Wrekonize

#1 - 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

Tory Lanez

#2 - 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

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

Lil Dicky

#4 - Lil Dicky - White Dude

With the specter of Vanilla Ice still looming over the rap game, most white rappers aren't eager to make their melanin deficiency a subject of their rhymes. But you won't find any shame in Lil Dicky's game. On his latest...Read More

Bas

#5 - 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

Chance the Rapper

#6 - Chance The Rapper ft. Childish Gambino - Favorite Song

Though giving the project a spin is high on my agenda, I have to confess that I haven't had the opportunity to sit down and listen to Chance the Rapper's new mixtape all the way through, much less select a Favorite Song....Read More

Mac Miller

#7 - Mac Miller - Watching Movies

Based on the title of Mac Miller's forthcoming sophomore full-length, I assumed Watching Movies With the Sound Off was one of the Pittsburgh emcee's own hobbies. Turns out, I had it completely twisted; on freshly-minted song...Read More

Chuck Inglish

#8 - Chuck Inglish ft. Asher Roth - For The Love

If you're a lover of dope production, which you clearly are if you happen to be browsing our pages, then Chuck Inglish has long been on your radar. In an arguably short period of time, Inglish has cooked up beats for his good...Read More

Mac Miller

#9 - 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

Spose

#10 - Spose - I'm Starving

If I had a nickel for every rapper who claimed to be hungry, I would have enough to buy red toilet paper and titanium straws, Beyoncé-style. Spose, however, is way past hungry; on his latest Booth feature, he informs us,...Read More

Madcon

#11 - Madcon ft. Kelly Rowland - One Life

Way back in December 2008, Oslo rap duo Madcon introduced themselves to the Booth with Beggin, a left-of-center jam inspired by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons' '67 hit of the same name. Nearly five years later, Yosef...Read More

Ju' Malone

#12 - Julian Malone - Tokyo

Julian Malone may not Give a Eff about much in this world, but the 2008ighties emcee would be lying if he said he wasn't enjoying the trappings of success. Tokyo, the latest single off Malone's forthcoming street album, finds...Read More

Lecrae

#13 - Lecrae ft. B.o.B - Round of Applause

Previously featured as a guest on cuts by Saigon (Best Thing That I Found) and Statik Selektah (Live & Let Live), Grammy-winning Christian rap artist Lecrae steps into the solo Booth spotlight with a freshly-minted, non-album...Read More

Raz Simone

#14 - Raz Simone - These Kids Throw Rocks

Raz Simone doesn't need to spit his autobiography to demonstrate that he's been through some heavy sh*t in his day; the man's gruff, weathered flow speaks for itself. On newly-released EP standout These Kids Throw Rocks, the...Read More

Mike Stud

#15 - Mike Stud - Young King

The title of Mike Stud’s latest effort, Young King, might leave a bad taste in the mouths of Game of Thrones fans, as King Joffrey, also a young king, is one of the most deplorable characters on television. With his RELIEF...Read More

Chuuwee

#16 - Chuuwee - Basquiat & Rocko

You know, Chuuwee is a lot like a Transformer. Not because he's a robot (although he produces quality music like a machine) but because there is more to him than meets the eye. Take Basquiat & Rocko for example. Though the...Read More

Notes to Self

#17 - Notes to Self - Recoil [Crimson]

Normally, if you want some top-notch cinematic entertainment, you have to shell out about 15 bucks for a movie ticket. Today, however, Canadian quartet Notes to Self have given fans a free mini-movie along with new single...Read More

June

#18 - June - Gutta

Growing up in the Gutta of Memphis, its safe to say June was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. While he might not have been wealthy in the financial sense, he was rich in family, and had a close relationship with his...Read More

Hoodie Allen

#19 - Hoodie Allen ft. Kina Grannis - Make It Home

Last month, Fuse TV brought Empire State rapper Hoodie Allen together with singer/songwriter Kira Grannis to write a record within 24 hours and debut it in front of a live audience. The finished product, Make It Home, turned...Read More

Al-Fatir

#21 - Al-Fatir - One Man's Dream

Although Al-Fatir’s latest feature is entitled One Man’s Dream, I am sure a few Boothies out there (myself included) will identify with this paper-chasing cut. Don’t get it twisted; this isn’t your average, "If you...Read More

Run The Jewels

#22 - Run The Jewels (El-P & Killer Mike) ft. Big Boi - Banana Clipper

Maybe its Netflix’s fault for bringing Arrested Development back, but when I saw the title of the latest cut from Run The Jewels, Banana Clipper, I thought it might be named after a tool at the Bluth Banana Stand…alas, I...Read More

AirlineJay

#23 - AirlineJay - No Option

Is the current selection of Booth features on our homepage not really doing it for you today? Well, it looks like you have left us No Option, but to break out our secret weapon; say hello to my lil’ friend, AirlineJay. From...Read More
