Dan Black

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

Freeway

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

Novel

Novel & Joell Ortiz - Ghetto (Pt. 1)

Like money and orgasms, you can never have too many Joell Ortiz and Novel tracks, so when we got hit up with the dynamic duo’s latest leak Ghetto (Pt. 1) we didn’t hesitate to share it with the DJBooth.net nation. While...Read More

Dre-Ski

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

Orie

Orie - Walk Away [Premiere]

On his forthcoming street album, Booth newcomer Orie is set to give the world a little insight into What a Black Man Wants. As he reveals in this newly-leaked cut (making its world premiere here in the Booth!), however, his...Read More

Joe Budden

Joe Budden - Downfall

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. Whether or not there are as many anti-Joe Budden haters out there as the prolific New Jersey native seems to think there are, he continues to use...Read More

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

The Black Sunn

The Black Sunn - Leave Luck to Heaven [Premiere]

His dope DJBooth freestyle aside, it’s been a minute since we’ve heard new music from Baltimore fast riser Black Sunn, but that doesn’t mean the man’s been sleeping. In fact he’s been hard at work on several new...Read More

King Mez

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

Belly

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

Memphis Bleek - Still Ill

Last we heard from Memphis Bleek was way back in summer '08, but don't think for a minute that his on-the-mic skills have dulled during his time away from our front page. Now signed to his own indie label Get Low, the...Read More

Chiddy Bang

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

Styles P.

Styles P & DJ Green Lantern - Shadows

The Green Ghost is the kind of handle that just screams “comic-book hero.” Thus, it should comes as no surprise that DJ Green Lantern and LOX emcee Styles P are building anticipation for their forthcoming collaborative LP...Read More

Frantik

Frantik ft. Saheed - Light Without Darkness [Premiere]

As we all know, you can't have Light Without Darkness, happiness without sadness, good without evil...– cut free of their opposites, the words lose their meanings. On this newly-leaked album inclusion (making its world...Read More

Fly Gypsy - I Want It All (Remix)

Judging by Booth feedback on the Cash Money head honcho's past features, many are of the opinion that Birdman's records succeed in spite of, not because of the headliner's contributions. Here to put that hypothesis to the...Read More

K-Beta

K-Beta ft. Mina - Come Closer

The hallmark of a true artist isn’t talent, it’s versatility. It’s not that hard to do the same thing over and over again, like LMFAO; what’s far more difficult is to cover the entire musical landscape, like K-Beta....Read More

MGK (Machine Gun Kelly)

MGK (Machine Gun Kelly) ft. Rock City - Leave Me Alone

Though inspired by the notorious Prohibition-era gangster who helped popularize the term “G-Man,” Booth newcomer Machine Gun Kelly's stage name has less to do with literal firearms than with the Cleveland native's knack...Read More

Mike Dreams

Mike Dreams - Hip Hope Anthem (Hello World)

Cynics, now would be a good time to step away from your computer; the dose of musical positivity Mike Dreams delivers on the latest (and probably final) single/leak off his long-awaited debut album is so strong it might send...Read More

So$a Man - I Dream

Booth newcomer So$a Man is more qualified than most to talk about achieving big dreams; though he started at the very bottom, the Bahamian rapper/singer's dedication to the independent grind led him to make history by...Read More
