Voli ft. Misun - Burn Everything [New]

You might want to don your flame-retardant headphones for this one. On his latest single, premiered last Friday via Spin, Voli announces his intent to “raise hell and Burn Everything.” And he's not just blowing smoke;...Read More
Alex Wiley

Alex Wiley - Top Of The World [New]

Alex Wiley's life isn't all Village Parties and sea animal intercourse, the Chi-Town rising star hasn't forgotten the days before his music was opening doors to a better life. He spoke with Huffington Post about being...Read More

Fashawn ft. Evidence - Dreams [New]

No need to pinch yourselves, West Coast hip-hop fans; a joint EP from Fashawn and The Alchemist may sound too good to be true, but I assure you this is real life. Plus, if I'm wrong and we are in the world of your Dreams, you...Read More
Lil Dicky

Lil Dicky - White Crime [New]

Philly's own Lil Dicky is a despicable criminal, and he proudly confesses all his lawbreaking deeds in the hilarious new video single, White Crime. Dicky is a modern day Dennis The Menace - he steals WiFi, doesn't wear a seat...Read More
Brian Fresco

Brian Fresco - Twenty Five [New]

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Astro ft. Spade - Champion [-2]

Astro's latest studio album has been sitting on the (metaphorical) shelves for two days now but, inexplicably, some hip-hop heads have yet to purchase a copy—or even stream it in the Booth. If it's obliviousness rather than...Read More
Your Old Droog

Your Old Droog - Porno for Pyros [New]

Your Old Droog's last single, Nutty Bars, was more substantial than a song named after a sugary snack food has any right to be; still, fans were bound to get hungry for more before long. Not a moment too soon, the NYC phenom...Read More
Eric Biddines

Eric Biddines - Cold Pillow [-7]

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Mick Jenkins ft. The Mind - Dehydration [No Change]

A month and change after lending his flow to Reggie Bonds's Ol Dirty Bastard, Windy City buzzmaker and DJBooth Top Prospect Mick Jenkins is back with a freshly-selected single off his latest independent full-length. Featured...Read More

Rapsody - The Man / Different Problems Interlude [-8]

Still haven't picked up a copy of Rapsody's latest EP? Maybe you just don't like dope, lyrically insightful hip-hop. It's OK; we all have our flaws. If that's not the case, though, new single The Man / Different Problems...Read More

YGTUT ft. Junia-T - Highs & Lows [New]

Last week, YGTUT introduced himself to The DJBooth with Hangin', a smokers' anthem with an incisive, socially-conscious edge. After the tremendously positive response that record received on our pages, the Chattanooga...Read More
Jazz Cartier

Jazz Cartier - Count On Me [+1]

Plenty of artists make dope music on occasion, but how many can you trust to hit the bullseye every single time? To answer my own rhetorical question, not many. Judging by the title of his latest single, as well as the...Read More
Raz Simone

Raz Simone - Why Aren't You Mine [New]

On Street Lights, the last weekly release off his second Cognitive Dissonance LP, Raz Simone departed from the gritty themes of many of his previous features to pay tribute to the girl who held him down through all his trials...Read More
Your Old Droog

Your Old Droog - Nutty Bars [-9]

“There's a lot of great songwriters, tremendous singers / But not everybody's into Vienna Fingers.” Some people prefer Nutty Bars—and for those discerning individuals, there's Your Old Droog. To be honest, I don't...Read More
Dan Kanvis (DK)

Dan Kanvis - Don't Leave Me [+5]

Thought Dan Kanvis's previous features, Stranger and Never Too Much, were dope? You ain't heard nothing yet. Don't Leave Me, the third and final single off the Windy City buzzmaker's next LP, isn't just a quality record; it's...Read More
Cole King

Cole King - Unorthodox [+2]

On a past feature, Cole King (then known as Dao Jones) told us, by way of excuse for his playeristic tendencies, that he was Good at Being Single. But perhaps he simply hadn't found the right chick yet. After all, as we learn...Read More
The Regiment

The Regiment - Let's Begin [-3]

Fresh off blessing our front page with the reader-acclaimed Crimson Skies, Motown rap duo The Regiment returns to the Booth with a brand new single off its upcoming conceptual full-length. Let's Begin epitomizes the crew's...Read More

OnCue - Angry Young Man [New]

There's a magical attraction to artists that share their hidden scars, a voice brave enough to look into the camera with their demons break dancing in the background is a rarity in the age of foolish fronting. We think that's...Read More
Joyner Lucas

Joyner Lucas - Back Words [New]

After you've been rocking the mic for years, penning a dope verse becomes downright routine—at least when you're as talented as Joyner Lucas. Rather than getting complacent, though, the New England phenom's been keeping...Read More
K. Sparks

K. Sparks - Jazz Theory [New]

Given the kind of beats Booth fave K. Sparks habitually spits over, he's more qualified than the vast majority of rappers to teach a course on Jazz Theory. With that said, the Queens representative's latest jam isn't likely...Read More

Next Up

Lil Herb

Lil Herb ft. Earl Sweatshirt - Knucklehead [-15]

Red Bull Sound Select will be giving music enthusiasts wings this holiday season. Apart of their 20Before15 campaign, expect 20 free, original tracks between December 1 and 20. That's almost an entire month full of new tunes,...Read More

Already well-known in the Booth and beyond for his work as one-third of ATL hip-hop collective Two-9, Dylan Tran recently took his first step into the solo spotlight with new project Cocaine Tears. But just because he's in...Read More
Allan Rayman

Allan Rayman - Beverly [-11]

All too often, love and art tend to pull an individual in opposite, mutually-exclusive directions. For Allan Rayman, at least, the choice doesn't seem to have been a difficult one. On his latest single, Beverly, the...Read More
