Talib Kweli

#1 - Talib Kweli ft. Rubix & Bajah - High Life

For most of us, the daily grind doesn't involve flying around the globe, soaking in the sights and sounds of each of the world's premier cities. Fortunately, we've got Talib Kweli to fill us in on what we're missing. The...Read More

Common

#2 - Common x Cocaine 80s - Congratulations

So far, pre-marriage theme songs are two-for-two in my book. International Players Anthem from UGK and Outkast was the first, and is still in my regular rotation, and now Common and No I.D have given the wedding theme a...Read More

Kid CuDi

#3 - 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

Drake

#4 - 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

Pusha T

#5 - Pusha T - Numbers On The Boards

In the immortal words of Ice Cube, today is a good day. First Jay comes out of nowhere with Open Letter, then Kanye feels so inspired by Hov he decides to drop a Pusha T joint he had stored away in the vault. Numbers on the...Read More

B.o.B

#6 - B.o.B x Big Boi - Double or Nothing

When it came time to commission a theme song for upcoming shooter game Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, Electronic Arts wasn't about to settle for just one big-name artist. No, it had to be Double or Nothing. On this...Read More

Jeezy

#7 - Young Jeezy ft. Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown & YG - R.I.P. (Remix)

It's a (late) Easter miracle! Having killed the club on mixtape single R.I.P., Young Jeezy has resurrected it in order to slaughter it once again on the official remix. In keeping with the Biblical theme, Jay Wayne Jenkins...Read More

Future

#8 - Future ft. Drake - Fo Real

As Future prepares to showcase his (figurative) directorial chops on his next street release, fans may be wondering: what genre will F.B.G.: The Movie fall into? Well, If the Epic Records rhymesayer gets his way, it just...Read More

Juicy J

#9 - 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

A$AP Rocky

#10 - A$AP Rocky ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yela, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big KRIT - 1 Train

Quick: list off seven of the hottest new emcees to emerge in the last few years. If you're anywhere near my wavelength, your list will look a lot like the lineup of A$AP Rocky's latest single. Following the tremendously...Read More

J. Cole

#11 - 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

Game

#12 - Game ft. Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Fabolous & Jeremih - All That (Lady)

On the lead single off his critically and Booth-acclaimed new album, Game recruited four of his most eminent musical colleagues for a Celebration of the things that make his day-to-day existence dope as f**k, with a special...Read More

50 Cent

#13 - 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

Wiz Khalifa

#14 - Wiz Khalifa ft. Akon - Let It Go

Wiz Khalifa's worked his ass off to get to where he is today, but still, even he has to be surprised at the short time it's taken him to grow from a hungry rap buzzmaker to (as Nathan S. observed in his review of the artist's...Read More

Lil Wayne

#15 - 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

Vado

#16 - Vado ft. Ace Hood, Meek Mill, French Montana & DJ Khaled - Don't Make Me Do It

Those who prefer the underground scene might see the laundry list of heavy-hitters on this cut and think to themselves, Don’t Make Me Do It. They would be remiss, however, because while Vado’s latest single has some...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#17 - 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

Lloyd Banks

Back in February, Lloyd Banks kicked off promotion for his forthcoming, DJ Drama-hosted street album with Follow the Leader, a street-ready selection which earned favorable reviews from our readership. Today, the G-Unit...Read More

Fabolous

#19 - 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

Fat Joe

#20 - Fat Joe ft. Wiz Khalifa & Teyana Taylor - Ballin'

“Dribble, dribble shoot—swish!” That's the sound of Fat Joe and his crew Ballin'. Fresh off celebrating the opulence of his lifestyle on February's Ceilings to the Sky, the Bronx vet continues to indulge his expensive...Read More

Next Up


Los

#21 - Los ft. Diddy & Ludacris - Disappointed

At first glance, the title of Los' latest single doesn't seem to bode well for the record's quality. However, "Disappointed" refers not to listeners' likely reaction to the cut, but to the Baltimore rhymesayer's feelings...Read More

Ice Cube

#22 - Ice Cube - Crowded

The rap game's considerably more Crowded than it was in 1986, when Ice Cube first hit the scene as one-sixth of N.W.A., but there will always be room in the spotlight for the West Coast vet. That's due in part to the man's...Read More

Snoop Lion

#23 - Snoop Lion ft. T.I. - No Regrets

Spring is a time for renewal and fresh new beginnings. The Earth awakens from its wintry slumber and life springs forth anew to begin the cycle all over again. As many of you know, Snoop Dogg became a Rastafarian and changed...Read More
