G-Eazy

#4 - G-Eazy ft. Remo - I Mean It

There is a long history of rappers making famous proclamations (see: The Beastie Boys' No Sleep Till Brooklyn and Run-DMC's It's Like That), so it's no surprise to hear G-Eazy declare "I Mean It" on his latest record release....Read More

Da Deputy

#5 - Da Deputy ft. Black Cobain - L.C. Pt. 2

Da Deputy doesn't just kill beats; he executes them, in an elaborate and arguably sacrilegious fashion. On his first Booth feature, the sequel to a mixtape cut originally released back in 2011, the Fort Worth representative...Read More

Nikko Lafre

#6 - Nikko Lafre & Drew Love - Hometown Love

Late last month, Niko Lafre took us on a nighttime drive through the streets of Minneapolis, expressing his affection for his city without obscuring its dangerous side. While the freshly-released Hometown Love lacks its...Read More

Dizzy Wright

Witt Lowry

#8 - Witty - Like I Do

Witty is a sharp lyricist, but don't let his stage name give you the wrong impression. As those who tuned in for last month's Dinner for Two already know, the Connecticut repper is less interested in coming up with clever bon...Read More

OnCue

#9 - OnCue - AYM Coming Soon

Though OnCue's next album is still languishing on the shelf hard drive, the Connecticut representative has been hustling nonstop to keep his hungry fanbase satisfied in the meantime; this month has seen him drop off promo cut...Read More

Dizzy Wright

#10 - Dizzy Wright ft. Big Remo - BrILLiant Youth

Over the last year and change, Sin City's Dizzy Wright and NYC's Bishop Nehru have distinguished themselves as two of the most promising young artists in the hip-hop game. Now, streetwear brand LRG has brought these two...Read More

Tory Lanez

#11 - Tory Lanez - Teyana

Looks like someone's got a crush—and by “someone,” I mean T-Dot crooner Tory Lanez. New promo single Teyana finds the unsigned artist revealing his feelings for a chick whom he's long admired from afar, accompanied by...Read More

Madison | LST

#12 - Madison | LST - Even When It Hurts

Today marks Madison | LST's first appearance on our pages, but you'd best believe it ain't gonna be his last. On new single Even When It Hurts, the NYC-born, L.A.-based rhymesayer lets know just how determined he is to make...Read More

J.Lately

#13 - J.Lately - DADAS

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Dizzy Wright

#14 - Dizzy Wright - Spark Up the Flame

Next week, Dizzy Wright will be heading out on tour in support of his latest EP, State of Mind. To learn when he'll be visiting a city near you and/or cop tickets, visit Funk Volume's official site. Even if you don't...Read More

G-Eazy

#15 - G-Eazy ft. Devon Baldwin - Let's Get Lost

I've never been on tour with a rap sensation like G-Eazy, but I can imagine that there are a lot of one night stands along the way. As the Oakland emcee/producer prepares for the start of his These Things Happen Europe Tour,...Read More

Connor Evans

#16 - Connor Evans - Tryptophan

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Erk Tha Jerk

#17 - Erk Tha Jerk x Fly Commons - Blast Somebody

Ever have one of those days when you just wanted to Blast Somebody? Erk Tha Jerk most definitely has. Fortunately for his neighbors, though, the Bay Area representative has learned to channel that stress into microphone,...Read More

R.A. The Rugged Man

#18 - R.A. The Rugged Man ft. Amalie Bruun - Definition of a Rap Flow

Never heard someone rock the mic before? Not entirely sure what rapping even is? Then I can't fathom how you ended up browsing The DJBooth. Still, you could hardly ask for a better introduction to the topic than R.A. the...Read More

Locksmith

#19 - Locksmith - F**kin' Idols

Recently, Cali buzzmaker Locksmith asked his followers on social media which record off his latest street album they would like to see turned into a video. F**kin' Idols was the hands-down favorite. The fans having spoken,...Read More

Next Up


Famey Miscellaney

#21 - Famey Miscellaney - Poster Child

Philly's Famey Miscellaney may be a relative greenhorn in the game (and a newcomer to The DJBooth), but his allegiances lie with a bygone era of pop culture. In fact, he considers himself a Poster Child for 1990s revivalism....Read More

Nick Astro

#22 - Nick Astro x Odd Couple - Lies

When I was growing up, few things sucked more than having to spend an hour sitting in a pew on Sunday morning when I knew I could be outside enjoying some beautiful summer weather. On their latest collaborative single, Lies,...Read More
