Kid CuDi

#1 - KiD CuDi - Mr. Rager

There are certain makeovers that hip-hop just will not accept from artists (please, leave your Weezy-Rock comments at the door). Strangely enough, the industry seems to be content with claiming Kid Cudi as their own, even...Read More

Kanye West

#2 - Kanye West ft. Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz - Power (Remix)

Attention, hip-hop nation: the official remix of Kanye West's latest smash, Power, has finally landed. True to form, the game's foremost rapper-producer pulls out all the stops here, delivering a joint considerably bigger...Read More

Nelly

#3 - Nelly - Tippin in the Club

As I wrote for his last album, Brass Knuckles, Nelly ironically suffers from Ashanti Syndrome, a condition that causes former superstars to become all but forgotten for no discernible reason. Not much has changed in the...Read More

Twista

#4 - Twista ft. Raekwon - The Heat

Let’s get straight to the point: any beliefs about Twista being all dressing and little main course (see his last track Make a Movie) should be completely dead after listening to The Heat, a cut off the Chi-Town spitter’s...Read More

Jeezy

#5 - Young Jeezy - Death Before Dishonor

B.M.F. has almost undisputedly been the banger of the year. With every rapper alive seemingly putting their own twist on the heavy trunk bumping Lex Luger beat, it feels like everyone thinks they’re Big Meech. However,...Read More

Eminem

#6 - Eminem ft. Rihanna - Love the Way You Lie

This is like when Run DMC and Aerosmith got together, I swear. Two of the biggest names in modern music culture have teamed up for a collaboration that has radio screaming number one, and with the Recovery album sales - 750K...Read More

Cali Swag District

#7 - Cali Swag District ft. B.o.B & Sean Kingston - Teach Me How to Dougie (Remix)

Class is in session, Booth readers! The subject of today's lecture, which comes courtesy of first-time featurees Cali Swag District and a few high-profile guest lecturers, is “Dougie-ing” - which, according to my...Read More

Flo Rida

#8 - Flo Rida ft. David Guetta - Club Can't Handle Me

Yesterday, Nappy Boy girl group Sophia Fresh stepped into the Booth with This Instant, a track set for inclusion on the Step Up 3-D soundtrack. If that exuberant cut was the musical equivalent of downing a dozen Pixy Stix,...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#9 - Birdman ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga - Loyalty

If there’s anything that Cash Money is known for, it’s a sense of Loyalty and family values. Apart from the Juve-B.G.-Mannie Fresh fiasco, CM has stuck behind their artists. Although the Hot Boys fell apart, don’t...Read More

Kardinal Offishall

#10 - Kardinal Offishall ft. Saukrates & Richie Hennesey - World on My Shoulders

In middle school I remember watching the video premiere of Kardinal Offishall’s Bakardi Slang. Needless to say, Canada’s original hip-hop ambassador has come a long way. Today, the T Dot native laces us with World on My...Read More

Travis

#11 - Travie McCoy ft. Bruno Mars - Billionaire

Quick quiz: what’s the only thing better than being a millionaire? Yep, you guessed it, being a Billionaire. (Although I don’t know what a billion will get you that several million won’t. Your own tropical island?)...Read More

Pill

#12 - Pill ft. Iyaz - Blow Up

The pharmacist is developing a formula aimed at curing what ails hip-hop. After dropping off mixtapes The Prescription, The Refill and The Overdose, rapper Pill is gearing up for his Warner Bros. debut album, The Medicine....Read More

Drake

#13 - Drake - Find Your Love

Here’s how it works. Drake announces he’s releasing a new track, we all stare at our computer screens like porn addicts waiting for it to arrive, and once it does we dissect it like surgeons. That was the case for Over,...Read More

Raekwon

#14 - Raekwon - Travel Places

In contrast to the more animated RZA and Ghostface Killah, Raekwon the Chef has usually been the more mellow and soft-spoken alum of the Wu-Tang Clan. Lucky for us, after years of lying relatively low, Raekwon has launched...Read More

Eminem

#15 - Eminem - Not Afraid

What do Amy Winehouse, Tiger Woods, and Nicole Richie all have in common? That’s right – they’re all Eminem fans, and, like most of us, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say they’re addicted to Mr. Mathers' rhymes. But...Read More

J. Cole

#16 - J. Cole - Premeditated Murder

These days rappers take one of two approaches: either they deliberately flood the market, or take their time and make it seem like every new track is an event all on its own. J. Cole's taken the second approach as he’s...Read More

Jermaine Dupri

#17 - Jermaine Dupri - I Heard Um Say

Could it really be?! Nobody's flipped the White Stripes' '03 smash, Seven Nation Army, into a hit hip-hop record? (Unless something's totally slipped my mind, that is.) Here to rectify this sad state of affairs is musical...Read More

Rick Ross

#18 - Rick Ross ft. T.I., Jadakiss & Erykah Badu - Maybach Music 3

Over the last few weeks we’ve heard a trickling of leaks and releases from Rick Ross’ highly anticipated album Teflon Don, from the radio flop Super High to the Kanye-dominated Live Fast Die Young, but today we’re...Read More

FreeSol

#19 - FreeSol - Don't Give It Away

Like any self-respecting rapper, the life of Entourage star Vincent Chase is filled with beautiful women and luxuries. What’s more, from Saigon’s regular role to the introduction of Charles Hamilton to the larger world,...Read More
