June 17, 2013 Chart Recap*Last week’s front-runners, Tory Lanez’ “Fourteen & 40’s” and Wrekonize‘s “Freak,” drop to (respectively) sixth and 14th. Mac Miller‘s “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes,” a new release, and …...Read More


Mac Miller

#1 - Mac Miller ft. Jay Electronica - Suplexes Inside of Complexes & Duplexes

It takes one hell of a lyricist to coax Jay Electronica out of hiding for a guest verse. As such, Mac Miller's latest single should be a wake-up call to any heads who still aren't taking the indie phenom's skills seriously....Read More

Tory Lanez

#2 - Tory Lanez - Up (Fell in Love)

With his last two features garnering an almost five star average rating, Tory Lanez has Boothies falling head over heels in love with his unique, diverse style; fitting the title of his latest effort is Up (Fell In Love). On...Read More

Joey BadA$$

#3 - Joey Bada$$ - Word Is Bond

Joey BadA$$' dense, allusive lyricism may require the occasional RapGenius visit to untangle, but he's never simply playing with words. On the first single off his next street release, the Brooklyn buzzmaker emphasizes his...Read More

Nyzzy Nyce

#4 - Nyzzy Nyce - I Just Rather

They say you only get one shot at a first impression. For DJBooth newcomer Nyzzy Nyce, a true first impression equals a bazooka filled with dynamite aimed at a gas station made of firewood. Excuse my excessive description,...Read More

Joey BadA$$

#5 - Joey Bada$$ - 95 Til Infinity

They say every cloud has a silver lining, and Joey Bada$$ fans need to know this now more than ever. While they might be upset that the Pro.Era emcee’s forthcoming project, the Summer Knights LP, was pushed back a few...Read More

Tory Lanez

#6 - Tory Lanez - Fourteen & 40's

When I was 14, I was busy playing Grand Theft Auto and Halo and watching Spongebob. Tory Lanez may have enjoyed those activities as well, but his 14th year holds a deeper significance: that's when he first picked up the mic....Read More

Wu Tang Clan

#7 - Wu Tang Clan - Family Reunion

As much as I enjoy seeing my distant kin, I've got to keep it one-hundred: given the choice, I'd most likely dip out on my own relatives to attend the Wu-Tang Family Reunion. And can you blame me? In addition to freer-flowing...Read More

Emilio Rojas

#8 - Emilio Rojas - Good Morning

With Emilio Rojas' latest full-length less than a week away from release, lead single Lean on 'Em remains fans' only foretaste of the highly-anticipated set. (Tomorrow Never Comes is a bonus track, so it doesn't really...Read More

Caligula

#9 - Caligula ft. Wiz Khalifa - Fighter Jet

If I had a J for every guest appearance from Wiz Khalifa in the past two weeks, I would have enough foliage to get Willie Nelson higher than a Fighter Jet. After appearing on cuts from Action Bronson, Kelly Rowland, Ty Dolla...Read More

D-Pryde

#10 - D-Pryde - Lifted

Absent from our pages since dropping off Highway back in 2011, T-Dot buzzmaker D-Pryde makes his triumphant return to The DJBooth with a freshly-minted single off his next EP. On this breezy summer jam, Chris “Flict”...Read More

K. Sparks

#11 - K. Sparks ft. Angelous - HTNC (Humble's The New Cocky)

As you must already know, June is a huge month for new album releases. J. Cole, Kanye and Mac Miller are all set to drop their latest LPs on 6/18, and a week later Wale’s The Gifted hits literal and digital shelves. In an...Read More

Kings Dead

#12 - Kings Dead - Not a Worry

With the aggressive, ambitious bars and tension-fraught beats Kings Dead showcased on previous singles '94 and Over Dinner, listeners could be forgiven for assuming the Bostonian rapper/producer duo were a little intense, if...Read More

Mac Miller

#13 - Mac Miller - Goosebumpz

Upon reading the title of Mac Miller's latest feature, the first thought that entered my mind was of R.L. Stine's bestselling book series. I'm a late-'80s baby; what can I say? As it turns out, I was way off the mark. The...Read More

Wrekonize

#14 - Wrekonize ft. Tech N9ne - Freak

On the lead single off his forthcoming solo debut, ¡MAYDAY! frontman Wrekonize took the opportunity to get a little more personal than he has in his collaborative work, rhyming about the Anxiety Attacks and self-doubt he's...Read More

Harry Fraud

#15 - Harry Fraud x Smoke DZA - Win

While Scion has spent a better part of the last decade making a name for itself in the auto consumer market, the brand has devoted nearly the same amount of time and energy developing a presence throughout various music, film...Read More

Bas

#16 - Bas ft. J.Cole & KQuick - Lit

With the temperature rising and school sessions ending, many are already in a summer state of mind even though the official first day of the new season isn't until June 21. Similarly, J.Cole’s label imprint Dreamville has...Read More

Quills

#17 - Quills - Dreamcatcher

Loyal Booth readers are undoubtedly familiar with Strange Music, Tech N9ne’s long running, highly-successful indie label, who has long been bringing us dope music. I suspect it won't be long until Booth newcomer Quills too...Read More

Soulslicers

#18 - Soulslicers ft. EMS - Past Doubt

Met with universal praise when it premiered on our pages earlier this month, the title track off the Soulslicers' latest mixtape should have been enough to convince you the DJBooth-hosted project was worth checking out. If...Read More

Charmingly Ghetto

#19 - Charmingly Ghetto ft. Katrina Renee - Got to Get Away

Despite what his irreverent stage name may suggest, Charmingly Ghetto isn't so attached to the 'hood that he refuses to leave. On the contrary, he knows that pursuing one's dreams often means leaving familiar surroundings far...Read More

Jarren Benton

#20 - Jarren Benton - Life in the Jungle

If the song releases leading up to Jarren Benton's freshman full-length have taught us anything, it's that the ATL emcee can be a scary motherf**ker. But he wasn't born the ruthless individual he is today; he had to become...Read More

Next Up


Spose

#21 - Spose - All Rs

I hope y'all are ready for a little audience participation, because Spose's latest video isn't the kind you simply sit back and watch. In keeping with the alliterative theme of single All Rs, the rhymesayer has come together...Read More

Freddie Gibbs

#22 - Freddie Gibbs - Freddie Soprano

Yesterday, I remarked on how strange it was for Freddie Gibbs to release a mixtape single titled One Eighty Seven in which absolutely no homicides are described. Now it all makes sense: the Gary, Indiana repper was saving up...Read More

Lorenzo Asher

#23 - Lorenzo Asher ft. Royce Da 5'9 - Net Worth

Lorenzo Asher's Booth features to date have seen the Cleveland-by-way-of-Philly spitter grappling with heavy subject matter: Begin found him expressing uncertainty over his future, and The Color of Ignorance dealt with the...Read More
