Drake

#1 - Drake - 5AM in Toronto

Early this morning, before most of us had rolled out of bed—or into bed, if you happen to be a night owl--Drake quietly unleashed a new record via his official site. 5AM in Toronto is an unofficial sequel to 9AM in Dallas...Read More

Trinidad James

#2 - Trinidad Jame$ ft. T.I., Young Jeezy & 2 Chainz - All Gold Everything (Remix)

To paraphrase Victor Hugo, there's no stopping an idea whose time has come—and, judging by the massive response to Trinidad Jame$' debut single, it's safe to say that we're living in the age of All Gold Everything. Now...Read More

Juicy J

#3 - Juicy J ft. Young Jeezy & Big Sean - Show Out

It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway: every time Juicy J goes out, he's just gotta Show Out and throw his money around. On the follow-up to gloriously ig'nant album lead single Bandz a Make Her Dance, the Three 6...Read More

Eve

#4 - Eve ft. Pusha T & Juicy J - She Bad Bad (Remix)

She Bad Bad, the lead single off Eve's long-awaited senior set, failed to make a strong impression on Boothgoers when it first hit our front page in October 2012. Sometimes, though, all it takes to transform a so-so record...Read More

Lil Wayne

#5 - Lil Wayne ft. 2 Chainz - Rich as F**k

Evidently, Weezy F. Baby's made it his mission accentuate the positive in 2013. Having gotten a head start with the New Year's Eve release of (new) album lead single B**ches Like Me, theYMCMB heavyweight translates another of...Read More

Gucci Mane

#6 - Gucci Mane ft. 2 Chainz - Dirty Cup

Nothin on Ya, the lead single off Gucci Mane's next mixtape, failed to win over listeners in The DJBooth, despite a guest feature from Wiz Khalifa. Today, the Brick Squad CEO bounces back with follow-up Dirty Cup, an...Read More

DJ Scream

#7 - DJ Scream ft. Future, Wale & Ludacris - Cee-Lo

When you have had a career like Goodie Mobb and Gnarls Barkley member Cee-Lo, it is inevitable that you will come across a few humbling moments. For instance, maybe it was one of his four Grammy wins? It also could be having...Read More

Jeezy

#8 - Young Jeezy ft. 2 Chainz - RIP

Hip hop has had its fair share of songs about death. While some, like Puff’s Missing You, are an ode to a fallen friend, a few others, like Eminem’s aptly named Kill You or Pac’s Hit Em Up, focus on the emcee taking a...Read More

A$AP Rocky

#9 - A$AP Rocky ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yela, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big KRIT - 1 Train

Quick: list off seven of the hottest new emcees to emerge in the last few years. If you're anywhere near my wavelength, your list will look a lot like the lineup of A$AP Rocky's latest single. Following the tremendously...Read More

Tyga

#10 - Tyga ft. Rick Ross - Dope

Dr. Dre's 1992 debut solo single, Deep Cover, found a West Coast up-and-comer by the name of Snoop Doggy Dogg strapping up to commit “187 on an undercover cop.” Two decades and change later, Tyga resurrects the catch...Read More

Rick Ross

#11 - Rick Ross ft. GunPlay, French Montana, Yo Gotti & Lil Wayne - Hold Me Back (Remix)

Yesterday, in a decisive victory over GOP candidate Mitt Romney, Barack Obama was elected to a second term as President on the United States. Ballin' on the haters just isn't the same without a suitably fly musical...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#12 - Big K.R.I.T. ft. Bun B - Shine On

On a recent collabo with 9th Wonder, released as part of Crown Royal's digital music series, the Mississippi repper made clear that he intends to rule over the hip-hop game til the stars fall out of the sky. But he's not just...Read More

Iggy Azalea

#13 - Iggy Azalea - Work

Iggy Azalea hasn't been featured on the solo tip since last October, when she dropped off free mixtape TrapGold, but the ATL-by-way-of-Sydney rapper's been “Work, work, work, workin' on [her] sh*t,” in the meantime....Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#14 - Birdman Presents Rich Gang ft. Stevie J., Future, Tyga, Meek Mill & Mystikal - Fly Rich

Its fitting that the Birdman-founded group Rich Gang All-Stars released their debut mixtape during NBA All-Star weekend, because this newly-assembled collective is full of some of the bigger names in the rap game. The first...Read More

Kendrick Lamar

#15 - Kendrick Lamar ft. Drake - Poetic Justice

Featuring an iconic sample and a heavyweight guest feature, Poetic Justice was the one track off Kendrick Lamar's blockbuster debut set that screamed “potential single selection.” After scoring a massive hit with Swimming...Read More

Juelz Santana

#16 - Juelz Santana ft. Fabolous, Meek Mill & Rick Ross - Soft

Think Juelz Santana's coming too hard? The Harlem rhymesayer begs to differ—according to his latest mixtape single, it's his competition that's too Soft. The artist's first DJBooth feature since January 2010's Home Run,...Read More

Joe Budden

#17 - Joe Budden ft. Lil Wayne & Tank - She Don't Put It Down Like You

Joe Budden has a reputation for messy public breakups, but that doesn't mean he doesn't cherish memories of the good times he and his exes enjoyed together—particularly when those good times happened to take place in the...Read More

Trae The Truth

#18 - Trae The Truth ft. Future - Screwed Up

Have you heard the expression “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours”? For Trae The Truth and Future, it's not just an expression, but rather words they live by. Last week, Future released visuals for his Long Live...Read More

Yelawolf

#19 - Yelawolf - Way Out

Nothing helps an artist get the word out about a new project more than a blazing hot lead single, and nobody knows this better than the Shady/Interscope young gun, Yelawolf. On the lead single off Trunk Muzik Returns (the...Read More

DJ Kay Slay

#20 - DJ Kayslay ft. Fabolous, T-Pain, Rick Ross, Nelly & French Montana - About That Life

If you're gonna ride with DJ Kayslay, you'd better be About That Life. On the latest single off his long-awaited fifth solo album, following 2011 single 60 Second Assassin, the NYC mainstay recruits five artists who share his...Read More

Yelawolf

#21 - Yelawolf - F.A.S.T RIDE

Lupe Fiasco

#22 - Lupe Fiasco - Light Blue

It's good to see that in between canceling albums and crashing inaugurations, Lupe Fiasco's getting his regular lyrical workout in. Earlier today, the Chi-town heavyweight took to Twitter to unleash a record which he...Read More

Vado

#23 - Vado ft. Ace Hood, Meek Mill, French Montana & DJ Khaled - Don't Make Me Do It

Those who prefer the underground scene might see the laundry list of heavy-hitters on this cut and think to themselves, Don’t Make Me Do It. They would be remiss, however, because while Vado’s latest single has some...Read More
