1982

1982 ft. Big K.R.I.T. - Lights Down

There’s got to be a story here, but I guess we’ll just have to wait for 1982’s Behind the Music special to hear it. Frankly, I don’t know why the original version of Statik Selektah and Termanology’s single featured...Read More

Angel Haze

Angel Haze - Werkin' Girls

It’s about time. I’ve been waiting for years for hip-hop to finally pay tribute to classic ‘80s movie Working Girl. God, Melanie Griffith is so hilarious in that. Wait, what’s that? Angel Haze’s new track has...Read More

Rob Regal

Lyriciss - My Life

They say the best music comes when the artist is writing about what they know best. Considering I can’t imagine a topic Lyriciss is better versed in than his own existence, video single My Life is pretty much guaranteed to...Read More

Proph

Proph ft. Gerald Walker - Higher

When most rappers make a song called Higher they’ve got some of that sticky green on their minds (and in their lungs), but Proph’s focused on an even worthier goal; love. Making his DJBooth debut with the world premiere...Read More

AWAR ft. Nottz, MURS & P Jericho - Until The End

If you know anything about underground hip-hop, you know that when you see a line-up featuring AWAR, Nottz, MURS and P Jericho, you're in for some dopeness. And if you don’t know anything about underground hip-hop, well...Read More
