blame it on Shake April 27, 2020


With another seven quarantined days in the books, we’re catching you up on the best music with the 196th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I ran with a mix of Skyzoo for getting jazzy with Dumbo Station on The Bluest Note, Alina Baraz for releasing her fantastic debut It Was Divine, Ransom (and Nicholas Craven) for delivering a second scene to their Director’s Cut project, and, of course Top Dawg Ent. for holding it down with a week’s worth of music.
