Weekly Dope: Westside Gunn, Belly, Kanye West & More

blame it on Shake August 30, 2021


With another seven days in the books, we’re catching you up on the best new music with the 259th installment of our Weekly Dope playlist. And if you’re keeping score at home, next week will mark five years of doing it.

On the artwork this week, I ran with a mix of Westside Gunn for completing his Hitler Wears Hermes series with Vol. 8: Sincerely, Adolf, Belly for returning with his See You Next Wednesday album, Curren$y for remaining the Highest In Charge, Atlanta’s GRIP for making his Shady Records debut with I Died For This!?, and the Gorillaz for resurfacing with their Meanwhile EP.

On top of that, there’s also new music from Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West (who finally released Donda to the masses), Flee Lord and Roc Marciano, Brother Ali, G Perico, Men I Trust, Rich Gang and Young Thug, Meek Mill (with Lil Baby and Lil Durk), Eric Bellinger, Sevyn Streeter, and more.

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