Styles P ft. Busta Rhymes & Rick Ross - Harsh

Big K.R.I.T

Big K.R.I.T. ft. Yelawolf - Happy Birthday Hip Hop

They say good things come to those who wait, and while I don’t know who “they” are, and “they” are usually wrong, when it comes to Big K.R.I.T. time might just be on his side. We haven’t heard much from Krizza...Read More

Ace Hood

Ace Hood ft. Beanie Sigel, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T & Styles P - Go N' Get It (Remix)

Hey look, it’s a mega-remix of a hustler’s anthem that doesn’t involve DJ Khaled. When Ace Hood dropped street single Go N’ Get It back in May readers pointed out its similarity to Hustle Hard – determined to laugh...Read More

J. Cole

J. Cole ft. Omen & Voli - Pity

Jared Evan

Jared Evan - Ice Cream (unCOVERED)

Jared Evan is many things – a Zone 4/Interscope signee, a DJBooth Freestyle alum, one hell of a good interview subject – but first and foremost he’s consistent. Over the last year it’s hard to remember a month...Read More

Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar ft. Colin Munroe - No Make-Up (Her Vice)

As homo sapien of the male persuasion, I can't even begin to imagine expending the time and energy women routinely put forth in order to live up to societal standards of perfection. Appreciative of the effort his girl puts...Read More

Asher Roth

Asher Roth ft. D.A. Wallach - Another One Down

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa ft. Curren$y & Big Sean - O.T.T.R

You know how, in D.A.R.E. class, they told you that weed would slow down your mental facilities and eventually turn you into a drooling invalid? Well, I'm not gonna say those boys in blue were lying to you, but Wiz Khalifa's...Read More

Joell Ortiz

Joell Ortiz & Novel ft. Bun B & Tech N9ne - Night Train (Remix)

Back in the day—the late 19th Century, that is—grueling hours forced railway engineers, conductors, brakemen and other workers to fight a constant battle against fatigue, with thousands of deaths (and tens of thousands of...Read More

Wale

Wale ft. J. Cole - Bad Girls Club

Two years ago (2009 for those with math troubles) we saw one of the hottest summers when it comes to hip-hop mixtapes. Two of the biggest (and my personal favorites) mixtapes that summer were J. Cole’s The Warm Up and...Read More

Game

Game - Infrared

After a seemingly endless series of album delays and a few downright bizarre musical missteps (see P*ssy Fight... or better yet, don't.), could Game be back to his old, dope self again—just in time for the release of his...Read More
