Sadistik

Sadistik ft. Sticky Fingaz & Tech N9ne - Death Warrant

I have to admit, I was a little nervous to listen to the first feature from Sadistik—Booth-exclusive world premiere or no. If the Seattle underground mainstay (as his stage name suggests) gets his kicks by inflicting pain,...Read More

Rich Quick

Rich Quick & Archie Bang - #Breakfast

Didn't have time to grab a bite to eat this morning? Not to worry; East Coast rhymesayers Rich Quick and Archie Bang have prepared a little #Breakfast for all their fans in The DJBooth. An exclusive world premiere, this joint...Read More

Witt Lowry

Witty ft. Trippz Michaud - Leave

At the top of the month, we heard Connecticut buzzmaker Witty pour his soul out to an ex on the reader-acclaimed Like I Do. A few weeks on, the pain of heartbreak hasn't exactly faded, but it seems to have been overshadowed...Read More

Yonas

Yonas - Love Me Again

Since Yonas's last feature, The Transition (Deluxe Edition) single Leaving You, found the Bronx representative cutting loose a woman he'd been seeing, I figured new promo single Love Me Again would feature him begging her to...Read More

Your Old Droog

Your Old Droog - You Know What Time It Is

Over the last week, the hip-hop internet has been engulfed in trying to figure out if Your Old Droog is actually an alter-ego of Nas. Spoiler alert, he's not Nas. He's just not. NOT. Now that the Nas thing is out of the way -...Read More

Busdriver

Busdriver ft. Aesop Rock & Danny Brown - Ego Death

This one is not for the faint of heart. S**t, even the strong of heart might feel a little woozy after just one listen to Busdriver's solo Booth debut, Ego Death. Bus's frenetic, jarring flow gets the track started off on a...Read More

G-Eazy

G-Eazy - Almost Famous

The title of G-Eazy's latest single explains why I’m leaving home to become a stewardess. Sorry; when I see a record titled Almost Famous, I can’t help but think about the classic flick by Cameron Crowe. In reality this...Read More

G-Eazy

G-Eazy - The Day It All Changed

Not too long ago, G-Eazy was just another up-and-comer struggling to earn his keep in the rap game. Now, he's poised to turn all his dreams into reality. On an outtake from his next independent album, the Oakland emcee and...Read More

Toki Wright

Toki Wright - Apex

The lead single off Toki Wright's forthcoming debut set with Big Cats found the Rhymesayers signee weighing the authority of medical science against the years of tradition supporting natural remedies like Echinacea. On the...Read More

Mike Stud

Mike Stud - Closer

Mike Stud has a lot on his plate right about now. Not only is the Providence, Rhode Island repper getting ready to head out on a 33-city national tour (For more on that, click here.), but he's also building up to the release...Read More

Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne ft. Mackenzie O'Gunn - Fear

Fresh off his reader-acclaimed guest contribution to Death Warrant, the debut DJBooth feature from Seattle emcee Sadistik, Tech N9ne has unleashed a brand new single of his own. On Fear, the Strange Music capo brings his...Read More

Young Scolla

Scolla - Foxy Brown

Before there was Foxy Brown the femcee, there was Foxy Brown the movie, a Blaxploitation classic starring Pam Grier. On his latest Booth feature, Scolla pays tribute to the actress and her most famous character, whom a...Read More

Black Dave

Black Dave - East in the House

In the wise words of Jeru the Damaja, “When the East Is in the House you should come equipped.” Black Dave has clearly taken the hip-hop vet's message to heart; on his latest single, the Bronx native steps up to the mic...Read More

Case Arnold

Case Arnold ft. Rikki Blu - Thermia

Last week, Clarksville, Tennesse's Case Arnold busted into The DJBooth Kool-Aid Man style to bring us his debut feature. Readers were clearly digging his grand entrance, as Break Through received an impressive 3.8-star...Read More
15
KIDD

KIDD ft. Derek Luh - Insomnia Vacation

Like most ambitious rhymesayers on the come-up, KIDD has lost countless hours of shut-eye to his craft. I'm not sure whether the title “Insomnia Vacation” means that the Chi-Town emcee is taking some time off to catch...Read More

Marc E. Bassy

Marc E. Bassy - Cigarettes

Love is like Cigarettes; sure, it's relatively unlikely to give you lung cancer, but it's addictive as hell and the effects of its long-term abuse can be downright excruciating. Marc. E Bassy knows exactly what I'm talking...Read More

Hoodie Allen

Hoodie Allen - Nolan Ryan

Judging by the reviews garnered by Hoodie Allen's previous Booth features, our readers have a healthy respect for the Empire State buzzmaker, but there are those elsewhere in the hip-hop blogosphere (cough, haters) who have...Read More

SANGO

Sango x Waldo ft. SPZRKT - Crossroads

Last we heard from Sango, the buzzmaking beatsmith had joined forces with DMV up-and-comer GoldLink to bring us April's Wassup, a quirky promo cut that won high praise from our readers. Two monthhs and change later, the...Read More

Locksmith

Locksmith - Free

F**kin' Idols, the last featured single off Locksmith's latest street release, was an underground banger with a grimy, hard-hitting vibe. On freshly-minted follow-up Free, the Cali-repping reader fave dials down the intensity...Read More

Black EL

Black EL - Olde English 800

As someone who's drained a couple (...dozen) 40-ounces in his day, I was expecting Black EL's latest promo single to be similar to its namesake: fizzy, intoxicating and fun while it lasts, but apt to leave you with a...Read More

Johnny Polygon

Johnny Polygon - You're Never too Old to Die Young

Though there are people who manage to hang onto life for a hundred years or more, precious few leave this world without some unfinished business. As Johnny Polygon reminds us on his latest promo single, You're Never Too Old...Read More

Little Simz

Little Simz - Devour

Little Simz is one of the hungriest young rhymesayers in the game. If past Booth features like Deranged and Mandarin Oranges haven't made that abundantly clear, just listen to the UK buzzmaker Devour the beat (and her...Read More

Dilated Peoples

Dilated Peoples ft. DJ Premier - Good as Gone

Later this summer, West Coast underground mainstays Dilated Peoples are set to make their Rhymesayers debut by unleashing their first studio album since 2006's 20/20. Today, we get our first taste of the forthcoming set in...Read More
