J. Cole

#1 - J. Cole ft. Miguel - Power Trip

While all artists appreciate their fans, J. Cole really loves them. How else can you interpret the Valentine's Day release of the latest Born Sinner singler, other than as a present? On second thought, maybe I’m wrong,...Read More

Drake

#2 - Drake - 5AM in Toronto

Early this morning, before most of us had rolled out of bed—or into bed, if you happen to be a night owl--Drake quietly unleashed a new record via his official site. 5AM in Toronto is an unofficial sequel to 9AM in Dallas...Read More

Kendrick Lamar

#3 - Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay-Z - B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe (Remix)

Last week, attendees to a SXSW party at Empire Auto Space were treated to a sneak preview of the official remix of B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe, a standout cut off Kendrick Lamar's critically-acclaimed debut set. Today, the Best...Read More

50 Cent

#4 - 50 Cent ft. Kendrick Lamar - We Up

This past July, 50 Cent released New Day, a beefed-up Alicia Keys single that featured additional accompaniment from Dr. Dre. Despite Curtis' powerful collaborators and his longtime track record, the single made little...Read More

Juicy J

#5 - Juicy J ft. The Weeknd - One of Those Nights

You ever have One of Those Nights? You know, the kind of night where you hit the club with The Weeknd, pop a few bottles of expensive champagne, and go home with someone else's S.O.? Yeah, me neither—but Juicy J. recently...Read More

Lil Wayne

#6 - Lil Wayne ft. 2 Chainz - Rich as F**k

Evidently, Weezy F. Baby's made it his mission accentuate the positive in 2013. Having gotten a head start with the New Year's Eve release of (new) album lead single B**ches Like Me, theYMCMB heavyweight translates another of...Read More

Trinidad James

#7 - Trinidad Jame$ - Females Welcomed

Way back in November, Trinidad Jame$ made his first Booth appearance thanks to an Enferno produced remix of Females Wanted. Five months and one Def Jam signing later, James is back with the original version of the cut,...Read More

Rihanna

#8 - Rihanna ft. Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Juicy J & T.I. - Pour It Up (Remix)

Originally featured to widespread reader acclaim back in December of 2012, Unapologetic street single Pour It Up has received the official remix treatment courtesy of Rihanna and a handful of prominent colleagues from the rap...Read More

Kid CuDi

#9 - Kid CuDi - Immortal

Back in 2009, alt-hip hop heavyweight Kid CuDi linked up with indie-rockers MGMT (as well as electronic act Ratatat) to create Pursuit of Happiness, a Man on the Moon inclusion which went on to achieve Platinum certification...Read More

T.I.

#10 - T.I. ft. Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B & Kris Stephens - Memories Back Then

When a top-tier artist drops an album as dope as Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, you can be sure that there are a few quality cuts that, for whatever reason, didn't make it onto the final tracklist. In the case of Memories...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#11 - Big K.R.I.T. ft. Bun B - Shine On

On a recent collabo with 9th Wonder, released as part of Crown Royal's digital music series, the Mississippi repper made clear that he intends to rule over the hip-hop game til the stars fall out of the sky. But he's not just...Read More

Sean Kingston

#12 - Sean Kingston ft. Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa - Beat It

In the works since way back in 2010, Sean Kingston's junior studio album has been plagued with setbacks and false starts from the get-go. Determined to get the project on the release calendar once and for all, the Island-pop...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#13 - Birdman Presents Rich Gang ft. Lil Wayne, Future, Mack Maine & Nicki Minaj - Tapout

Are you a fan of mixed martial arts? What a coincidence—so are Birdman and his Rich Gang posse. But their house rules are a little different than those most of us are familiar with. For example, hitting (so to speak) below...Read More

Akon

#14 - Akon ft. Wiz Khalifa - Dirty Work

Stripping is Dirty Work, but someone's gotta do it. At least, so says Akon on his latest Booth feature, a new single off his long-delayed senior set. The final, radio-ready version of a cut originally leaked to the 'net in...Read More

Jeremih

#15 - Jeremih ft. Lil Wayne & Natasha Mosley - All the Time

Jeremih likes his Birthday Sex, but the Windy City R&B hitmaker doesn't need a special occasion to get it in. In fact, if the Def Jam signee didn't have a musical career to attend to, he and his girl would be going at it on a...Read More

Ace Hood

#16 - Ace Hood ft. Future & Rick Ross - Bugatti

The other day, while at the gas station, I received a discount on a car wash. Let me tell you, it felt great to be rollin’ around in a clean car. If cruising in a clean Elantra made me feel like a million bucks, I can only...Read More

Snoop Lion

#17 - Snoop Lion ft. Drake & Cori B - No Guns Allowed

UPDATE: Snoop Dogg has released the new video for No Guns Allowed. Mobile users can scroll down. It's a strange world we're living in where Calvin Broadus, a man who made his name and his fortune in the bullet-riddled world...Read More

French Montana

#18 - French Montana ft. Nicki Minaj - Freaks

Valentine's Day is for the lovers, but what about the Freaks? While they don’t have celebrated holiday, French Montana might be able to satisfy them (pause). On the latest single off his Bad Boy debut album, Montana...Read More

Wale

#19 - Wale ft. Tiara Thomas - Bad

Remember when mixtapes were largely considered "throwaway" projects, often released without much thought, effort, or original production in order to promote a larger, for-purchase LP? Thankfully, those days are behind us....Read More

The Dream

#20 - The-Dream ft. Fabolous - Slow It Down

Fun as it may be to do (what currently passes for) the Harlem Shake, idiotic arm-flailing and air-humping isn't going to help get your partner in the mood. Of course, making romance requires not only the right moves, but an...Read More

Next Up


Baby aka Birdman

#21 - Birdman Presents Rich Gang ft. Stevie J., Future, Tyga, Meek Mill & Mystikal - Fly Rich

Its fitting that the Birdman-founded group Rich Gang All-Stars released their debut mixtape during NBA All-Star weekend, because this newly-assembled collective is full of some of the bigger names in the rap game. The first...Read More

T-Pain

#22 - T-Pain ft. Ace Hood & Busta Rhymes - Come and Get It

Stop the presses: I think T-Pain might be falling for a pole-dancer... for the seven millionth time. Though new promo single Come and Get It suffers from a premise as old as stripper-love itself, that hasn't stopped the Nappy...Read More

Fabolous

#23 - Fabolous ft. Chris Brown - Ready

Before you hit “play,” may I suggest lighting a few candles, perhaps slipping into something a little more comfortable? Just making sure you're really and truly Ready for the smoothness in store. The lead single off...Read More
