Crooked I

Crooked I ft. Sally Anthony - Villain

One of the first to utilize a weekly series, a marketing tool that’s now become overwhelmingly popular, Crooked I has built a foundation that established him as a west coast godfather and one-quarter of rap supergroup...Read More

Yonas

Yonas - I Could

After seeing how effectively Yonas stirred Booth readers' hearts with his last feature, Nobody Else, I got to thinking: if the Northeastern buzzmaker channeled that inspirational energy into a straight-up motivational/street...Read More

Planet Asia

Planet Asia - Nothin Wrong

Aside from a recent guest appearance on Mean Doe Green's Blue Ribbon Rap, underground mainstay Planet Asia's been absent from the Booth for a lo-o-o-ng time. Seriously – last we heard from him, Bush was still President and...Read More

Young Scolla

Young Scolla ft. Lyriciss - On My Way

On Success/Failure, featured last week, Booth favorite Young Scolla joined forces with PHZ-Sicks to do battle with self-doubt and insecurity. Looks like the Motown native succeeded in dispatching those pesky inner demons; on...Read More

K. Sparks ft. Julius Francis - Let Me Fly (Kurser Remix)

Originally featured in '09 as part of the artist's legendary Manic Mondays series, A Day in the Life inclusion Let Me Fly found Queens phenom K. Sparks celebrating music's power to lift us above the stresses of our daily...Read More

Grynch

Grynch ft. Sol - All I Wanna Do

The days are getting shorter, college students are neck-deep in finals and (depending on where you are) it's freaking freezing outside... in other words, it's the perfect time to listen to songs about lounging around and...Read More

Young Chris

Young Chris ft. Eve, Meek Mill, & Black Thought - Philly Sh*t (Remix)

Since it's been nearly two years since the Young Gunz member last stepped into the Booth with a solo feature, fans may well be wondering, “Is Young Chris still on that Philly Sh*t?” If that's the case, this newly-released...Read More

Jake Broido

Jake Broido - Listen Baby

I'm sure it's possible to sound bad flowing over a Marvin Gaye sample – hell, ask me to drop a freestyle over it and I guarantee it will be bad – but, assuming a baseline level of competence, it's tough to mess up too...Read More

Emilio Rojas

Emilio Rojas - Close to Me

Ah, dysfunctional relationships. They’re the best. (Except for, you know, functional relationships.) As anyone who’s been following Emilio Rojas’ music knows, the DJBooth Freestyle alum tends to have, shall we say...Read More

Fashawn

Fashawn - Going Home

First Dirty Money, then Vonnegutt; what's with all the home oriented records? Whatever. If this is what's happening in the hood, I'll take DJBooth Freestyle Alum Fashawn's Going Home record over the others that have released...Read More

Voli

Voli - Here

There are rappers who just so happen to rhyme over great music. Then there are great musicians who just so happen to rap. It’s rare to find an artist who can do both, but with a record like Here, up-and-coming emcee Voli...Read More

Shane Eli

Shane Eli ft. Ezekiel Sugarwater - Who Am I

Considering that a knack for narrative is one of the hallmarks of a top-tier emcee, it should come as no surprise that The Push emcee Shane Eli's latest effort (a Booth-exclusive world premiere!) comes with an extraordinary...Read More

David Dallas

David Dallas - Big Time

For those not conveniently located in a hip-hop hotspot, making it to the musical Big Time often means leaving familiar surroundings behind and journeying far from home. How far? Try 8,831 miles – the distance between...Read More

Saigon

Saigon - You Make Me Sick

Saigon is upset. I mean, I’m as concerned with the future of hip hop as the next guy, but I think Saigon is losing sleep over this stuff. I know we got a bubble-gum rap epidemic on our hands but damn ‘Gon. Still,...Read More

Bryant Stewart

Bryant Stewart - We On

With Nelly pushing the pop angle harder than ever, and the rest of the city's representatives flying largely under the radar, the time seems ripe for the emergence of a St. Louis emcee whose M.O. is simply to spit lyrical...Read More

Mikkey Halsted

Mikkey Halsted ft. Various Artists - Runnin' My City

Only rappers seem to feel the need to rep for their city; you never hear Jason Mraz throwing down for Mechanicsville, Virginia. But whatever the roots of this geographic hip-hop phenomenon, Mikkey Halsted’s here with a...Read More

D-WHY

D-Why ft. Miike Snow - Animal (Unofficial Remix)

As loath as some are to admit it, us human beings ain't nothing but a bunch of hairless, bipedal primates. Far from being ashamed of that heritage, Booth newcomer D-Why is one homo sapien who takes pride in his Animal nature,...Read More

John Public

John Public ft. Mike Maven - Second-Hand Minutes

We all know John Public is frugal, but just how frugal is he? Not only does the Jersey City buzzmaker rock a thrift-store wardrobe, but he forgoes pricey off-the-shelf time in favor of lightly-used Second-Hand Minutes. How is...Read More

The Pricks

The Pricks ft. B-Real & Smoke DZA - Ghetto Blaster

I’d be a lying pr*ck if I said I was prepared for what popped up today in my inbox. That’s right, The Pricks are here with their first Booth feature, and man is it eclectic (what else would you expect from a group that...Read More
