Fuze The Mc

Fuze The Mc ft. Talibah - Lullaby

Freddie Gibbs

Freddie Gibbs ft. Chuck Inglish, Chip tha Ripper, Bun B & Dan Auerbach - Oil Money

D.C. Don Juan

D.C. Don Juan - Hands Up

Don't let the stage name fool you: D.C. Don Juan may have borrowed his moniker from literature's most legendary womanizer, but those who assume the Booth newcomer's a lover rather than a fighter may be surprised by the...Read More

Pharoahe Monch

Pharoahe Monch ft. Mela Machinko - Shine

Any day with new Pharoahe Monch is a good day, and in the immortal words of Ice Cube, today is a good day - plus I didn’t have to use my AK. Other than the occasional guest verse (The Matrix, Hurt U), it’s been nearly...Read More
