Mac Miller

#1 - 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

David Dallas

#2 - David Dallas ft. Freddie Gibbs - Caught in a Daze

You can call David Dallas a daydreamer, a space cadet or even an ADD sufferer, but don't expect him to take it as an insult. If the New Zealand-bred hopeful looks like he's Caught in a Daze, he's simply deep in thought on how...Read More

Crooked I

#3 - Crooked I - Everyday

If everyone were exactly like Crooked I... well, I'm not sure if the world would be a better place, but it would certainly be a realer one. Those of us who wouldn't be able to handle the Long Beach native's wild life on the...Read More

Shane Eli

#4 - Shane Eli ft. Jason Caesar - The Night Is Young

To say that Shane Eli's last feature made an impact would be an early candidate for Understatement of the Year. How is the Cali phenom ever gonna follow up the (dare I say) classic When We Were Kings? Well, he's just gonna do...Read More

Uptown XO

#5 - Uptown XO - All I Wanna Do (House Party Anthem)

When artists talk about wanting to party/get down/rock- 'n' -roll till the break of dawn, do you ever get the feeling they have something a little more risque in mind? Well, you're right. On Uptown XO's latest single, the...Read More

Torch

#6 - Torch ft. Rick Ross & Kevin Cossom - All Mine

Spring is in the air - “can you feel it?” (word to The Jacksons). The days are getting longer, the sun is a little warmer and, if you're Torch, you've messed around and caught that spring fever – love is in the air! And...Read More

Jon Connor

#7 - Jon Connor - All I Need

The 238th entry in DJBooth.net and Streetammo's Exclusive Freestyle Series comes courtesy of Jon Connor, the Flint, Michigan emcee who earned reader approval for Epic (Remix) and Keep Ya Head. On his brand new, exclusive All...Read More

Dujeous

#8 - 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

Pharoahe Monch

#9 - 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

J. Capri

#10 - J. Capri ft. Charlie Smarts - All for You

J. Capri's last Booth feature may have found the emcee getting Empowered over a hard-hitting beat by Johnny Juliano, but don't think for a second that he does what he does simply to increase his own clout. On the contrary –...Read More

Neako

#11 - 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

Chuck L.i.

#12 - Chuck L.i. ft. Dave Coresh - I Need Your Soul

Listeners beware: the moment you click “play” on Chuck L.i.'s latest feature, the emcee will reach through your speakers/headphones into your ear canals and extract the very essence of your being, leaving you nothing more...Read More

TP

#13 - TP ft. King Mez, Halo & Heather Victoria - Gotta Work

Readers may not recognize Booth newcomer TP (unless you're a big Tar Heels fan – he was #14) but if the North Carolina native has anything to say about it, it won't be long before are hailing him as a hip-hop hero. Well...Read More

Lil B

#14 - Lil B ft. Jean Grae & Phonte - Base for Your Face

To be completely honest, there’s been a lot of debate around the DJBooth offices about posting Lil B. On one hand the former Pack member is undeniably a phenomenon, but on the other odes to Wonton Soup don’t exactly meet...Read More

theBREAX

#15 - theBREAX - More Of

Way back in March of 2009, theBREAX introduced themselves to Booth readers with For What, a retro-informed single so fresh that, by the time listeners realized the Cali trio were preaching a very different message from your...Read More

Prote-J

#16 - Prote-J - Bigger Things

It may not be very reassuring to hear when you're down, but it's true: no matter how bad things are, there's always someone out there who has it worse. Absent since last May's So Sick freestyle, up-and-coming emcee Prote-J's...Read More

Jelani

#17 - Jelani - Paradise

On Booth debut De La Vega, Jelani gave us a glimpse into his daily life, explaining that, though his pockets could stand to be a little more flush, his musical ambition and the urban landscape around him provide everything he...Read More

M.i

#18 - M.i ft. Mikkey Halsted - Take a Loss

Nearly a year has passed since M.i. stepped into the Booth with his first feature, a cut which found him pursuing a beautiful woman (who may or may not have been a metaphor for success in the music game). In the Time since,...Read More

Radio Ramone

#19 - 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
