Chance the Rapper

Chance The Rapper ft. Childish Gambino - Favorite Song

Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Watching Movies

Based on the title of Mac Miller's forthcoming sophomore full-length, I assumed Watching Movies With the Sound Off was one of the Pittsburgh emcee's own hobbies. Turns out, I had it completely twisted; on freshly-minted song...Read More

Tuki Carter

Tuki Carter ft. Wiz Khalifa - She Said

While “That’s what she said!” jokes seem to have jumped the shark, a properly-placed knee slapper is still good for a few laughs. For instance, Tuki Carter goes hard on his new song… that’s what She Said! Okay, so...Read More

Julian Malone may not Give a Eff about much in this world, but the 2008ighties emcee would be lying if he said he wasn't enjoying the trappings of success. Tokyo, the latest single off Malone's forthcoming street album, finds...Read More

Jarren Benton

Jarren Benton - Cadillacs & Chevys

Razor Blades & Steak Knives, the lead single off Jarren Benton's forthcoming full-length, was every bit as unhinged as you'd expect from a joint dedicated to a rapper's favorite cutting implements. While the follow-up finds...Read More

Alex Wiley

Alex Wiley ft. Freddie Gibbs - Creepin

Based on the title of his forthcoming album (Club Wiley) and his label home (Closed Sessions), you might assume that Alex Wiley only makes music for a select, exclusive group of lucky listeners. Thankfully, the emcee is much...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton - Can't Hold Us

Dust

Dust vs. OP - TEL AVIV Part III

Jered Sanders - Closed Caption

No, unfortunately Jered Sanders' latest effort has not been Closed Captioned for the hearing impaired. (Though, if anyone feels like typing the lyrics out, I'm sure your efforts would be much appreciated.) That said, those...Read More

Jon Connor

Jon Connor ft. Talib Kweli - Rise Up

If Jon Connor is, as the title of his next album suggests, in an Unconscious State, he must be one of those coma patients who hears and remembers everything that happens despite the appearance of being out cold. New single...Read More

Yonas

Yonas - Feel the Love

After years on the hustle, Big Apple emcee Yonas is finally starting to Feel the Love he so richly deserves. (We in The DJBooth, of course, were with him every step of the way.) To celebrate his rising stature in the game,...Read More

Maffew Ragazino

Maffew Ragazino ft. Spazz One - Never Ran, Never Will

Ugly Heroes - Graves

Apollo Brown, Red Pill and Verbal Kent may not be the most handsome trio in the hip-hop game (By their own estimation—they look fine to me.), but what they lack in looks, the Ugly Heroes more than make up for in lyrical and...Read More
