Pitbull

#1 - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown - International Love

Though Pitbull calls himself “Mr. 305” out of loyalty to the Magic City, the moniker “Mr. Worldwide” would be equally apt—over the course of his career, the Latin-rap heavyweight's attracted a truly global...Read More

DJ Khaled

#2 - DJ Khaled ft. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne - I'm on One

We the Best head honcho DJ Khaled is following up the boisterous, street-certified Welcome to My Hood (and its successful remix) with something a little more club-focused. I'm on One finds Young Money megastar Drake joining...Read More

Drake

#3 - Drake - Dreams Money Can Buy

If DJBooth.net had printing presses, somebody would be running down the hall right now screaming to stop them. What's the occasion? Only a new, apropos-of-nothing-in-particular release from one of the heaviest heavyweights in...Read More

J. Cole

#4 - J. Cole - Return of Simba

I could go really deep into how this song is sweating Big J, but I'm probably just jaded (shrug). However, with that said, new promo leak Return of Simba is a necessary move on J. Cole's major chessboard; it begins to answer...Read More

T-Pain

#5 - T-Pain ft. Chris Brown - Best Love Song

Valentine's Day may be over, but T-Pain's still spreading love the best way he can: through the same whimsical AutoTune stylings that have become his signature. Thankfully, the Nappy Boy CEO took a break from buying...Read More

I.Y.A.Z

#6 - Iyaz ft. Travie McCoy - Pretty Girls

Life is tough for the chronically indecisive; whether you're vacillating between several equally appealing items on a lunch menu or weighing the relative pros and cons of kicking it in the front versus the back seat, it seems...Read More

Beyoncé

#7 - Beyoncé - 1+1

Before you say a word, yes I'm writing about Beyoncé. Yes, Beyoncé Knowles the singer. Ha! I hope you don't have a problem with a self-proclaimed Hip-Hop head commenting on some R&B, but I actually dig the record. With it's...Read More

Kelly Rowland

#8 - Kelly Rowland ft. Lil Wayne - Motivation

From her Destiny’s Child days to the review I wrote for her previous Ms. Kelly album, I’ve heard my fair share of Kelly Rowland. Still, I’m no Rowlandologist, so while I’m sure truly dedicated fans will be brimming...Read More

Bad Meets Evil

#9 - Bad Meets Evil - Fast Lane

Unless you’re a true hip-hop head, and have been since the ‘90s, it’s hard to describe how excited I am to learn that Royce da 5’ 9” and Eminem have finally put their ridiculous beef aside and are once again making...Read More

Kid CuDi

#10 - KiD CuDi - Perfect Is The Word

When Lupe departed from hip-hop to record a post-punk LP as Japanese Cartoon, I was intrigued; when Weezy announced his intent to follow up critical and commercial blockbuster Carter III with a rock album, I was baffled; so,...Read More

Tinie Tempah

#11 - Tinie Tempah ft. Wiz Khalifa - Till I'm Gone

While rock and R&B import artists from England to the U.S. on a seemingly daily basis, so far U.K. hip-hop artists have found crossing the proverbial pond a tricky proposition (word to Dizzee Rascal). Hoping to be the first...Read More

Big Sean

#12 - Big Sean - I Don't Think They Want It

With his debut studio album, at long last, headed for store shelves, G.O.O.D Music mainstay Big Sean is suddenly having second thoughts. Reasoning, “I Don't Think They Want It,” the Motown repper has decided to push the...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#13 - Lupe Fiasco ft. Trey Songz - Out of My Head

Now that the, well, fiasco that was the release of Lupe's third full-length has largely died down, it's possible to appreciate Lasers for what it is: a quality, if uncharacteristically pop-oriented addition to the Chitown...Read More

Lil Wayne

#14 - Lil Wayne ft. Rick Ross - John

I don't know about y'all, but these past few months I've been praying to the hip-hop gods that installment number four in Lil Wayne's Carter saga will be every bit as brilliantly insane as its predecessor. While 6'7” was a...Read More

Big Sean

#15 - Big Sean - What Goes Around

Big Sean's road to greatness was a rocky one, the Detroit native didn't doubt himself for a moment; well aware that "What Goes Around Comes Around," the G.O.O.D. Music repper simply did his best, confident that karma would...Read More

Pitbull

#16 - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Nayer - Give Me Everything

Known for pumping out hits like BP pumps oil into the Gulf (is it too late for that joke?), Pitbull has developed the perfect formula for that thing we call the “single.” Year after year, I’ve heard a Pitbull song...Read More

Nicki Minaj

#17 - Nicki Minaj - Catch Me

As those who follow Nicki Minaj’s Twitter religiously (like I do) already know, only an hour ago the one and only human Barbie let loose of a brand new joint, Catch Me. Originally intended for Nicki’s platinum-selling...Read More

DJ Drama

#18 - DJ Drama ft. Fabolous, Roscoe Dash & Wiz Khalifa - Oh My

Industry tastemaker and mixtape icon DJ Drama is prepping for the release of his third full-fledged Gangsta Grillz album. For a taste of the bombastic musical goodness that's in store, check out Oh My, a high-impact club cut...Read More

Maejor Ali

#19 - Bei Maejor ft. J. Cole - Trouble

Trouble – we've all gotten into it at some point, and it's the subject of the latest from ATL/LA-by-way-of-Detroit wunderkind Bei Maejor. But in this case, it's the kind of trouble that is welcomed when it involves the...Read More
