Young Buck

Young Buck - When the Rain Stops

If there's one rapper who knows how to weather a storm without faltering or becoming discouraged, Young Buck is the man. Through a series of setbacks that would have driven most emcees to lay down the mic and, I dunno, become...Read More

XV

XV - T.A.L.K.

During an exclusive interview with our own DJ Z at the beginning of this year, Kansas native and Booth favorite XV commented on how he hopes to become a household name in 2010, a goal that may not be that unrealistic,...Read More

Phil Adé

Phil Adé ft. Raheem DeVaughn - Out Your Clothes [Premiere]

You might want to slip into something a little more comfortable for this one... like your birthday suit. Don't get it twisted, though; while world premiere numero dos off Phil Adé forthcoming street album finds the DMV...Read More

Bishop Lamont

Bishop Lamont ft. Xzibit, Crooked I & Jelly Roll - Blow Yo Mind

Last we heard from Bishop Lamont, the Left Coast buzzmaker had hooked up with Xzibit to take hip-hop to church on unreleased cut Hallelujah. Fast forward nearly 12 months, and Lamont's back with Blow Yo Mind, a newly-released...Read More

OnCue

OnCue - Friends

Is there anything worse than watching your so-called Friends act like they don't know you, just when you need them the most? Well, OK, it's probably not as bad as waterboarding or Shaq-Fu, but it's certainly up there. Anyway,...Read More

Aloe Blacc

Aloe Blacc - Femme Fatale

Time to separate the true hipsters from the poseurs. Can you name the group who wrote the classic cut Aloe Blacc covers on his second solo feature, and the album it originally appeared on? If you answered “The Velvet...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks ft. JD - Jazz (We Got) [Freestyle]

It’s no exaggeration to say that A Tribe Called Quest’s classic album Low End Theory is one of the biggest reasons I’ve devoted my professional life to hip-hop, so I’m instantly suspicious of anyone who dares touch...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

¡MAYDAY! - Black Shades

Summers in Miami are filled with hot parties, ridiculously beautiful women and, of course, the appropriate fashion accessories for every occasion. With their new single Black Shades, ¡MAYDAY! follow Corey Hart’s ‘80s...Read More

Smoke DZA

Smoke DZA ft. Big K.R.I.T. - The Secret

I’d make a joke about rampant marijuana consumption being the reason we haven’t heard a primary feature from DJBooth Freestyle alum Smoke DZA in six months (Remember Those Days was his last), but his new track The Secret...Read More

Dynasty

Dynasty - Pushin'

At the start of their careers, most emcees dread the seemingly inevitable swarm of comparisons to a more established artist, whether those comparisons make any sense or not (thankfully the, “Like, oh my god! Asher Roth is...Read More

810 & The Black Sunn

The Black Sunn & 810 - Mr. Good Bar (2010 Remix)

I don't know about you guys, but I've never been a big fan of Hershey's Mr. Goodbar. It's not bad or anything, but I'd choose a Milk Chocolate With Almonds over it any day of the week. Now the song Mr. Good Bar, off LL Cool...Read More

Chaundon

Chaundon ft. Carlitta Durand - Ya’ll Don’t Want It

Absent from our pages since he dropped entry #49 in our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series, Hall of Justus rapper Chaundon is back to tantalize us with a little reverse psychology – though the South Bronx native tells us "Y'all...Read More

Yonas

Yonas - New World Order

When I saw Yonas in my inbox this morning, I was afraid that this would be the day that he makes a less-than-average track, and that I’d have to deliver the sad message to Booth listeners. It’s hard enough to be...Read More

Shaun Boothe

Shaun Boothe - Let Me Go

For most rappers, flight is something to strive toward, a metaphor for success and the fast life they have long dreamed of achieving. On his latest single, Shaun Boothe turns that trope upside-down – literally. Let Me Go...Read More

Ab-Soul

Ab-Soul ft. Kendrick Lamar - Turn Me Up

Those who tuned in for Ab-Soul's last feature, the aptly-titled Drift Away, know that the Cali up-and-comer's got quite the knack for crafting chilled-out headphone music, but the man just might have outdone himself with his...Read More

Johnny Spanish

Johnny Spanish ft. Nappy Roots - Shining (Remix)

Fresh off the June 15, release of their hotly-anticipated fourth full-length, The Pursuit of Nappyness, Kentucky's own Nappy Roots are back in the Booth to introduce us to an up-and-coming emcee and fellow Bluegrass State...Read More

Phil Adé

Phil Adé ft. Skillz - OMG [Premiere]

I know what you're thinking: “DMV phenom Phil Adé, jumping on the text-lingo bandwagon? What is this world coming to?! :-( :-( :-(“ Calm down, calm down - making its world premiere in the Booth, the exclusive freestyle...Read More

Rah Digga

Rah Digga - This Ain't No Lil Kid Rap

If dope ’90s hip-hop had hands, it’d be giving a standing ovation to Rah Digga, who has been killing mics for well over a decade now. Bringing back some heavy lyrical integrity to the game, Digga blew Booth readers away...Read More

Neako

Neako - Chief Rocka 2010 [Premiere]

Believe it or not, being “Number One Chief Rocka” is less like being the Highlander than it is like winning a Miss America pageant; not only can can the title be held by more than one individual, but a new Rocka is...Read More
