¡MAYDAY!

¡MAYDAY! - Death March

I think a new genre of music is being born up under our noses and we just haven't given it the proper fitting. Bands dressed as rappers with instruments are taking over everything we ever knew and ¡MAYDAY! is one of the top...Read More

Marion Write ft. Skyzoo - Slow Down

It's indisputable. Marion Write's been killing it in the lead-up to his new, Booth-hosted full-length. As a matter of fact, he's been doing it so big that, on the second official single off the project, the Vegas rhymesayer...Read More

John Anthony

John Anthony - Drugs

Winners don't do Drugs--or do they? John Anthony's love for narcotics certainly hasn't hurt his mic-rocking abilities, if the Southern emcee's latest single and first Booth feature is any indication. Here, Russ' bluesy,...Read More
