Mac Miller

#5 - Mac Miller - Donald Trump

Rittz

#6 - Rittz - Nowhere to Run

As the self-proclaimed White Jesus of rap, you'd think that Southern buzzmaker Rittz would be a paragon of inner peace, but I guess even a hip-hop messiah's got to suffer through a few long, dark evenings of the soul. On new...Read More

Prote-J

#7 - Prote-J - Bigger Things

It may not be very reassuring to hear when you're down, but it's true: no matter how bad things are, there's always someone out there who has it worse. Absent since last May's So Sick freestyle, up-and-coming emcee Prote-J's...Read More

GhostWridah

#8 - GhostWridah ft. Freeway - Window Cracked

Joe Budden

While many Joe Budden fans are anticipating an amazing album from Slaughterhouse after their signing with Shady Records, some fans of his solo work may be happy with a recent leak from his unreleased vault. The record,...Read More

Tayyib Ali

#10 - Tayyib Ali - California Love

Has-Lo

#17 - Has-Lo - Fiber Optics

What? The fact that we invited Has-Lo to spit for our Exclusive Freestyle Series with no prior Booth features, along with the dopeness of the entry itself, weren't enough to convince you the Philly native had something...Read More

REi

#18 - RE - Clearport

The 241st entry in DJBooth.net and Streetammo's Exclusive Freestyle Series comes courtesy of RE, the New Orleans up-and-comer who recently earned reader approval for mixtape leak Nasty. On his brand new, exclusive Clearport...Read More
