Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Donald Trump

I have to admit that before I started this write-up I wasn’t particularly familiar with Mac Miller's music. You can now consider me one of an ever-growing group of converts. Signed to Rostrum Records, a label that has...Read More

Sir Michael Rocks

Sir Michael Rocks - Coochie Crook

I know what you’re thinking. Coochie Crook is a hilarious title for a song, maybe the most double-take inducing since Lil Wayne and Drake’s Gonorrhea. Thankfully, Coochie Crook, the latest from Cool Kids emcee Sir Michael...Read More

Devin Miles

Devin Miles ft. Fashawn - So Real

Your average up-and-coming rapper might be able to claim a 60-70 percent realness level. Maybe 90, on a particularly hard-hitting record. For Booth newcomer Devin Miles, however, nothing less than perfection will do – in...Read More

Radio Ramone

Radio Ramone ft. Fame - Already Gone

Just how fly is Radio Ramone? So much so that he needs not just one, but at least two records to adequately answer the question. Having covered the topic of altitude on his last feature, which found the Sin City...Read More

Neako

Neako ft. Wiz Khalifa - Flesh

I don't know about y'all, but patience has never been my strong suit – be it a package in the mail or a new album from a favorite artist, if I know it's on its way, you can bet it'll be on my mind 24/7. Thus, I have a lot...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks ft. JD - Drummer Boy

No longer content simply to bring joy to heads everywhere by spitting hot rhymes over banging production, perennial Booth fave K. Sparks has set his sights on something bigger with his latest project – as he puts it in the...Read More

Pharoahe Monch

Pharoahe Monch ft. Jean Grae & Royce Da 5’9 - Assassins

I spent most of my recent review for Pharoahe Monch’s new album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) praising the immaculate lyricists refusing to water down his relentlessly deep and confrontational flows. While that musical courage...Read More

Pro'Verb

Pro'Verb ft. yU (of Diamond District) - Too Hip-Hop

It hardly needs to be said that Booth staff and readers have a higher tolerance for raw, authentic beats and rhymes than your average listener, but the title of Pro'Verb's first feature nonetheless gave me pause; could the...Read More

The Dean's List

The Dean’s List - Dear Professor

Individuals able to pursue an artistic vision while maintaining an uncompromising standard of excellence at work and/or school have always been a mystery to me as a normal, fallible human being. What's the secret to achieving...Read More

Jean Grae

Jean Grae ft. Styles P & Talib Kweli - R.I.P.

Around my way, when something or someone needs to be described as good, dope or just plain authentic, people say, "That's rough." As for this record right here? This record right here (in my Katt Williams voice)? One of the...Read More

Phene

Phene ft. Tenille - I Want the World

I know I say this on the regular, but damn, time flies! For example, it hardly feels like it's been over a year since Phene made his Booth debut with Freedom Ain't Free. Extended absence or no, the ATL/Central Pa.-repper's...Read More

LA & Mr. Music

LA & Mr. Music - Best Days

Ah, to be a kid again... Actually, scratch that; I kinda dig the whole no curfew, being able to buy liquor and vote thing. The Fire duo LA & Mr. Music, on the other hand, would give up the responsibilities and the perks of...Read More

Wil May

Wil May - Maybe Love

Nearly four months after the arrival of Wil May's acclaimed Booth debut, What You Waiting For, fans in the Booth may be starting to wonder what he's waiting for. Well, those starving for new tunes will be happy to hear that...Read More

Gods'Illa

Gods’illla - Sal’s Pizzeria

It’s been almost a year since I wrote Gods’illa intro to the Booth for Protect It, and despite the fact that their features have been few and far between, I was glad that I could do another write-up on the east coast...Read More

Illvibe Collective

Illvibe Collective ft. A.R.M. - Medicine Men

Sick of the same old, same old, but can't afford a trip overseas at the moment? I feel you – and, as luck may have it, I've got something that'll do wonders for your headstate. On their latest single (and first Booth...Read More

Fortilive

Fortilive ft. Neenah - Make Up

Hey, who turned my clock forward an hour? And why is it still bright outside when the Booth drops the hottest songs of the day? Chill out Gucci Mane, the government didn’t steal daylight from us, it’s just an old...Read More

Pharoahe Monch

Pharoahe Monch ft. Styles P & Phonte - Black Hand Side

Taking its name from Queen Latifah’s 1994 single, Black Hand Side is Pharaohe Monch’s latest effort featuring Styles P and rapper/singer Phonte. Over producer Mike Loe’s soulful violin sample, the three emcees flow (and...Read More

Dujeous

Dujeous - Throne

Formerly regular visitors to our front page, Dujeous have been conspicuously absent from the Booth since bringing us the bummed-out but dope Death & Taxes back in December '09. Well, I'm happy to say that the Big Apple crew...Read More

Kyle Rapps - Make Ninja Moves

The 237th entry in DJBooth.net and Streetammo's Exclusive Freestyle Series comes courtesy of Kyle Rapps, the Jersey-born, Harlem-based up-and-comer who recently teamed up with KRS-One on Rent (Remix). On his brand new,...Read More
