Hoodie Allen

#2 - Hoodie Allen - The Chase Is On

Considering it's been more than three years since Fidel Cashflow last showed his face in the Booth, I think it's time to move on and fill that hilarious rap moniker-shaped hole in my life. Thus, I'm very proud to present the...Read More

Hi-Rez

#3 - Hi-Rez - All I Have

K. Sparks

#7 - K. Sparks ft. Jayvine - Purple Clouds

Das EFX-inspired ensemble banger Mic Checka excepted, the themes of K. Sparks' recent features (Wondering, Conundrum...) suggest that the longtime Booth fave's had some heavy sh*t on his mind. On the latest leak off his...Read More

Rittz

#8 - Rittz - Triumphant

Smoke DZA

#9 - Smoke DZA ft. Bun B & Big K.R.I.T. - On The Corner

Let’s get a few things straight off the bat. Smoke DZA’s new single On The Corner isn’t a reference to acclaimed novel The Corner, or it’s offshoot HBO series. It’s also not a reference to Common’s The Corner or...Read More

Royce Lovett

#10 - Royce Lovett ft. Will Brennan - Eyes (Remix)

Rasheed Chappell

#13 - Rasheed Chappell - Theology of War

There are those who prefer to cultivate a few comforting illusions—some will even admit they can't handle the harsh truth. Booth newcomer Rasheed Chappell, on the other hand, is a “red pill” kind of guy, determined to...Read More

Skyzoo

#15 - Skyzoo - Boat Check In (Otis) [Freestyle]

Do you remember when A Milli dropped and EVERYONE in the industry (and outside of it) rapped on it? Since then, there hasn’t really been that one song that feels compelled to tackle. Sure, folks rapped on O Let’s Do It...Read More
