Rich Quick

#1 - Rich Quick x ASK? - They Fold

Why couldn't early Super Nintedo games have songs like this to blast? Okay, maybe technology wasn't up to par to include human voices yet, but you can't deny that it would have put you in the zone more. On the DJBooth...Read More

Taylor Bennett

#2 - Taylor Bennett - Demon Slayer

I know Chi-town is The Windy City, but with the Bennett brothers, it seems like Chicago is actually The City Of Brotherly Love. We all know about Chance The Rapper, but one of the fresher faces in the Chi music scene is his...Read More

Lorenzo Asher

#3 - Lorenzo Asher ft. XV - The Undying Brave

Normally, I try to remove my personal opinion from a feature write-up, but not today. Wow.... Lorenzo Asher's latest single has knocked my socks off. It may be a brave step to put my opinions out there, but I was inspired by...Read More

Hoodie Allen

#4 - Hoodie Allen - Show Me What You're Made Of

Have you ever dreamed of being able to do whatever you want? How about saying whatever you want? F**king whoever? (You can answer these questions out loud, its okay.) Seriously, though, think about the concept of no rules, no...Read More

G-Eazy

#5 - G-Eazy ft. Devon Baldwin - Let's Get Lost

I've never been on tour with a rap sensation like G-Eazy, but I can imagine that there are a lot of one night stands along the way. As the Oakland emcee/producer prepares for the start of his These Things Happen Europe Tour,...Read More

Rockboy K9

#6 - Rockboy K9 - What Chain

If the 1995 film Friday had a spin off TV show, it would definitely take place in Chicago. Besides the strong Hip-Hop scene and multitude of crazy personalities you'll meet on the streets, the program would shed some...Read More

Tech N9ne

#7 - Tech N9ne ft. Krizz Kaliko & Stevie Stone - Nobody Cares

Like all of us, Tech N9ne sometimes gets down on himself and begins to feel like Nobody Cares. Then he remembers that he's the most successful independent rapper of all time, and the founder of a thriving record label. The...Read More

Johnny Spanish

#8 - Johnny Spanish - Okay

Hindsight is always 20/20. But it's even sweeter when you look back and know that you've made the right decisions. Grant Johnny Spanish a few minutes of your time, while he recalls just how he was able to turn out Okay. For...Read More

SonReal

#9 - SonReal - Preach

On the days that SonReal has nothing to say, he wouldn't waste your time by opening his mouth. So when he does speak, you listen. On a newly-released freebie the Vancouver emcee is ready to Preach, but it's not a Reverend...Read More

OnCue

#10 - OnCue - That Feeling

If you're looking for OnCue at 10AM, your best bet is to start at the local bars. You'll most likely find him sipping on a Gin and Tonic, plotting his next move. Using a few of Hip-Hop's classics (The Chronic, Dedication 2,...Read More

Rich Quick

#11 - Rich Quick - Real Rugged Raw

Real, Rugged and Raw—three adjectives that almost always bode well, when applied to a hip-hop record. Rich Quick's latest feature, of course, is no exception to that rule. Making its world premiere right here on our front...Read More

Pell

#12 - Pell ft. Boldy James - SC2014

After first being featured in July of 2013, with Ocean View 2.0, Pell has become a steady Booth visitor with eight additional features. He's even toured with Booth-favorite Yonas, so it's safe to say he has been making some...Read More

June

#13 - JUNE - Living Color

I recently returned from a trip to Memphis where I got my "music nerd" on. Between all the live music, Sun Records, the Soul Museum, Drake (sort of) and Three 6 Mafia, something became clear during my brief stay: the Home of...Read More

BLACWATER

#14 - BLACWATER ft. Whosane - GOOD MAN

"Only God can judge us, for no man is fit to." I may have just made that expression up, but if I put quotes around it and "-Abraham" after it, you would take it as part of an important Biblical passage. Likewise for duo...Read More

Sonny Shotz

#15 - Sonny Shotz - Neon Hooligans

Summertime means long nights that become days and adventures with your best friends. And there's no better period of music to accompany those warmer vibes than 80's inspired grooves. The former front man of The Dean's List,...Read More

Chelsea Jane

#16 - Chelsea Jane - Where The Boys At?

If I heard Chelsea Jane tell me that "Boys drools and girls rule," when I was a child, I would have wholeheartedly agreed out of fear. If she told me that today, I'd might do the same. Why? Because the Queensland, Australia...Read More

SALVA

#17 - SALVA ft. Kurupt, ScHoolboy Q, Problem & Bad Lucc - Drop That B*tch

Although the Sons of N.W.A. may be touring and putting out music (yes, the group includes the actual sons of Dr. Dre and Eazy-E), it doesn't mean that other West Coast emcees can't rework some of the group's classics....Read More

Kap Kallous

#18 - Kap Kallous - Lighthouse

Lighthouses are generally viewed as either a symbol of isolation or hope. In Kap Kallous' self-directed visual for his latest single, Lighthouse, perception changes from the former into the latter. Some readers may be...Read More

Green Street

#19 - Green Street ft. Mickey Factz & Anik Khan - By Any Means

Thanks to their latest effort, one thing that you'll learn about hip-hop trio Green Street is that they are determined to make it; of course that means By Any Means necessary. Lucky for us, those means include the release of...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

#20 - ¡MAYDAY! x MURS as ¡MURSDAY! - TABLETOPS

You could always tell which middle school kids would still be into Hip-Hop 10 or 20 years later. If you saw a kid beatbox, use pens on the desk like drumsticks, or pound hands on the gym floor, someone who could dance or rap...Read More

Next Up


Tech N9ne

#21 - Tech N9ne ft. Ryan Bradley - Over It

I had the chance to see Tech N9ne perform live last week, and I'm still not Over It. Sure my legs are still sore, my ears still ringing and I've yet to take off my face paint (much to the chagrin of my grandma), but I still...Read More

Jez Dior

#22 - Jez Dior ft. G-Eazy - Old No. 7

With his last three features on our pages averaging around four stars, Jez Dior is slowly becoming a DJBooth favorite. With about a million reader approved features, G-Eazy has been a Booth favorite for sometime now. When the...Read More

Cane

#23 - Cane - Get Down

Statik Selektah is one of the rap game's most authentic producers; he also recently took part in our Behind The Board series. So, when I see his name attached to a project, I can definitely Get Down with it. Though he is...Read More
