The Canz - 2010 Hot Steppa

Way back in 1994, Jamaican dancehall veteran Ini Kamoze earned his one and, to date, only Billboard #1 hit with Here Comes the Hotsteppa, a Salaam Remi-produced single off his '95 full-length of the same name. With more...Read More

KM

Tha Future - Star

If you don't want to burn out your retinas, now would be a good time to grab some shades – or a welder's mask. As the up-and-coming emcee explains on new mixtape leak (and Booth debut) Star, Tha Future plans on shining so...Read More

Joe Budden

Joe Budden - R.I.P.

Joe Budden’s never been a pacifist, but even for him he’s been on a particular rampage lately. The latest addition to Budden's enormous “tracks where rappers get served hard” catalog is R.I.P., a net-only banger that...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

Rhymefest

Rhymefest ft. Little Brother - How High

Today, as we stare down a new offering from Chicago representer Rhymefest, we find ourselves in a classic good news, bad news situation. The bad news? Creative differences caused Fest to split with J Records, pushing back the...Read More

Freeway

Freeway - She Makes Me Feel Alright

On his last feature, unreleased cut Love Is a Battlefield, Freeway aired his thoughts on everything from inner-city violence to the bad blood between Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel but, besides mentioning that he'd like to be...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks ft. Tina Quallo - One Wish [Exclusive]

In light of the unfathomable pain that has recently been afflicted upon those in Haiti, many are sympathetic, compelled to feel pity for the victims of the disaster. However, where sympathy fails to help us to fully...Read More

Beyond Belief

Beyond Belief ft. Kwame & Amille Harris - 40 Seconds [Exclusive]

On January 12, 2010, at 4:53 pm local time, the earth began to shake underneath the people of Haiti, and by the time the earth had calmed, less than a minute later, their lives lay in ruins. In the wake of such overwhelming...Read More

Joell Ortiz

Joell Ortiz & Novel - Like I Know

Barack and Michelle, Jordan and Pippen, Snoop Dogg and marijuana, all duos that not only made each other better but changed their respective games. To that list we can now safely add Brooklyn heavyweight Joell Ortiz and the...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

Saheed

Saheed - How Can I Explain

No matter how hard you try to keep it positive, there are always those days (or weeks, or months...) when everything's a drag and it feels like your life's on the slow train to nowhere; few, however, can spin their blues into...Read More

Feroz

Feroz ft. Cory Gunz - Gunz N Rozes

First things first: if you, like me, could go the rest of your life without hearing another screech from Axl Rose, feel free to breathe a sigh of relief; Gunz & Rozes, the inaugural leak from East Coast emcee Feroz's...Read More

Basic Vocab

Basic Vocab - Prescription

Ever since the 1914 passage of the Harrison Narcotics Tax Act, it's been illegal for physicians to prescribe narcotics for the purpose of maintaining a patient's addiction. Fortunately, music is not a controlled substance,...Read More

Statik Selektah

Statik Selektah ft. Bun B, Wale & Colin Munroe - So Close, So Far

For me, nightmares are nowhere near as upsetting as the really good dreams – you know, the ones where you win the lottery or Beyoncé asks you to Sadie Hawkins, and your first thought upon waking is, “Oh, right, my life...Read More

Jay Beretta

Jay Beretta ft. Masspike Miles - The Set Up

When it comes to music, I like my tracks like most women like their intimate encounters: I don’t want a two minute song, and if I do come across one, it better be pretty damn good. With that in mind, Jay Beretta’s new...Read More

K-Beta

K-Beta - Black Business

Like the Madden curse, the “most underrated rapper” tag has been known to cripple the careers of up-and-coming emcees, so I’m going to avoid burdening K-Beta with the weighty label. Instead, let’s just say that if...Read More

TreaZon

TreaZon - Midnight Train

When Nathan S. first slid TreaZon’s new leak my way he said it was “something different,” and after one listen that description proved to be pretty damn accurate (go figure). While we’ve seen TreaZon develop as an...Read More

The Freshmen

The Freshmen ft. Marty James - Contact

As Michael “Mike Dreams” Hannah recently observed over on RefinedHype.com, the music game is looking more like high school with every passing day. Thus, it was only a matter of time before a group calling themselves The...Read More
