, Jadakiss, The Grouch and Murs (together as Thees Handz), Wale, Jeff Goldblum (yes, that Jeff Goldblum), Gang Starr, TOBi, Rexx Life Raj, Bas, and more.

Updated every Monday morning, the playlist can be heard below and is available on Apple MusicSpotify, and TIDAL.
