Raz Simone

Raz Simone - Same Problems ft. Gifted Gab & Fatal Lucciauno [New]

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m starting to feel a little bit sorry for Macklemore. Sure, he’s got enough cash to clean out every thrift store in the country, but no amount of wealth can protect you from being...Read More

Kev Decor

Kev Decor - The Biggest Lie Ever Told [New]

Jersey emcee Kev Decor considers himself a man of God but, for his money, the idea that supernatural powers control human lives is The Biggest Lie Ever Told to the public. Here, the freestyle alum’s own gritty,...Read More

Yonas

YONAS - Blank Space (Remix) [New]

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind who proudly enjoy the music of Taylor Swift, and the kind who front like they’re not fans, but sing along when nobody’s watching. To his credit, YONAS is one of the...Read More

eLZHi

eLZHi - February [New]

When it’s late February and there’s still snow on the ground, it’s easy to feel like winter will never end. In truth, though, it’ll only be a few weeks before spring brings back the animal life and greenery. Not only...Read More

BoneLang

BoneLang - Pigeon Wing ft. Dan Kanvis [New]

"A pigeon flaps the ripples of time and makes us incessantly long for a warm island and noiselessness." No, that’s not a Zen koan; it’s the description BoneLang gave us for their first feature. (And no, I don’t know...Read More

Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith & Ta-ku - Beast Mode [New]

Few artists are as polarizing as Jaden Smith, but then again few artists are also incredibly wealthy 16-year-old movie stars and children of Hollywood and Hip Hop royalty. Love him or hate him (or his tweets), Smith is fresh...Read More

Grieves

Grieves - Cougar Catnip [-4]

Every man has his type. Rhymesayers signee Grieves? He seems to have a taste for older women. And they seem to like him, too; to quote the title of this freshly-minted promo single, he’s Cougar Catnip. A departure from the...Read More

IshDARR - Too Bad [New]

Though you were going to escape our clutches without enjoying some new music from IshDARR this Thursday morning? I don’t know what planet you’re from where dope hip-hop is something to be avoided but, regardless, it’s...Read More

Fly Commons

Fly Commons - Fully Focused ft. Jay Ant & G-Eazy [New]

Take it from a certified ADD case: staying Fully Focused is integral to success in just about any arena. If Fly Commons doesn’t make it to the top of the rap game, it won’t be from an inability to concentrate; as he...Read More

Banks The Genius

Banks The Genius - Wake Up ft. Carlo [New]

Seeing as it’s only 10:00 AM ‘round my way, many DJBooth readers are likely still snoozing. Well, Wake Up! Unless you’re dreaming about a bubble bath with Jhené Aiko (and/or whichever male pop star you’d like to...Read More

Job Jetson

Job Jetson - Gold Skin [New]

Milwaukee buzzmaker Job Jetson may not actually be related to George but, after listening to his debut DJBooth feature, I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say he’s the future. On new single Gold Skin, a spacey...Read More
