Shane Eli

#1 - Shane Eli - I'm a Winner [Premiere]

With the rave Booth reviews he garnered for previously-featured cuts Grey Area and Knuckle Up, Shane Eli has every reason to feel like a champ – but even the highest praise from outside parties is no replacement for a...Read More

Goines

#2 - Goines ft. Arkansas Bo - Jim Brown [Premiere]

Widely hailed as one of the finest professional athletes in American history, Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown serves as inspiration for the debut solo feature from Goines, the Southern emcee first glimpsed as one-half...Read More

Jay Electronica

#3 - Jay Electronica ft. Diddy - The Ghost of Christopher Wallace

When there are two full moons in one month it is called a “Blue Moon," so it seems like we should have a term for the far rarer occasion when Jay Electronica drops ONE record in a month. The mysterious emcee sneaks in and...Read More

Mike Schpitz

#4 - Mike Schpitz - Mike Is Like (Freestyle)

Hailing from the rarely hailed city of Topeka, Kansas, Mike Schpitz is a relative newcomer to the DJBooth’s pages, but he’s already managed to win over (most) of Booth nation with his wit and unique rhyme style. Well,...Read More

New Breed

#5 - New Breed ft. Sean Kingston - Get Away

Way back in March 2009, South Floridian duo New Breed stepped into the Booth with their debut promo single – a track which, contrary to its title, seemed to leave our readers' minds decidedly un-blown. Today, however,...Read More

M.i

#6 - M.i. - Time

So much to listen to, so little Time... Fortunately, you've got DJBooth.net to help you decide what music is worth your while. With that said, those who choose to give M.i's first feature a listen are guaranteed to find those...Read More

The Canz

#7 - The Canz ft. Young Lyxx, Niko Villamor & FKi - Bananas

Most rappers make it their mission to “go hard,” but The Canz are a different breed; on this newly-leaked mixtape track, the Ghana-bred, Georgia-based twosome and several equally fresh cohorts venture beyond hard and go...Read More

Shane Eli

#8 - Shane Eli - Taste of What's to Come [Premiere]

With his last feature, the prophetically titled I'm a Winner, Shane Eli made clear that Grey Area and Knuckle Up were only the beginning of a bona fide hot streak. On mixtape leak numero cuatro (another world premiere!), the...Read More

Marky

#9 - Marky - Run On

Fresh off the wave of reader acclaim he garnered for Full Clip, a Booth-premiered freestyle dedicated to late Northeastern hip-hop icon Guru, DMV up-and-comer Marky draws inspiration from a somewhat more surprising musical...Read More

Stat Quo

#10 - Stat Quo - Ridin'

Good news!!! After what feels like more than decade of waiting I finally have a new single from Stat Quo’s epically delayed album Statlanta! Sorry, I’m just messing with you. Other than Ghetto USA we still don’t know...Read More

ArtOfficial

#11 - ArtOfficial ft. QuESt & Swamburger - Show Me Change

We've heard Miami, Florida crew ArtOfficial flip tracks by rock and jazz icons into live-band hip-hop gold, but can they work a similar brand of magic on classic cuts from their own genre? Judging by the latest single off...Read More

Pugs Atomz

#12 - Pugs Atomz & Grant Parks - Rocket Love [Premiere]

Now I was always told that having Rocket Love wasn’t exactly a good thing, if you catch my drift, but consummately smooth emcee and The Gent$ frontman Pugz Atomz begs to differ. Instead of speed, Pugz is referring to...Read More

B.X.C

#13 - B.X.C - Louder [Premiere]

Louder, the latest track from Windy City twosome B.X.C., may be making its exclusive world premiere right here in the Booth, but don't get it twisted; the track's natural environment is the street, blaring at trunk-rattling,...Read More

Jeff Chery

#14 - Jeff Chery - The Pair [Premiere]

What's Jeff Chery been up to since the late-March arrival over his long-awaited (but well worth the wait) Going Against the Grain mix-album? I'm glad you asked, because the answer is, like, totally cool: the ATL-based emcee...Read More

Thad Reid

#15 - Thad Reid - Stratosphere

Just how fly is Blue Collar Muzik emcee and reader favorite Thad Reid? Well, based on this standout track off his latest street album, you can expect to find him anywhere between six and 31 miles above the Earth's surface –...Read More

King Mez

#16 - King Mez ft. Nickelus F - Blow [Premiere]

Don't worry – North Carolina's King Mez hasn't gotten into the cocaine business. The word “Blow” in the title of this newly-leaked album cut (an exclusive world premiere!) refers not to the white powder but rather to...Read More

Styles P.

#17 - Styles P. - It’s Over

On the inaugural leak off his forthcoming full-length project, D-Block emcee Styles P. sends a simple message to hip-hop heads across the nation: It's Over. What's over, you may ask? Well, for ardent fans of the Northeastern...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#18 - Big K.R.I.T. ft. Devin The Dude - Moon & Stars [Premiere]

Like many of his esteemed colleagues at Cinematic Music Group, recent Booth favorite Big K.R.I.T. really, really enjoys his weed. If there's one thing the Mississippi native likes even better than getting stoned out of his...Read More

Yonas

#19 - Yonas - Push Em Back

If I had to compare Yonas’ new single Push Em Back to a city, it would definitely be Toronto. And if you have ever been to T-Dot, you should know exactly why; Toronto is a city with a little bit of everything and everyone,...Read More
