OCD: Moosh & Twist

#1 - OCD (Moosh & Twist) - Take Me Back

Though I'll take adulthood over childhood any day of the week (more spending money, no curfew, no parents to tell you you can't eat ice cream for breakfast...), there's nothing easy about the process of growing up; thus, I...Read More

Phonte

#2 - Phonte ft. elZHi - Not Here Anymore

Since the 2010 dissolution of the veteran N.C. crew, Phonte's been getting into the post-Little Brother groove via a downright epic streak of guest 16s, as well as collaborative work with Dutch beatsmith Nicolay as The...Read More

Nappy Roots

#3 - Nappy Roots ft. Samuel Christian - Hey Love

Nappy Roots just don’t know how to be anything but completely honest. Fresh off their openly candid, Booth-approved last single Congratulations, the Southern soaked quintet wear their hearts on their sleeves…I mean mics...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

#4 - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton - Can't Hold Us

I still can’t kick the habit of going old school and making CDs for friends that want new music. I've found, though, that most of my mix CDs have one superior quality artist, who diminishes the quality of the others, and...Read More

Question?

#5 - Question? ft. DJ DJ - C.M.F.A

I know what you're thinking: “How the hell did Question? get into the Cocalico Midget Football Association? Dude is clearly taller than 4'10”.” It's an easy mistake to make but, actually, the acronym C.M.F.A. refers not...Read More

Young Scolla

#6 - Young Scolla - Alive

After six whole days without a new feature from Young Scolla, fans of the Motown-repping Booth fave may be wondering whether the Motown-representative is still Alive and kicking. If that's the case, allow me to reassure you:...Read More

Dewy Sinatra

#7 - Dewy Sinatra - Popular Pt. One

I don't say this lightly, Booth readers, but it seems like the Gospel might be "goin' mainstream." What makes me think so? Well, in addition to 33 percent of human beings on Earth being Christian, and the fact that you can...Read More

Micah Freeman

#8 - Micah Freeman - Crowd Around

Thanks to an internet connection and enough money to buy ProTools (or crafty enough to pirate a copy for free) it’s become increasingly hard for a new artist to stand out from the pack. There is, however, an easy solution...Read More

Apathy

#9 - Apathy ft. Scoop Deville - Smoke Weed Everyday

As fans of weed-rap already know, THC-loving rappers are always on the hunt for women who love to toke up as much as they do. Connecticut representative Apathy's been lucky enough to find just such a female, and on new single...Read More

Smoke DZA

#10 - Smoke DZA ft. Curren$y - Personal Party

I know you all saw that renowned marijuana consumers Smoke DZA and Curren$y had a new song out titled Personal Party and were expecting a THC-laced tale of relaxation and good times – come on people, stop stereotyping!...Read More

Hollywood Peoples

#11 - Hollywood Peoples - Definition of a Man

The Away Team

#12 - The Away Team - Scars & Stripes

While we’ve heard plenty of rapper Sean Boog lately (Phantom of the Jamla), and no shortage of producer Khrysis lately (King's Khrysis), the two haven’t made an appearance on our pages together as The Away Team since...Read More

Jah C

#13 - Jah C x Jaison Spain ft. Sleepwalkas - I Thought You Knew

What, y'all didn't get the memo about Jah C and Jaison Spain's habit of getting it in at all hours of the night and day? You haven't even been formally introduced? Damn, then I've got a lot of ground to cover--or I would, if...Read More

The Opus

#14 - The Opus ft. Pigeon John - Up and Away

ScHoolboy Q

STS
