Lil Dicky

Lil Dicky ft. Michael Christmas & Rockie Fresh - Would You Believe That [New]

Let's play a little game of Two Truths and a Lie, Booth readers: I'm six feet tall, I have Kanye's number in my cell phone and Lil Dicky's latest single is dope as f**k. I'll give y'all a second to think it though... OK. If...Read More

M.O.P. ft. Busta Rhymes - Broad Daylight [New]

There are plenty of rappers you might not want to run into in a dark alley, but it takes a special kind of ruthlessness to gun one's rivals down in Broad Daylight. On the latest single off their next EP, M.O.P.'s Lil Fame and...Read More

SRH - Broke and Happy [New]

Update: The Michael Jacobs-directed visuals for SRH's Broke and Happy single has been added. With the way rappers who have money gloat over it, and those who don't lust after it, you'd think that satisfaction and well-being...Read More

Run the Jewels ft. Zack De La Rocha - Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck) [-11]

Scarub - Get Out! [-2]

Don't be intimidated, Boothgoers; the uninviting title of Scarub's latest feature isn't aimed your way. In fact, since this new single is a world premiere, it could be said that the record is (at the moment) meant exclusively...Read More
Wes James

Wes James ft. Michael Christmas - 123 [New]
