Welcome back to the latest edition of our Weekly Set series. With the latest audio impression from his upcoming sophomore effort Take Care, Drizzy is certainly setting up the mood right. So does The-Dream. While announcing his fourth album, The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man), the crooner unleashed the double track "Body Work / F*ck My Brains Out" in order to whet the appetite of the masses. Odd Future's Domo Genesis also kept the word spreading with his sample-heavy "Boss Life." Not new, but certainly worth a listen or two is the previously unreleased track by Lil Wayne. Entitled "My Birthday," the tune dates back to 2006 and finds Weezy sharing the mic with Kidd Kidd, Gudda Gudda, T Streets & Mack Maine. Arguably one of the most consistent rappers in the game, Curren$y offered another preview from his much-anticipated Weekend At Burnies. Much to the pleasure of his fans, Spitta does what he does best and kicks a laid back flow on "You See It." Kelly Rowland also scored high with her Lil Wayne-assisted "Motivation." Needless to say that an official remix treatment with the likes of Trey Songz, Busta Rhymes and Fabolous would also receive heavy attention.
Further highlights consist of Skylar Grey's treat "Dance Without You," Thundercat's refreshing "Daylight," Royce Da 5'9"'s long overdue reunion with DJ Premier, Grimes' remix of Washed Out's "Eyes Be Closed," and The Naked and Famous throwback "Bells."
Regarding videos we saw Memory Tapes' surreal "Yes I Know," eLZhi's "It Ain't Hard to Tell," We Are Trees' choreographic "I Don't Believe in Love," Pusha T's "Alone in Vegas," an official video of Frank Ocean's "We All Try," Broken Social Scene's "Sweetest Kill" starring Bijou Phillips, Bad Meets Evil's "Fast Lane," Pharoahe Monch and Styles P's "Black Hand Side," Kool Keith's "Bushman," Fabolous' "Y'all Don't Hear Me Tho," Dom Kennedy's "Grind'n," Best Coast's "Gone Again," and Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night."
