blame it on Shake February 1, 2021


We’re back! After allowing the industry’s holiday slumber go down for a few weeks, we’re finally back catching you up on the best new music with the 230th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist.

On the artwork this week, I ran with a mix of Mac Ayres for delivering one of the first quality R&B projects of the year in Magic 8Ball, Madlib for kicking off a year’s worth of monthly drops with Sound Ancestors, the good folks at Griselda and B$F for providing a soundtrack to their Conflicted film, and Pharoahe Monch (and his new group, Th1rt3en with legendary Daru Jones and acclaimed guitarist Marcus Machado) for blending rock and rap on A Magnificent Day For An Exorcism.

On top of that, there’s also new music from Lloyd Banks, Westside Gunn, Smoke DZA, dvsn, Your Old Droog, VanJess, DaBaby, and more.

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