J. Cole

#1 - J. Cole ft. Miguel - Power Trip

While all artists appreciate their fans, J. Cole really loves them. How else can you interpret the Valentine's Day release of the latest Born Sinner singler, other than as a present? On second thought, maybe I’m wrong,...Read More

Drake

#2 - 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

50 Cent

#3 - 50 Cent ft. Kendrick Lamar - We Up

This past July, 50 Cent released New Day, a beefed-up Alicia Keys single that featured additional accompaniment from Dr. Dre. Despite Curtis' powerful collaborators and his longtime track record, the single made little...Read More

Kid CuDi

#4 - Kid CuDi - Immortal

Back in 2009, alt-hip hop heavyweight Kid CuDi linked up with indie-rockers MGMT (as well as electronic act Ratatat) to create Pursuit of Happiness, a Man on the Moon inclusion which went on to achieve Platinum certification...Read More

Juicy J

#5 - Juicy J ft. The Weeknd - One of Those Nights

You ever have One of Those Nights? You know, the kind of night where you hit the club with The Weeknd, pop a few bottles of expensive champagne, and go home with someone else's S.O.? Yeah, me neither—but Juicy J. recently...Read More

T.I.

#6 - T.I. ft. Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B & Kris Stephens - Memories Back Then

When a top-tier artist drops an album as dope as Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, you can be sure that there are a few quality cuts that, for whatever reason, didn't make it onto the final tracklist. In the case of Memories...Read More

Wale

#7 - Wale ft. Tiara Thomas - Bad

Remember when mixtapes were largely considered "throwaway" projects, often released without much thought, effort, or original production in order to promote a larger, for-purchase LP? Thankfully, those days are behind us....Read More

Lil Wayne

#8 - 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

Akon

#9 - Akon ft. Wiz Khalifa - Dirty Work

Stripping is Dirty Work, but someone's gotta do it. At least, so says Akon on his latest Booth feature, a new single off his long-delayed senior set. The final, radio-ready version of a cut originally leaked to the 'net in...Read More

A$AP Rocky

#10 - A$AP Rocky ft. Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam - Wild for the Night

Today, A$AP Rocky saw all of his hard work come to fruition with the release of his major-label debut album. An achievement like that calls for celebration; sure enough, we find the Harlem spitter going Wild for the Night on...Read More

Drake

#11 - Drake - Started From The Bottom

It might very well seem like just yesterday that Drake released Take Care, but it's actually been 14 months and counting since the YMCMB artist delivered his sophomore album to the masses. Fortunately, fans of the Toronto...Read More

Jeremih

#12 - Jeremih ft. Lil Wayne & Natasha Mosley - All the Time

Jeremih likes his Birthday Sex, but the Windy City R&B hitmaker doesn't need a special occasion to get it in. In fact, if the Def Jam signee didn't have a musical career to attend to, he and his girl would be going at it on a...Read More

Kid Ink

#13 - Kid Ink ft. Wale & Meek Mill - Bad Ass

Fresh off signing with RCA Records, Kid Ink is undoubtedly feeling like a little bit of a badass. The West Coast repper's own style, toughness and cocky attitude, however, aren't the main focus of his major-label debut...Read More

Game

#14 - Game ft. Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Fabolous & Jeremih - All That (Lady)

On the lead single off his critically and Booth-acclaimed new album, Game recruited four of his most eminent musical colleagues for a Celebration of the things that make his day-to-day existence dope as f**k, with a special...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#15 - Lupe Fiasco - Jonylah Forever

This Monday, March 11, in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago, a six-month-old girl named Jonylah Watkins lost her life after an unknown gunman opened fire in the direction of her father, who was changing her diaper at the...Read More

Hit-Boy

#16 - Hit-Boy ft. Audio Push, Problem & Juicy J - T.U.

As anyone who's spent time around alcoholics is aware, “I know my limits,” is secret code for, “I'm gonna get tore up and ain't nobody gonna stop me.” Now, I'm not saying Hit-Boy has a drinking problem but, if his...Read More

Sean Kingston

#17 - Sean Kingston ft. Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa - Beat It

In the works since way back in 2010, Sean Kingston's junior studio album has been plagued with setbacks and false starts from the get-go. Determined to get the project on the release calendar once and for all, the Island-pop...Read More

Fabolous

#18 - Fabolous ft. Chris Brown - Ready

Before you hit “play,” may I suggest lighting a few candles, perhaps slipping into something a little more comfortable? Just making sure you're really and truly Ready for the smoothness in store. The lead single off...Read More

The Dream

#19 - The-Dream ft. Fabolous - Slow It Down

Fun as it may be to do (what currently passes for) the Harlem Shake, idiotic arm-flailing and air-humping isn't going to help get your partner in the mood. Of course, making romance requires not only the right moves, but an...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#20 - 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

Justin Timberlake

#21 - Justin Timberlake - Mirrors

Attention readers: if you've recently run into a "chick" named Molly, get in touch with Tyga ASAP. The YMCMB signee hasn't seen "her" in a hot minute, according to his latest street single, and he's starting to get a little...Read More

B.o.B

#23 - B.o.B x Big Boi - Double or Nothing

When it came time to commission a theme song for upcoming shooter game Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, Electronic Arts wasn't about to settle for just one big-name artist. No, it had to be Double or Nothing. On this...Read More
