Young Scolla

#1 - Young Scolla - Wonderful

Today hasn’t exactly been eventful, as all I did was drink copious amounts of water to recover from my actions during a very happy birthday weekend (22...yeah, getting old). While I was guzzling down my two-liter Smart...Read More

Mike Schpitz

#2 - Mike Schpitz - Dinner's Hot

Everyone has an opinion, but most of them are wrong. We all know I'm an exception to this rule, so let me share an opinion so that you won’t have to live through another regretful decision (sorry I couldn’t get back to...Read More

Yonas

#3 - Yonas - It Couldn't Be Done

They said it couldn’t be done. They thought DJBooth rising star Yonas couldn’t top his previous, highly rated successes like Mindless and In Too Deep. And yet, despite what they said, we have in our headphones perhaps one...Read More

Young Cash

#4 - Young Cash ft. Shawn Jay (Field Mob) - Stress Free

For most of us, occasional anxiety is simply a fact of life; Young Cash, however, is one of the lucky few who seem blessed to exist without a worry or a care – even when guns are blazing around him, he remains one...Read More

Shane Eli

#5 - Shane Eli ft. Kamilah Gibson - Happiest Regret [Premiere]

Have you ever experienced a long night of drinking that resulted in uncertain feelings about the sketchy details from the night before? I’m not talking about waking up with Mike Tyson’s tiger like in The Hangover, I’m...Read More

AZ

#6 - AZ - Feel My Pain

At first blush, the life of a big-shot rapper seems like it would be a walk in the park. But if you really take a minute to think about it... um... nope, still seems pretty great to me. While I'm not entirely certain what...Read More

Phil Adé

#7 - Phil Adé ft. Raekwon, Wale, tabi Bonney, & Raheem DeVaughn - Hollywood (Remix)

They say good things come to those who wait, and while I have no idea who “they” are, they must have been talking about Phil Adé’s Hollywood (Remix). Although it’s been almost six months to the day since we first...Read More

Lyriciss

#8 - Lyriciss - Hot Music

Are you looking for some Hot Music? I mean, I hope you are, because that's pretty much all we've got – in particular, the latest feature from DMV native and exclusive freestyle series alum Lyriciss should hit the spot....Read More

ArtOfficial

#9 - ArtOfficial - Don't Sweat the Technique

Putting a new spin on a hip-hop classic while remaining true to the source material is a delicate task, and it doesn't get more classic than Don't Sweat the Technique, the title track and lead single off Eric B. and Rakim's...Read More

Folkz

#10 - Whitefolkz ft. K-Beta - J.O.B.

Unless you’re Diddy’s son – was two cars for his 16th birthday really necessary? - all of us have had to take crappy jobs in order to keep the lights on while we chase our dreams, and new found DJBooth favorite...Read More

Los

#11 - Los ft. Chris Notez - Never Landing

If I were to peek out my window right now, I'm pretty sure I'd see at least two or three rappers soaring through the clouds; whether they're hanging out in the Stratosphere, taking precautions to avoid Crashing Down, or...Read More

Goines

#12 - Goines - Dope as Me [Premiere]

Is it humanly possible to achieve a level of dopeness greater than that of Suga City emcee Goines? Considering the staggering amount of acclaim he received for his first feature, Jim Brown, I have my doubts – and, as the...Read More

Shawn Chrystopher

#13 - Shawn Chrystopher - They Ain't Wanna Hear Me

When longtime reader fave Shawn Chrystopher speaks, DJBooth.net listens. Shockingly, though, there are some who simply refuse to heed his words – as the Inglewood native (and exclusive freestyle series alum) puts it on this...Read More

Hollyweerd

#14 - Hollyweerd ft. Rapper Big Pooh - Love Me [Premiere]

If the dirty south is funky again this summer, it’s not going to be because of Gucci Mane’s new cologne coming out, “Freaky Gurl Fragrances.” (Just kidding, but admit it. I had you going for a sec.) ATL quartet...Read More

Marky

#15 - Marky - Louis Squares

In an age of global overconsumption, the flawed adage of “more is better” is being pushed to make everyone believe that money can buy happiness. If you’re like most of America and can’t decide whether you should spend...Read More

Ab-Soul

#16 - Ab-Soul - MayDay

When you hear the term west coast you think of Los Angeles, you may even think of the Bay Area, but unless you’re from there, I can almost guarantee that you don’t think of Carson, CA. That may change soon if Ab-Soul...Read More

Reef the Lost Cauze

#17 - Reef the Lost Cauze ft. Big Noyd - What We Rep

Heads who have followed the careers of Philadelphia emcee Reef The Lost Cauze or Queensbridge veteran Big Noyd hardly need to be told what the Northeastern underground mainstays stand for. Fortunately for those behind the...Read More

KRNDN

#18 - Krondon (of Strong Arm Steady) - Incline [Premiere]

Devoted fans of Strong Arm Steady Gang emcee Krondon (previously heard flying solo on Eyes on Me) may have already downloaded their copies of the West Coast flame-spitter's latest mixtape. Those who choose to cop the...Read More

Nikki Lynette

#19 - Nikki Lynette ft. Mickey Factz - Glory Box [Premiere]

I find Nikki Lynette fascinating. Her style’s unique enough to get some major attention, but not so unique that she’s dismissed as completely odd. In other words, she’s in a musical sweet spot – she can take risks and...Read More
