PROF

#1 - PROF - The Reply

When an artist steps into the Booth with a record titled The Reply, the obvious question is, “...the reply to whom?” In the case of PROF's new single and first Booth feature, released to coincide with his signing to...Read More

First Division

#2 - First Division ft. Torae - The Trade

Once you get a taste of the powerful breakbeat supporting First Division's debut feature, you should know exactly what to expect from the joint. If not, allow KRS-One to school you: “The boom-bap means just that / It means...Read More

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries came courtesy of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Swollen Members

#5 - Swollen Members - Shut the Light

Why risk getting trampled at your local big box store this Friday, when you can purchase gifts for all the hip-hop lovers in your life from the comfort of your own home? To build anticipation for the massive sale soon to go...Read More

Connor Evans

#6 - Connor Evans - Kanye Glasses

Whether or not you've been feeling Kanye West's recent work (or his self-aggrandizing rants), you've got to admire the man's vision and self-confidence at least a little bit. Connor Evans certainly does, and on his latest...Read More

G-Eazy

#7 - G-Eazy ft. Jay Ant - Far Alone

G-EAZY's last feature, Gotta Go, saw him reflecting with ambivalence on the whirlwind of sex, drugs and partying his life has become. On Far Alone, the lead single off his next LP, the Los Angeles-based up-and-comer harks...Read More

Swerve

#8 - Swerve & Rav.P - 'Til We Get Right

After a few days of pie, naps and relaxation, getting back on the grind can be hard for anyone. To help you keep moving when you're in a rough spot (or just aren't feeling motivated), Swerve and Rav.P have created new promo...Read More

Childish Gambino

#9 - Childish Gambino - Melrose

Not so long ago, a rapper softly singing his own hooks would have been considered ridiculous. Now, even Eminem is belting out emotional ballads. Though Stronger Than I Was made me wonder whether the pendulum had swung just a...Read More

STS

#10 - S.T.S. ft. Nikki Jean & Rog Rebel - What More Can I Say

Smooth, fun, refreshing and squeaky clean—What More Can I Say about the latest feature from S.T.S? I should call him by his full name, Sugar Tongue Slim, because his flow is something sweet. Backed by a strolling, whistling...Read More

#11 - Chase N. Cashe - I Can Do That

What are you craving, Booth readers—a fresh cut from Chase N. Cashe? I Can Do That. (If that wasn't your answer, sorry, you're gonna have to fend for yourself.) On his latest promotional single, part of a forthcoming EP...Read More

GoldLink

#12 - GoldLink x BMB - Playah

As you may have deduced from the freaky bars he spit on his last feature, On&On (Remix), GoldLink is a certified Playah. On his latest single, a collaboration with Russian beatsmith BMB, the Virginia buzzmaker emphasizes the...Read More

Astro

#13 - Astro - Yes I Know My G

If you tell Asto that he's phenomenal on the mic, don't expect a “Thank you” in return. More likely than not, the Brooklyn wunderkind's response to your compliment will be a curt, “Yes I Know My G.” Coming on the...Read More

The Procussions

#14 - The Procussions ft. Alice Amelia - LUSH

It's a LUSH world out there—and I'm not talking “covered with healthy green plants.” On the latest entry in their Pro-Exclusive Series, Los Angeles-based hip-hop crew The Procussions set out to raise awareness about the...Read More

#15 - Fredo Santana ft. Kendrick Lamar - Jealous

Guess what, readers: I just vibed out to a new single from Fredo Santana, featuring guest bars from none other than Kendrick Lamar. You Jealous? Well don't be, because the cut's now available in the Booth for your listening...Read More

Soul Khan

#16 - Soul Khan - Praying for a River

2013 was a relatively quiet year for Brown Bag All Star Soul Khan, which is exactly why the emcee has decided to drop off his first new single of the calender year before we flip the page. Though his new music has been in...Read More

HD

#17 - HD - Thur Steez

With his last feature, Know Us, HD easily accomplished his goal of making Boothgoers remember his name. He also set a lofty standard for his future work, earning an average 4.8 out of five stars from our readers. Today, he...Read More

#18 - C Plus ft. IAMSU! - In the Meantime

As I am sure you are aware, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. While turkey, football and booze are great, the holiday also signifies a well-earned break (sorry, but The DJBooth won't be posting any new song features through the end...Read More

Jamall Bufford

#19 - Jamall Bufford ft. Magestik Legend - Silencers

In the immortal words of Lil Wayne, “Real Gs move in silence like lasagna.” That's why Jamal Bufford keeps his burners equipped with Silencers at all times. But don't get it twisted; his stealthy approach to the hustle...Read More

SPZRKT

#20 - SPZRKT - Love & Pain (SPZRKT Remix)

An alt-R&B buzzmaker hailing from Warner Robins, Georgia, SPZRKT (I think that's pronounced “Spacerocket.”) introduces himself to our pages with a cover of a joint by an established DJBooth fave. Moody ballad Love & Pain,...Read More

Chevy Woods

#21 - Chevy Woods ft. Lloyd Banks - Kilmer

As a successful (if washed-up) Hollywood actor, Val Kilmer is presumably pretty loaded. Chevy Woods wants to be loaded, too. For the life of me, that's the only explanation I can think of for the title of the Taylor Gang...Read More

#22 - Skyzoo x Antman Wonder - Meeting the Presidents

When searching for a gift for someone who's got it all (and enough money to buy it all over again), your best bet is to go the personal route and make something special. A hip-hop album, for example. Knowing they probably...Read More

#23 - Art of Fresh - Amerika

Update: We have added the Illvibe-directed visuals for Art of Fresh single Amerika. Usually, when hip-hop artists spell “America” with a “k” (or three, in Ice Cube's case) some fiery political rhetoric is sure to...Read More
