GhostWridah

#1 - GhostWridah ft. ¡Mayday! - Still Not Famous

While I realize that I'm more likely to be struck dead by lightning while on my way to cash in a 100 million-dollar Powerball ticket than to become a nationally-known celebrity on the strength of my DJBooth.net track reviews,...Read More

GemStones a.k.a. Gemini

#2 - GemStones - Sarcasm

GemStones? Like I want to listen to that guy. Actually, forgive my Sarcasm. *Ahem*. After a nearly two year mini-retirement, his last featured cut was 2008’s Underappreciated, Gem is back with his new track Sarcasm...Read More

Jeff Chery

#3 - Jeff Chery ft. Ray Lavender - Cuttin

After over a year of waiting, Jeff Chery's Booth-sponsored Going Against the Grain street album is so close I can almost taste it. What does it taste like? Beats me – it was just a figure of speech. If you really want to...Read More

#4 - Bizarre ft. Tech N9ne & Nate Walka - Believer

Frankly, there are more than a couple people who doubt D12 alumnus Bizarre’s ability to make seriously engaging music after years of outlandish rhyme behavior (myself included), but his new single Believer might be exactly...Read More

Chiddy Bang

#5 - Chiddy Bang ft. MGMT - The Opposite of Adults (KIDS)

Once upon a time, we were all The Opposite of Adults – Booth newcomers Chiddy Bang and Xaphoon Jones still consider themselves KIDS and, to paraphrase that classic Toys 'R' Us jingle, they don't wanna grow up anytime soon....Read More

J The S

#6 - J The S ft. Franco - Put My Cape On

If you tuned in for last week's Booth countdown on Don Cannon and DJ Infamous' Infamy Radio, you've already gotten a taste of Put My Cape On, the new single off J The S' recent, DJBooth.net-sponsored Wish You Were Here...Read More

Marky

#7 - Marky - Victory Lap

Some tracks really don’t need a lot of explanation (I’m looking at you We Get High), but Marky’s new single Victory Lap has a back story worthy of mention. If the horn-heavy, heavily soul influenced beat on the DMV fast...Read More

#8 - DV & Shabaam Sahdeeq - Time Is Now

Is it just me, or has North Carolina been producing more than its fair share of talented up-and-comers lately? Whatever's in the water that J. Cole, Kooley High, A. Moss, and Tom Hardy (to name a few) have been sipping on...Read More

#9 - Aviator - Tell Me Why

Do you like being asked rhetorical questions ? Of course you do – and, since that's the case, you'll doubtless enjoy Tell Me Why, the first Booth feature from up-and-coming emcee Aviator. On this cut, the lead single off...Read More

Sammy Adams

#10 - Sam Adams - Driving Me Crazy

Making his extraordinarily unlikely DJBooth debut today is Sam Adams, the now 288-year-old political philosopher and founding father who….wait…what? It’s not that Sam Adams? My bad. Whether Sam Adams takes his name from...Read More

Nickelus F

#11 - Nickelus F ft. XV - Shine On

Pink Floyd's Shine On (You Crazy Diamond) was an epic, nine-part composition dedicated to former band member Syd Barrett, whose heavy use of LSD had driven him permanently over the edge. Heavy stuff. Thankfully, this Shine...Read More

Chiddy Bang

#12 - Chiddy Bang x Ellie Goulding - Under the Sheets (Remix)

Fresh off their Booth-approved remix of the Gorillaz' spacey Stylo, emcee-producer duo Chiddy Bang are back to introduce fans to a UK phenom who has yet to make the big jump stateside. On the inaugural leak off their...Read More

Costell

#13 - Costell - Timeless (Intro)

This may be the first you've heard of Costell but, if his first Booth feature is to be believed, it won't be the last – not by a long shot. On the intro track off his forthcoming full-length, the Queens native lets...Read More

#14 - Fly Gypsy - Sexy B*tch (Remix)

I’m trying to find the words to say this without being disrespectful, but personally speaking, I’d rather listen to a Yung Berg mixtape than David Guetta’s hit track Sexy B*tch again. It was enjoyable the first twenty...Read More

K. Sparks

#15 - K. Sparks ft. Chris Young - Watching Me (Kurser Remix)

When reader favorite K. Sparks asked online commenters to “Stop stalkin' me” on the original version of A Day in the Life track Watchin' Me, the remark sounded like the joke it obviously was. On this remix, the winning...Read More

Freddie Gibbs

#16 - Freddie Gibbs - The Ghetto

In his recent, Booth-exclusive interview with DJ Z, Gary, Indiana representative Freddie Gibbs discussed the feeling of having one foot in the music game and the other in the streets, admitting that until recently, he wasn't...Read More

Hollywood FLOSS

#17 - Hollywood FLOSS - Mr. Big Stuff

Do short people really have it tough? As an American male of very average stature (5'11” on my license, 6'0” when I'm rounding up), I have absolutely no idea. For a more informed take on the matter, we turn to Hollywood...Read More

Question?

#18 - Question? ft. Spark & Verse Da Ink - Talkin Down

If you're lucky enough to be in Austin, Texas for this month's SXSW festivities, you'd be crazy not to attend Question's showcase this evening (at local venue La Zona Rose), where he'll be debuting a new track off his...Read More

ArtOfficial

#19 - ArtOfficial ft. K. Sparks - The Payback

As anyone who’s been to a Roots show can attest, live instrument hip-hop is better. It just is. So why don’t we hear more groups like Miami-based jazz/rock hip-hop outfit ArtOfficial? Only the rap gods know, so for now...Read More
