Welcome to the latest edition of our beloved Weekly Set-series. In comparison with Volume 13, this week’s set offers almost the same congregation of artists. So what have we learned during the past seven days? Obviously Drake, Jay-Z and Eminem are always in heavy demand, so it comes as no surprise that these gentlemen are fixtures on our site every monday. Also, Evil Empires’ Trending Topics 4 is one ambitious project that features a new Swizz-Beatz-assisted song by Jay-Z as well as new recordings by Kanye West. It also becomes apparent that after years of struggling in the music industry Atlanta songstress Janelle Monáe is finally getting the respect she so much deserves. The B.o.B. and Lupe Fiasco-powered remix of her excellent single “Tightrope” has been played by our readers even more than Em’s surprising collaboration with pop singer Pink. The Cool Kids returned with a fishing-themed mixtape in order to get you amped up for their fothcoming album.
Here are some further lessons from last week. The charismatic Hip Hop trio Beastie Boys are still relevant. The Roots’ new album How I Got Over seems to solely consist of remakes. Electronic pop from Brooklyn is good and sexy. Nas’ rhymes from the early nineties still sound as fresh as his new album with Damien Marley Distant Relatives. Travis McCoy’s solo debut Lazarus won’t fail.
Lastly, however, one question remains: Why did Drake’s “You Know You Know” not make the final cut of Thank me Later?
