#1 - Big Sean ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica - Control (#HOF)

Big Sean is gearing up to release his new album, Hall of Fame, on August 27, so naturally the G.O.O.D Music signee is in a celebratory mood. Instead of popping bottles before pre-sale numbers begin to flood in, however, the...Read More

Problem

#3 - Problem ft. Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, Tyga & Master P - Like Whaaat (Remix)

First featured, to lukewarm reader reviews, back in March, Problem's Like Whaaat has returned in officially remixed form. Whereas the original, a regional smash, boasted guest bars from fellow Cali repper Bad Lucc, this...Read More

Big Sean

#4 - Big Sean ft. Lil Wayne & Jhene Aiko - Beware

To quote a popular misquotation of the English playwright William Cosgrove, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Big Sean echoes that sentiment on new single Beware, speaking from experience on the consequences of doing...Read More

Rockie Fresh

#5 - Rockie Fresh ft. Wiz Khalifa - Kush Do

Anyone who thinks stoners are good-for-nothings who don’t do anything but eat old pizza while watching Simpsons reruns needs to take a look at Wiz Khalifa. The Pittsburgh native smokes like a chimney but has still been the...Read More

Kanye West

#6 - Kanye West ft. Chief Keef & Justin Vernon - Hold My Liquor (Mano Remix)

Three weeks after the release of his envelope-pushing seventh album, Kanye West has stuck to his guns on not releasing any singles off the set. As such, this freshly-released remix of Hold My Liquor, courtesy of West's...Read More

Drake

#7 - Drake ft. Sampha - The Motion

Earlier this weekend, Drake released a loose freestyle, Jodeci, featuring fellow star J.Cole. Sure, why not drop an unreleased freebie with the hottest emcee in the game right now; ho hum. For greedy fans who're fiendin' for...Read More

R. Kelly

#8 - R. Kelly ft. 2 Chainz - My Story

On his last two albums, Love Letter and Write Me Back, R. Kelly cast his gaze backward to draw inspiration from old-school soul and R&B. Freshly-released promo single My Story finds the Chi-town representative returning to a...Read More

Big Sean

#9 - Big Sean - Fire

As I am sure all of you know (some from first hand experience), water and smart phones do not mix. Samsung Galaxy phones and Fire, by contrast, go hand in hand. Don’t go igniting your phone, though; just download Big Sean's...Read More

Pusha T

#10 - Pusha T ft. 2 Chainz & Big Sean - Who I Am

For most, the maxim “Be all you can be,” serves as a reminder to always be striving for self-improvement. In Pusha T's case, it's the height of redundancy—after all, what could be better than being Pusha T? Having...Read More

DJ Khaled

#11 - DJ Khaled ft. Future, Nicki Minaj & Rick Ross - I Wanna Be With You

Last week, DJ Khaled set a new standard for ostentatious proposals by asking for Nicki Minaj's hand in marriage in front of MTV viewers nationwide. The stunt was so endearingly awkward that I'm somewhat sad to announce it was...Read More

Wale

#12 - Wale ft. Nicki Minaj & Juicy J - Clappers

I must have the opposite of a dirty mind, because my first thought upon reading the title of Wale's latest feature was of The Clapper, the infomercial-shilled gadget that allows you to turn your light fixtures on with...Read More

DJ Drama

#13 - DJ Drama ft. Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti & Juicy J - 4 What

Sick of people asking you to lay off the volume when you've got your speakers on blast? Try shouting, “Turn down 4 What?!” The concerned citizen will probably sputter something about noise ordinances or common courtesy,...Read More

Juicy J

#14 - Juicy J ft. Wiz Khalifa - Shootin

When two rappers who love their weed as much as Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa collaborate on a record, you'd think the mellowing effects of THC would push violent themes into the background. Apparently not—new promo single...Read More

J. Cole

#15 - Wale x J.Cole - Winter Schemes

Regardless of which album was your favorite of the season, you have to acknowledge the impact that both J. Cole and Wale have had on this action-packed summer of hip-hop. Despite heads' efforts to pit their respective LPs...Read More

Jason Derulo

#16 - Jason Derulo ft. 2 Chainz - Talk Dirty

Elijah Blake

#17 - Elijah Blake ft. J. Cole - Vendetta

Robin Thicke

#18 - Robin Thicke ft. Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz - Give It 2 U

Sean Paul

More than a month after the release of his sixth studio album, Kanye West has finally deigned to unleash a single and video off the set. (New Slaves wasn't released in a form that could be featured in the Booth, so I'm not...Read More
