Tyler, The Creator

Tyler, The Creator ft. Frank Ocean - She

Can we all take a moment and appreciate the fact that one of today's most-buzzed-about artists is a 20-year-old hip-hop Svengali who spits about rape and murder in a satanic growl, while dressed like a kid who just got home...Read More

Emilio Rojas

Emilio Rojas ft. Tenille - The Letter

Emilio Rojas is widely known as an emcee whose sole focus in life is the sun and the shade, parties and women, flashy cars and flashier jewelry, so it’s no surprise that new leak The Letter is an ode to Patron shots and...Read More

Grieves

Grieves - On the Rocks

Though a talented artist, Seattle up-and-comer Grieves would be the first to admit that he's not a perfect individual. In fact, he has admitted it, repeatedly and in great detail, in his previous Booth features. Single numero...Read More

Dee-1 - Spell Check

After an extended hiatus, the DJBooth.net Freestyle Series makes its triumphant return to our pages. Entry #242 comes courtesy of Dee-1, the New Orleans representative who hooked up with DJBooth to drop I Hope They Hear Me...Read More

Young Scolla

Young Scolla ft. Machine Gun Kelly - Skinny Kid

Reviewing records like this is always a bittersweet experience. While I rave about the sheer dopeness of the song, in the back of my mind I know I have to wait months before I taste more - Young Scolla's Seconds Away album is...Read More

Rock City

Rock City - We On

Though Caribbean-pop twosome Rock City's PTFAO (Put the F*cking Album Out) campaign didn't ultimately succeed (the duo recently parted ways with Konvict Muzik), brothers Don't Talk Much and Da Spokesman aren't down for the...Read More

Bekay

Bekay - Remember

And now for something completely different. While we pause on certain days to remember specific events in history, some can be felt and seen every day through the eyes of our acquaintances, friends and family. This week marks...Read More

Celeb Forever

Celeb Forever ft. Donnis & XV - I Don't Believe You

To paraphrase Jay-Z, money may not lie, but both women andmen do. Of course, for a dude like Celeb Forever, the untruths that come from the ladies hurt the most – thus, as he inform us on new mixtape single I Don't Believe...Read More

Will Brennan

Will Brennan - Get By

Crazy as it may seem to those of us who know the meaning of the word “downtime,” there are people out there who thrive on being constantly in motion; even if they could be convinced to slow their pace, the boredom would...Read More

Skyzoo

Skyzoo - The Definitive Prayer

An emcee and a beat. That's all. The Brooklyn born and bred Skyzoo, making his first solo feature appearance on our pages since the Speakers on Blast era, straight "fountain pen baptizes" bars on his latest effort, The...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks - Tomorrow Today (Kurser Remix)

Fresh off the arrival of his Booth-acclaimed Tomorrow, Today LP, longtime Booth favorite K. Sparks(a freestyle series alumnus) returns with a fresh remix of the project's title track. Here, frequent production collaborator...Read More

Killer Mike

Killer Mike - At the Top

In a genre built on comparisons, Killer Mike, or Mike Bigga, whichever you may prefer, is the modern day Ice Cube. Yes, while we're aware Cube is still around, I'm referring to Death Certificate-era Cube and not Are We There...Read More
13
El Prez

El Prez - I'm Gone (King Kong)

Picture this scene: Beat drops, El Prez begins to rhyme and girls are running to the dance floor spilling their drinks yelling out, "I just wanna dance ... this is my song." In an era of too many shout outs and instrumentals...Read More

M.i

M.i - After I'm Gone

What?! You haven't downloaded M.i's new mixtape yet? Though the project dropped way back in early April, listeners who aren't as with-it as your average Boothgoer still have time to jump on the Lone Star State...Read More

The League of Extraordinary Gz

The League of Extraordinary Gz - Yes He Is

They say there’s strength in numbers, and if that’s true than Austin, TX octet The League of Extraordinary Gz are Samson, when he still had his hair. For those not up on their Biblical references, that means crazy f**king...Read More

GhostWridah

GhostWridah ft. The Strangerz - Victory

Anyone else noticed a certain pungent odor emanating from our mixtape page lately? Kinda like bay laurel, with a hint of Gatorade? Oh, right, that's the sweet smell of Victory, and it's coming from GhostWridah's latest street...Read More

Mac Miller

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

Omen (Producer)

Omen ft. Diggy Simmons, Ashton Travis, & Mike Jaggerr - Get Back

The title of Omen's forthcoming set, along with politically-charged lead single Negro Spiritual, seem to suggest a project packed from top to bottom with hard-hitting social commentary – but, hey, even Black Heroes have to...Read More

Robbie Casablanca

Robbie Casablanca - Hello Forever

I like weird, far-out sounds as much as the next guy – maybe more, depending on the 'next guy' – but damn, do artists like Robbie Casablanca make my job difficult. Simply put, if there's a neat label that describes what...Read More
