We proudly present to you the 50th edition of our beloved Weekly Sets series. While it remained absent for two months earlier this year, we certainly will continue to deliver you our weekly recap. Not only because they helped us boost 10 million plays on our SoundCloud page that were surpassed last week.

Mayer Hawthorne resides on top of this anniversary edition with his ELO cover of “Mr Blue Sky.” The tune was released a couple of days prior to the release of his excellent Impressions which finds the Michigan crooner reinterpreting some of his personal favorites. You can tell by the tracklist that the musician was digging deep in his immense vinyl collection. In support of his upcoming Timez Are Weird These Days full-length, Theophilus London comes in at number two for his “Last Name London.” After a few listens, it becomes apparent that the tune is a perfect combination the multiple sounds and elements that the talented Brooklynite has utilized in his young but already impressive career. It definitely sets the mood straight for the next chapter in his career. Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group seems to be ubiquitous these days. So comes Wale’s aggressive “By Any Means” featuring labelmates Meek Mill, Pill and Mr. Rozay which antes up the anticipation for MMG’s forthcoming Self Made Volume 1 compilation. Easily one of the game’s most intriguing lyricists today, J. Cole continues to tease the world with his abilities with the excellent “See It to Believe It.” Unfortunately, there is still no definite release date for Cole World in sight. Wrapping up this week’s top five, Cut Copy turned in their very danceable rendition of The Miracle Club’s “Light of Love.”

Further favorites among our readers encompass B.o.B and Yelawolf’s animatic “It’s a Party,” Beck’s superb remix of Jamie Lidell’s “Completely Exposed,” Lil Wayne’s YMCB celebration “She Bad” featuring Mack Maine and Kidd Kidd, Lil Scrappy and Pharrell flexing their muscles on their “Grustle,” and Blu’s dedication to Southern California’s undergorund rap scene “Doin’ Something” featuring Pac Div, U-N-I, J*Davey, Tiron and Ayomari.

Noteworthy video work came in by Battles with “Ice Cream,” Rihanna’s “California King Bed,” Death Cab for Cutie’s “Home is a Fire,” jj’s “Angels,” Pusha T’s “Open Your Eyes,” Curren$y and Fiend’s “Blood, Sweat & Gears,” The Weeknd’s unofficial “What You Need,” Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife,” Game and Weezy’s Blood anthem “Red Nation,” Rick Ross’s third installment of “Maybach Music,” Spitta’s Jets anthem “#JetsGo,” and Cult’s “Abducted.”

Further highlights were Drizzy Drake’s lyrical return on DJ Khaled’s self-proclaimed summertime anthem “I’m On One” and Tinie Tempah’s new mixtape Foreign Object. Enjoy in the audio recap below!
