Big Boi

#1 - Big Boi ft. A$AP Rocky. Phantogram & A-Ha - Lanes

Ever listened to Lines, the A$AP Rocky-assisted standout off Big Boi's sophomore LP, and said to yourself, “This would sound great if you crossed it with A-Ha's Take on Me.”? I sure as hell have not, but the thought...Read More

ScHoolboy Q

#2 - SchoolBoy Q ft. 2 Chainz - What They Want

Yesterday, ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron LP debuted at the very top of the Billboard 200 chart. Clearly, he knows how to give the people What They Want. To celebrate the set's success, hip-hop's foremost bucket hat aficionado has...Read More

Future

#3 - Future ft. Pharrell, Pusha T & Casino - Move That Dope

I don't speak from personal experience, but I'd imagine the life of a drug kingpin getting pretty tedious. Mixing, cutting, cooking, and bagging ones ...um..."product" is simply exhausting. Never fear drug dealers of the...Read More

Drake

#4 - Drake - Trophies

Earlier this morning, we brought y'all We Made It [Freestyle], the first of “four or five” tracks Drake plans to liberate in celebration of the New Year. Numero dos, the just-released Trophies, follows closely in its...Read More

2 Chainz

#5 - 2 Chainz ft. Skooly - IMA DOG

2 Chainz may live in a gigantic house, drive a gleaming whip and rock the finest fashions but, deep down, he's just another animal. Don't believe me? You will when you see the ATL rhymesayer dropping a deuce in your front...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#6 - Big K.R.I.T. ft. Big SANT & Smoke DZA - Steps

Often, when an emcee is hard at work on a new project they will drop a "buzz single" to tide fans over; per usual Big K.R.I.T. Steps up his game. As an appetizer to his forthcoming album Cadillactica (due out later this...Read More

ScHoolboy Q

#7 - ScHoolboy Q ft. Raekwon - Blind THreats

Next week, TDE fast-riser ScHoolboy Q will be unleashing his third studio album, one of the most anticipated hip-hop releases of 2014. If you're not excited for the LP... well, you may want to check your pulse. Assuming you...Read More

Busta Rhymes

#8 - Busta Rhymes ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Q-Tip - Thank You

Counted your blessings lately? Yeah, me neither. If you need a little help coming up with sh*t to be grateful for, you can start by saying, “Thank You,” for Busta Rhymes's latest single. In a stark departure from the...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#9 - Lupe Fiasco ft. Ty Dolla $ign - Snitches

Just when I think I've got Lupe Fiasco pegged, he winds up and throws another curveball. On reading the title of his latest feature, Snitches, I was expecting a heady lyrical deconstruction of the street code. Instead, this...Read More

Rick Ross

#10 - Rick Ross ft. Jeezy - War Ready

With Rick Ross's sixth full-length less than a month away from release, the South Florida heavyweight's enemies in the game are undoubtedly developing itchy trigger fingers. On the latest single off the set, follow-up to...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#11 - Big K.R.I.T. - Egyptian Cotton

Once upon a time, Big K.R.I.T. was struggling to make rent. Now, luxury pervades every aspect of his life—even during the hours he spends snoozing. On the fifth and latest #WeekofKRIT song release, the Mississippi...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#12 - Wiz Khalifa - We Dem Boyz (Hol Up)

Unless you have been off the internet all day today (which seems highly unlikely if you are reading this feature), then you probably know that Kanye's College Dropout turned 10 years old. If all goes well for Wiz Khalifa, we...Read More

Kid Ink

#13 - Kid Ink ft. Styles P - Fired Up

While it isn't everything, social media status is an important piece of the puzzle for an artist in today's music industry. If you are still using Geocities, you need some work, but if you are like Kid Ink, you're doing just...Read More

Trae The Truth

#14 - Trae The Truth ft. The Lox - Reckless

Trae The Truth didn't get to where he is today by carefully weighing the pros and cons of every decision. He's more the type to choose his path by instinct, and let the chips fall where they may. Reckless? Perhaps, but the...Read More

A$AP Ferg

#15 - A$AP Ferg - Let It Go

When ASAP Ferg finds himself at odds with a fellow hustler, he follows a simple rule that's served him well over the years: Let It Go. Not “Let it go” as in, "Take a deep breath and walk away from the situation;” “Let...Read More

Drake

#16 - Drake ft. Soulja Boy - We Made It [Freestyle]

If you would, Booth readers, bow your heads for a brief moment of silence... OK, we're good. What were we solemnly commemorating just now? Drake's domination of the hip-hop game, of course. On a loosie freestyle, the Young...Read More

Timbaland

#17 - Timbaland ft. Drake, Jay Z & James Fauntleroy - Know Bout Me

Believe it or not, but its been four years since Timbaland released Shock Value II, his last full-length album. When he isn't in the studio creating hits for Jay Z, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke, however, he has been...Read More

Big Sean

#18 - Big Sean - Sanctified

No, you aren't experiencing Déjà vu. This isn't a re-release of Rick Ross' Mastermind standout, Sanctified, but rather an extended version of Big Sean's truncated contribution. Apparently, Sean would like the world to hear...Read More

ScHoolboy Q

#19 - ScHoolboy Q - Man of THe Year

Update: We have added the Dave Free-directed visuals for ScHoolboy's Man of the Year. It's still another month before TIME unveils its 2013 Man (or woman) of tHe Year, but ScHoolboy Q's so certain of his prospects that he...Read More

DJ Mustard

#20 - DJ Mustard ft. YG, Jeezy & Que - Vato

Though DJ Mustard has lent his production prowess to numerous Booth-featured joints—I won't even try to list them—and even co-headlined one (YG's Left, Right), the Bay Area superproducer has yet to bring us a solo...Read More

Next Up


Ice Cube

#21 - Ice Cube - Sic Them Youngins on Em

At 44, Ice Cube is no longer quite as intimidating a public figure as he was during the heyday of N.W.A. In truth, however, his stature in the industry has made him even more dangerous to his enemies than before. On the...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#22 - Big K.R.I.T. - Wolf On Wall Street

Though The Wolf of Wall Street was a critical favorite, it was snubbed at the 86th annual Academy Awards. The Oscar shutout may have been disappointing, but Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio and company can console...Read More

Big Sean

#23 - Big Sean ft. Miguel - Ashley

I could say that Ashley (off Big Sean's 2013 album Hall Of Fame) is just now getting the visual treatment, but that just wouldn't do it justice. It is more accurate to say its gets the cinematic treatment, because the Ellis...Read More
