The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week ft. Big K.R.I.T., Funkadelic, Snoop Dogg and More [Playlist]
A collection of the week’s finest frequencies
Happy Friday, folks, and welcome to another brief, yet potent rundown of the week in music.
New albums from Majid Jordan, OverDoz, Big K.R.I.T., Ty Dolla $ign and Uncle Snoop filled out a fairly short list of project releases, a welcome break from the onslaught of an uncharacteristically packed fall schedule. But the loosies, as always, got us through.
Stimulator Jones marked his Stones Throw debut with the release of a breezy nineties specimen, T-Pain found a kindred r&b spirit in Smino, Mophono & Tom Thump shared their full-melt contribution to an upcoming Funkadelic remix album, while Aminé made yet another compelling case for his consideration in rap’s growing elite. Throw in a touch of shameless trap fodder from Migos and Cardi B, Space Captain’s heart-swelling fusions and some pace-changing psych-rock selections from Shopping and Marlin’s Dreaming, and you’ve got yourself quite the haul to ease into this weekend.
Naturally, we’ve brought it all together, along with crucial cuts from this week’s album releases, in a new installment of The Round-Up. Hear it below and hit the link to follow along on the paths of rhythm via Spotify.
