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

LA & Mr. Music

LA & Mr. Music ft. Gio, S-Preme, & Nique - The Fire

Considering the stage name, I probably don't need to tell you that rapper LA and his partner, producer/hookman, Mr. Music hail from... Chicago? Huh. That's a little unintuitive. So, does that mean their first Booth feature,...Read More

Julian Young

Julian Young - Angels Calling My Name

In the history of a doomed relationship, there comes a point when one can no longer shake off the feeling that things really aren't gonna work out. Typically, that comes before the other person stops taking your calls, but,...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

Clinton Sparks

Clinton Sparks ft. Jim Jones, Game & Bun B - Favorite DJ (Green Lantern Remix)

From DJ Clue? in the 90s to DJ Khaled in the 2000s, DJs have always built homes for dope emcees to live in, and it’s nice to see that nothing’s changed in the new decade. Now in 2011, we still have DJs serving up beats...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

Jarren Benton

Jarren Benton - Get a Load of Me

Even in a rap game crowded with larger-than-life personalities, Jarren Benton's burning desire to be the center of attention sets him apart from the pack. Listeners hooked by the ATLien's outrageous antics, however, will stay...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

Blood Type

Blood Type ft. Big K.R.I.T. - I Have Dreams

If you are unfamiliar with Blood Type, allow me to introduce two young men on a mission to become the forerunners of the creative commercial hip hop movement. With the release of their new song, I Have Dreams, featuring Big...Read More

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

Jon Hope

Jon Hope ft. LJC - The Bottle

Over the past few years hip-hop has slowly moved from a music that celebrates partying to one that celebrates liver-destroying binge drinking. It’s no longer enough to simply pop bottles, you have to do Shots with LMFAO and...Read More

Phil Adé

Phil Adé - Ms. Temptation

Phil Adé just can’t stop releasing dopeness. After dropping The Letterman, hosted by Don Cannon, the question is no longer whether DJBooth Freestyle alum Phil Adé is ready for the industry, the question is just how big...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

 Gilbere Forte'

Gilbere Forte' - Born in '87
