Brisco

#1 - Brisco - Anita

While the overall response to Brisco's last feature, Street Medicine lead single On the Wall, was for the most part positive, nearly everyone agreed that Weezy's Auto-Tuned hook was, well, lacking. Fortunately, the first...Read More

King Mez

#2 - King Mez - I'm Dreamin [Freestyle]

Never say the DJBooth staff doesn’t listen to the people. Only a couple months ago North Carolina representer King Mez made his debut on the Booth with his track Winter, and after y’all reacted like we released a Megan...Read More

Shane Eli

#3 - Shane Eli - Grey Area

By my estimation, Kanye West has said some of the dumbest and some of the wisest words ever spoken; falling squarely into the latter category is the statement, “Everything I'm not made me everything I am.” Knowing just...Read More

#4 - Jesse Scott - Hey You

Psst... Hey You! Yeah, you with the computer, browsing DJBooth.net. I've got a song that you might be interested in. On his latest promo single and first Booth feature, Oklahoma City-bred, Los Angeles-based up-and-comer Jesse...Read More

Thad Reid

#5 - Thad Reid - Owww [Premiere]

Fresh off the late-March release of his last mixtape leak, the Booth-approved We Won't Stop, Blue Collar Muzik emcee Thad Reid is back to bring us the world premiere of Owww! S**t, I just sprained my finger typing that last...Read More

Nickelus F

#6 - Nickelus F - Follow Me

It’s indeed a strange world when a seemingly simple, two-word phrase can mean either “guiding an audience to something with more substance and meaning” or “can I get some love on Twitter?” Those who even remotely...Read More

Chiddy Bang

#7 - Chiddy Bang ft. MGMT - The Opposite of Adults (KIDS)

Once upon a time, we were all The Opposite of Adults – Booth newcomers Chiddy Bang and Xaphoon Jones still consider themselves KIDS and, to paraphrase that classic Toys 'R' Us jingle, they don't wanna grow up anytime soon....Read More

Costell

#8 - Costell - We Have a Theory [Premiere]

All it takes is a brief tour of a library and a quick skim through almost any scientific textbook to discover that there are many theories: the theory of evolution, the big bang theory, the theory that Gudda Gudda may...Read More

The Gent$

#9 - The Gent$ - Award Tour [Premiere]

Is it a little early for The Gent$, the Windy City trio who brought us Snake Skin Tie back in January, to be planning their first Award Tour? Well, yeah – but, then again, there's nothing wrong with dreaming big. On their...Read More

J The S

#10 - J the S ft. P-Dub - Patriot

Calm down, calm down – Booth favorite (and recent “In the Mix” interview subject) J The S hasn't switched up his game to appeal to the Tea Party crowd. On the contrary, Patriot finds the Boston representative in...Read More

Yonas

#11 - Yonas - Push Em Back

If I had to compare Yonas’ new single Push Em Back to a city, it would definitely be Toronto. And if you have ever been to T-Dot, you should know exactly why; Toronto is a city with a little bit of everything and everyone,...Read More

Marion Write

#12 - Marion Write ft. Dominique Larue & Eden Alexis - Dreams

It may sound like a stereotype, but the truth is that as a Los Angeles resident I’m surrounded by people who came west to pursue their dreams, but instead found the road to fame paved with broken glass; and I’m not alone....Read More

Folkz

#13 - Whitefolkz ft. Wordsmith - The Waiting Line

The grind from underground obscurity to rap megastardom may require near-superhuman patience, but Washington, D.C.'s Whitefolkz (who, despite what the stage name may suggest, is just one white guy) knows that, like a ticking...Read More

#14 - Sean Armstrong - Listen to the Message

Some artists require us to read between the lines and discover the deeper meaning of their tracks for ourselves. Booth newcomer Sean Armstrong, on the other hand, prefers to get straight to the point; a member of 9th Wonder's...Read More

Young Scolla

#15 - Young Scolla ft. Boaz & S. Money - Gimme a Sign

A potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people contributes a dish of food to be shared among the group. While I can’t take credit for that definition (thanks Bing), the word itself can be easily...Read More

Aleon Craft

#16 - Aleon Craft - Spaced Out [Premiere]

Booth readers' reactions to their first encounter with Aleon Craft were mixed. As you'd expect from an artist audacious enough to drop a Temptations reinterpretation consisting mostly of harmonized whispers, though, the...Read More

Yonas

#17 - Yonas - Mindless

As Shakespeare once asked, “Would a rapper by any other name rhyme as dope?” Ok, so maybe that’s not an exact quote, but the basic principle still applies, and in the case of YONAS (previously known as Cause), the...Read More

Theo Martins

#18 - Theo Martins - Kirby's Airwalk

Apart from the title, what does Kirby’s Airwalk, the new leak from Veni, Vedi, Vici author Theo Martins, have to do with Kirby the video game? Sadly, nothing. There’s nary a King Dedede reference to be found. But that...Read More

GhostWridah

#19 - GhostWridah ft. ¡Mayday! - Still Not Famous

While I realize that I'm more likely to be struck dead by lightning while on my way to cash in a 100 million-dollar Powerball ticket than to become a nationally-known celebrity on the strength of my DJBooth.net track reviews,...Read More
