#1 - Se'von - Pain

Booth newcomer Se'von's MySpace bio may compare the Motown-born, Atlanta-based up-and-comer to Jon Bon Jovi and Journey, but heads shouldn't let that scare them off; rest assured, potential single Pain features neither freaky...Read More

Mike Dreams

#2 - Mike Dreams ft. Christina Fisher - Feelin' Out This World

It's been a long road, but the wait is finally over. In anticipation of tomorrow's physical release, Mike Dreams is offering his debut album, Dreamer's Poetry, for free streaming and download right here in the Booth. For...Read More

Jeff Chery

#3 - Jeff Chery - Zone Out

It's been a minute since last we featured Booth favorite Jeff Chery, and even longer since any news surfaced regarding the emcee's long-awaited, DJBooth.net-sponsored Going Against the Grain mix-album. Well, today we are...Read More

Emilio Rojas

#4 - Emilio Rojas ft. Styles P & Asher Roth - Bold & Arrogant (Remix)

Unlike Ludacris, who’s been popping out How Low remixes like Octomom pops out babies, rising rhyme star Emilio Rojas has taken a quality over quantity approach, waiting nearly four months to drop the remix to his...Read More

Chiddy Bang

#5 - Chiddy Bang ft. MGMT - The Opposite of Adults (KIDS)

Once upon a time, we were all The Opposite of Adults – Booth newcomers Chiddy Bang and Xaphoon Jones still consider themselves KIDS and, to paraphrase that classic Toys 'R' Us jingle, they don't wanna grow up anytime soon....Read More

Dan Black

#6 - Dan Black ft. Kid CuDi - Symphonies (Remix)

Already a sensation in the UK, where his debut set has been on store shelves since summer '09, Dan Black is now looking to bring his soulful take on electronic pop to listeners stateside – and who better to give him a...Read More

Grieves

#7 - Grieves - Smile for the Blade

While most rappers will swear up and down that non-constructive criticism rolls right off their backs, recent Rhymesayers signee Grieves is man enough to admit that, as irrational as it may be, the hate can sometimes sting....Read More

King Mez

#8 - King Mez ft. Tab One & Charlie Smarts (of Kooley High) - So Long [Premiere]

If it feels like just last week that up-and-coming emcee King Mez introduced himself to the Booth with reader-acclaimed cut Winter – as a matter of fact, that was just last week – but it's already come time for the North...Read More

Belly

#9 - Belly ft. Drake - Make It Go

Featured back in August, the lead single off Belly's forthcoming sophomore set saw the Juno Award-winning rapper spitting game to a Hot Girl, assisted by West Coast icon Snoop Dogg. Fast-forward three months, and the Ottawa...Read More

#10 - Youngs - Him & Her

First-time featuree Youngs may hail from Normal, Illinois, but readers can rest assured that he's far from Ordinary (915 miles, to be exact). In fact, I'd say that he's much closer to Brilliant. His mic skills are nothing to...Read More

Freeway

#11 - Freeway ft. Raekwon - One Thing

Freeway's been enjoying something of a DJBooth hot streak in January 2010, bringing us one one of our most highly acclaimed exclusive freestyles to date (Trap Door currently sits at #2 on our Freestyle Chart) as well as...Read More

SmCity

#12 - SmCity - Thin Air [Premiere]

It only takes about 10 seconds to realize the strength of a track (go ahead, test it sometime). So when I plugged in my headphones to check out SmCity’s premiere single and the bass almost knocked my eardrums out, I knew it...Read More

Concise Kilgore

#13 - Concise Kilgore - Dusted

It’s time to update your music collections ladies and gentlemen; Concise Kilgore is here with his first Booth feature, Dusted, a booming cut worthy of being on that “Don’t Sleep” playlist you share with your musically...Read More

King Mez

#14 - King Mez - Winter

During the frigid Minneapolis Winter, I'm much more apt to vibe out to bright, sunny tunes than seasonally-appropriate fare (anything Brazilian is a good bet). Fortunately, the title of North Carolina up-and-comer King Mez'...Read More

Dre-Ski

#15 - Dre-Ski - Why We Hustle

On his last non-freestyle feature, It's Getting Old, Dre-Ski sounded a little exasperated with the unceasing grind that comes with being an up-and-coming emcee. Fortunately for the Virgina Beach native and his fans, new...Read More

El Prez

#16 - El Prez ft. Donwill & Von Pea - Victory Lapse

Despite the miserable weather these past few weeks, El Prez has given us all a reason to celebrate (unless you bet a hefty sum on Peyton going the distance), and no winning moment is complete without a few Victory Lapse...Read More

Mikkey Halsted

#17 - Mikkey Halsted ft. Sly Polaroid & Cloak Hancock - I'm the Man

With the release of his DJBooth-sponsored Best You Never Heard mixtape, underground mainstay Mikkey Halsted intends to bring the uninitiated up to speed on what he's all about. Lesson one in the Windy City emcee's crash...Read More

Dominique Larue

#18 - Dominique Larue - You're a Star [Premiere]

Before you listen to up-and-coming Ohio native Dominique Larue’s newest track, You’re a Star, please dismiss this unfortunately popular equation: female + hip-hop = Nicki Minaj. You’re not going to see any pink hair or...Read More

Toki Wright

#19 - Toki Wright - Out of Nothing

Is it just me, or have there been some seriously positive, conscious vibes emanating from my city of residence lately? First Dreamer's Poetry, now Toki Wright's latest single... there's got to be something in the Minneapolis...Read More
