Common

#1 - Common ft. Nas - Ghetto Dreams

Nas may be one of the greatest spitters ever to pick up a mic, but patience evidently isn't his strong suit. Friday night, Twitter followers got to witness the Queensbridge vet pestering Chitown vet Common to hurry up and...Read More

Trae The Truth

#2 - Trae The Truth ft. Lupe Fiasco, Big Boi, Wale, Wiz Khalifa & MDMA - I’m On

As the self-proclaimed Street King, Trae the Truth must roll with an appropriately dope retinue, right? Indubitably; and if you don't believe me, a listen to the his latest buzz record should suffice to set you straight. I'm...Read More

Drake

#3 - Drake - Marvin’s Room

Despite being a one-off release unattached to any project, unreleased joint Dreams Money Can Buy made an explosive impact when Drake dropped it back in late May. Thus, it should surprise absolutely no one that the first leak...Read More

Game

#4 - Game ft. Chris Brown - Pot Of Gold

After a downright epic wait, it's looking like Game fans will finally get their hands on a new album before the summer's out. While the R.E.D. Album may be back on track for release, those two-plus years of delays and label...Read More

Tyrese

#5 - Tyrese ft. R. Kelly & Tyga - I Gotta Chick That Love Me

Way back in February of '08, Tyrese stepped into the Booth with Coming to See You--a single intended to finally get the R&B vet's fourth LP off the back burner and on track for release. Three years, four months and 825 days...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#6 - Wiz Khalifa - No Sleep

From the constant, weed and liquor-fueled revelry described throughout Wiz Khalifa's musical work, you might be led to believe that the Steel City phenom had mastered the art of consequence-free hedonism. Not so—on new...Read More

Drake

#7 - Drake - Trust Issues

We interrupt your regularly-scheduled programming for a breaking story: Young Money megastar Drake has Trust Issues when it comes to women. Also, the sky is blue, water is wet and the Pope is Catholic. OK, so Drizzy's...Read More

Lil Wayne

#8 - Lil Wayne - How to Love

Prepare for the internet to explode in 5, 4, 3….. When Lil Wayne emerged from Rikers we didn’t know how the incarceration would affect his music, but after first single, Six Foot Seven Foot, it seemed like the answer was...Read More

Lloyd

#9 - Lloyd - Naked

I know what you're thinking: “An R&B record titled Naked? This could only be about one thing.” Not so fast—in actuality, Lloyd's new single finds him espousing a philosophy of militant nudism, calling for listeners to...Read More

Beyoncé

#10 - Beyoncé ft. Andre 3000 & Kanye West - Party (Remix)

It wouldn't quite be accurate to claim that Beyoncé can do no wrong in the Booth lately—the reader response to Run the World (Girls) says otherwise—but the waves of 4/5-star reviews that greeted both pretend second...Read More

Big Sean

#11 - Big Sean ft. Kanye West & Roscoe Dash - Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay

Now that his debut set's headed towards stores shelves, Motown heavyweight Big Sean's got a little more time to kick back with his girl. On this standout cut, he does just that--but not before setting the proper mood with a...Read More

Cory Gunz

#12 - Cory Gunz - Outta My Mind

From Frodo's ring, to the dark side of the force, to the eldritch secrets of the Necronomicon, cosmic power has a nasty track record of driving its recipients to madness and self-destruction. Thus, it should come as no...Read More

J. Cole

#13 - J. Cole - Work Out

Kanye's The New Workout Plan was a dope song to be sure, but you know what would be really dope? If someone came along and flipped it so that, instead of being about exercise, it was about casual sex. What's that? That's what...Read More

Sean Paul

#14 - Sean Paul ft. Alexis Jordan - Got 2 Luv U

As soon as I saw Sean Paul’s name my immediate reaction was “am I crazy or has it been years since we’ve heard from Sean?”. Well, it turns out I was right (although also maybe crazy); the last solo feature from the...Read More

DJ Khaled

#15 - DJ Khaled ft. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne - I'm on One

We the Best head honcho DJ Khaled is following up the boisterous, street-certified Welcome to My Hood (and its successful remix) with something a little more club-focused. I'm on One finds Young Money megastar Drake joining...Read More

Bad Meets Evil

#16 - Bad Meets Evil ft. Bruno Mars - Lighters

No, you're not hallucinating; Bad Meets Evil, the lyrically-bruising duo made up of Motown heavyweights Royce Da 5'9" and Eminem, hooks up with R&B-pop heartthrob Bruno Mars on new EP single Lighters. And, though the...Read More

Far East Movement

#17 - Far East Movement - So What?

Much like the ever-popular “Why?,” the question “So What?” has the power of derailing any conversation into a pointless, potentially infinite series of queries (and, if you press the issue for too long, to cause...Read More

DJ Khaled

#18 - DJ Khaled ft. Mary J. Blige, Jadakiss & Fabolous - It Aint Over Til Its Over

Best known as a creator (and shouter-over) of raucous, star-studded street bangers, DJ Khaled recently branched out with I'm on One--a joint with a relatively understated vibe and, shockingly, minimal yelling. Turns out that...Read More

Rihanna

#19 - Rihanna - California King Bed (Goon Rock Remix)

Released in May as single numero quatre off the Bajan songstress' Loud LP, California King Bed was Rihanna's shot at a power ballad—screaming guitar solo and all. So, why flip the record into a more traditional synth-pop...Read More
