Logic

#1 - Logic ft. Camille Gray - Mind Of Logic

Although he’s built a loyal and growing fan base it’s safe to say that most citizens of DJBooth Nation are unfamiliar with DMV native Logic; you know, considering this is the first feature for the DMV native. Well, what...Read More

Jean Grae

#2 - Jean Grae - Casebasket

For free 99 Jean will beat 99 acts down? Sounds like a deal, huh? Jean Grae is one of the best lyricists of our time. No, not just one of the best female lyricists, one of the best lyricists period, regardless of gender....Read More

Radical Something

#3 - Radical Something ft. Kinetics - Be Easy

On Radical Something's Booth debut, the Cali crew propose something radical—if the nine-to-five grind has you feeling stressed, why not step away from the laptop, power down your mobile phone, and go somewhere you...Read More

Warm Brew

#4 - Warm Brew - Nothin From Nothin

Despite their unappetizing stage name, the Warm Brew didn't fail to leave Booth readers refreshed when they introduced themselves with early-April's coffee-shop-funky Willing to Ride. Today, the Los Angeles crew return to...Read More

Jon Connor

#5 - Jon Connor - Money Comes Fast

There's nothing fast or easy about the grind to make a living in the rap game but, as the Morton Salt girl could tell you, “When it rains, it pours.” Having put in overtime to plant the seeds for future success, Michigan...Read More

Rapsody

#6 - Rapsody ft. King Mez & Laws - Top Five

Rapsody... Top Five, dead or alive? It might seem a little early to make that call, but think about it this way: if the North Carolina femcee doesn't tell us so now, how will she be able to say “I told you so!” if/when...Read More

King Mez

#7 - King Mez ft. Skyzoo - The Rebirth

Hip-hop may not recognize royal bloodlines, but anyone who's heard King Mez rock the mic can tell you that the North Carolina native was born for this sh*t. Today, the Booth fave lays his claim to the throne with album leak...Read More

Isaac Castor

#8 - Gameboi ft. Rapper Big Pooh - Act Right

Judging strictly from the lyrics of Act Right, one might draw several conclusions about Michigan emcee and DJBooth newcomer Gameboi: he’s intellectual; he’s charismatic; he’s informed. What might have been a tad harder...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

#9 - ¡MAYDAY! ft. Del The Funky Homosapien - The Ride

If you're defined by the company you keep, then ¡MAYDAY! are well on their way to underground legendhood—simply put, the Panhandle State crew have been rubbing shoulders with giants. Currently accompanying label boss Tech...Read More

Roger

#10 - Mista Mista ft. D. Julien & Neil Letendre - Wake Up

Like most rappers who aren't in the game out of sheer masochism, Mista Mista is sustained in his arduous grind by visions of a bright future—and, being only human, he occasionally experiences moments of frustration and...Read More

SBTRKT

#11 - SBTRKT ft. Yukimi Nagano (of Little Dragon) & Drake - Wildfire (Remix)

South London producer SBTRKT's latest single, Wildifre, gets a major injection of star power on this newly-released remix of the cut. Over the producer's mechanical percussion and wobbling synths, original guest Yukimi Nagano...Read More

Honors English

#12 - Honors English ft. Freeway Ricky Ross & The Mad Violinist - Short Story Long

Where most would try to make a long story short, up-and-coming emcee Honors English prefers to make a Short Story Long--fortunately, he's got the narrative chops to have listeners hanging on his every word. Over a fittingly...Read More

Ka$ual

#13 - Ka$ual ft. Jon Bellion - I Don't Take L's

I know what y'all are thinking: “What could Ka$ual possibly have against Chicago's rapid transit system?“ Frankly, I'm not sure—I certainly never had any complaints during my visits to the Windy City. Oh, when the Booth...Read More

Fortilive

#14 - Fortilive - On Site

The 249th entry in our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series comes courtesy of Fortilive, the Hawaiian trio who hooked up with the Booth to drop debut album I vs. I. On their brand new, exclusive On Site freestyle, Slo-Mo and Mushmouf...Read More

Treehouse

#15 - Treehouse - Ana

If you're angling to spark up a summer romance, you'd better get a move on. Well, technically summer hasn't even begun yet (the solstice is on the 21st) but, in the interest of packing in as many good memories as possible...Read More

Naturel

#16 - Naturel - Helium

Just how fly is Naturel, the Northeastern up-and-comer previously heard on last year's Say? Hmmm, what can I compare him to without sounding totally cliché... an airplane? A bird? A winged insect of the cyclorrhapha order?...Read More

Co$$ (aka Ca$hus King)

#17 - Co$$ ft. Sene & Aloe Blacc - Only When I Dream

Self-deception gets a bad rap but, the way I see it it, a little delusion can be a powerful motivator—how many legitimately dope rappers would never have picked up the mic if it weren't for their naive fantasies of fame,...Read More

Novel

#18 - Novel - Get You High

Let’s start this post with a riddle: what’s the best time to listen to new music from Novel? Trick question, there’s never a bad time to listen to new Novel. With his DJBooth-approved Vanilla Sky still large in the...Read More

Omar Linx

#19 - Omar Linx ft. Royce Da 5'9 & Joell Ortiz - See You In Hell

If it's true that birds of a feather flock together, then you can judge Omar Linx as a dope emcee simply based on the collaborators the T-dot repper's enlisted for his Booth debut. If you won't take it on faith, however, you...Read More
