Jeff Chery

Jeff Chery - Poser

In the music game, artists are often so eager to get a leg up that they don't stop to think about precisely who they're dealing with. Not Jeff Chery; sharper than your average emcee, the freestyle series alum and reader fave...Read More

Talib Kweli

Talib Kweli - I'm on One

“If skills sold, truth be told, I’d probably be, lyrically, Talib Kweli…,” stated the God MC, Jay-Z, back in 2003. But for all their difference, Jay and Kweli have both achieved one of the hardest feats in rap –...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

¡MAYDAY! ft. Ace Hood - Highs & Lows

It goes without saying that life has its ups, and its downs – and, in order to stay sane and productive, we each have to find and perfect our own methods of turning the latter into the former. For Miami crew ¡MAYDAY!,...Read More

J NICS

J NiCS - Slumber

If you're anything like me (and I know y'all aspire to be just like me), then Slumber is something that you didn't get nearly enough of anoche. While a couple more hours of shut-eye may not be an option, those currently...Read More

Bossman

Bossman - Illuminati

To keep it one-hundred, I'm not a big believer in conspiracy theories; I think they're just stories people tell to distract themselves from the terrifying possibility that nobody's behind the wheel. And no, I'm not just...Read More

Freeway

Freeway - Hustle Baby

After belching away the last bubbles of NYE champagne and sweeping up pieces of shot glasses, the next thing on the "hate to do" list is to see what kind of trash piled up in my inbox. Luckily, something like an anthem from...Read More

Dre Biggity

Dre Biggity - Made

Talk about planning ahead: though 2011 has only just begun, Dre Biggity's already got five mixtapes slated to drop throughout the year – six if you count 2K11 Demo Disc, a prelude featuring choice cuts off each of the...Read More

Rittz

Rittz ft. Yelawolf & BIG K.R.I.T. - Full of Sh*t

Follow along with me here: If you're Full of Sh*t and you're honest enough to admit it, doesn't that mean you're not full of sh*t? But then you would be full of sh*t, because you'd be claiming to be full of sh*t when you're...Read More

Skewby

Skewby - Everyday

Fantasy football leagues are almost over and out this year, so I’m trying to find some new ways to invest my oh-so-talented hypothetical wisdom (here I come, fantasy golf!). But if there was a rap fantasy league, and there...Read More

Joell Ortiz

Joell Ortiz ft. Anna Yvette - So Hard

The YAOWA army is in full effect, gearing up troops to take over the world. The opponent is disbelievers and the ammo is the constant jams that 5 Star General Joell Ortiz keeps pumping out, and we here at DJBooth are...Read More

Dre-Ski

Dre-Ski - Go On & Try

A laissez-faire approach to relationships may make for good times in the short term, but behind every player and “playette” lie numerous burned bridges and broken hearts. Newly-leaked mixtape cut Go On & Try (making its...Read More

Actual Proof

Actual Proof ft. Rapsody - Breathe

Of all the regions that have yet to make a name for themselves as hip-hop hot spots, the Carolinas are looking like the next to blow. Oh, you want actual proof to back up that assertion? Then I present you with... Actual...Read More

Fashawn

Fashawn - Manny Pacquiao

Don't let the title of Fashawn's ongoing series fool you; the Cali native's style of moral education is a little different from what those raised in the church may remember from their Sunday School days. For example, all that...Read More

Mike Jaggerr

Mike Jaggerr ft. Big K.R.I.T. - Cruise Control

Remember how awful Speed 2: Cruise Control was? How Keanu Reeves' character was carelessly written out of the plot, which didn't make all that much sense to begin with? Well, that has absolutely nothing to do with the Cruise...Read More

J.Y.

J.Y. ft. Young Scolla & Nipsey Hussle - We All Good

If you're anything like me, you've been lying awake nights, wondering, “Is J.Y. doing all right? Sure, he's been making some great music, but is the grind getting to him?” OK, now that I've typed that all out, that seems...Read More

Money Making Jam Boys

Money Making Jam Boys - Tear It Down

If you turn on your radio to your local hip-hop station, more likely than not you’ll hear something more like bubble gum pouring through your speakers. Now there’s nothing wrong with the occasional catchy tune, but...Read More

Jarren Benton

Jarren Benton - Ima Murder

Jarren Benton's last mixtape leak, hazy punchline-fest A Spacesuit & Parachute, earned high praise from listeners starving for wit and humor in an all-too-serious game. Like that of Heath Ledger's Joker, however, the ATL...Read More

 Gilbere Forte'

Gilbere Forte' - Please Don't Worry

The only thing you can expect from Gilbere Forte' is the unexpected, and the latest change of pace from the DJBooth Freestyle Alum is Please Don’t Worry. In contrast to the indie oriented 1st Floor, and his smoothed out...Read More

Phil Adé

Phil Adé - Break Me Off

So you didn’t feel what Nathan was saying last year when he gave Phil Adé’s The Letterman a solid four Booth spins (something that is always vied for in the music community)? For those who might have been too timid to...Read More
