Rich Quick

G-Eazy

G-Eazy ft. Remo - I Mean It

There is a long history of rappers making famous proclamations (see: The Beastie Boys' No Sleep Till Brooklyn and Run-DMC's It's Like That), so it's no surprise to hear G-Eazy declare "I Mean It" on his latest record release....Read More

Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne - Strangeulation Cypher

For any semi-serious Kung Fu movie fans, The Game of Death is one of the genre's biggest What Ifs. The premise was a simple yet intriguing one that is centered around a tiered building of masters in various fields of martial...Read More

Pro.Era

Pro.Era - Hail Razor

Extortion, a Kirk Knight solo joint selected as the lead single off Pro.Era's forthcoming EP with Scion AV, won lukewarm reviews when it hit our frontpage last week. Now that they've had a chance to warm up, however, the East...Read More

Rich Quick

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

First Division

First Division ft. Roc Marciano - Grown Ups

When I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to be an adult, but now that I am a big boy, I wish I could turn back the clock. Bills, rent, responsibilities... Grown Ups don't have it as easy as I thought. In fact, about the...Read More

Flex The Antihero

Flex The Antihero - The Becoming

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Still coasting on some good Vibrations, Alex Wiley returns to our pages to declare that all the fake money and drug talk flooding hip-hop is officially Ova. Featuring a blunted beat from Odd Couple and some typically original...Read More

Skyzoo x Torae

Skyzoo x Torae ft. Sean Price & Guilty Simpson - All In Together

Beef is entertaining, to be sure, but there are few things more beautiful than seeing two or more talented emcees check their egos long enough to go All In Together on a joint project. Skyzoo and Torae's forthcoming set is...Read More
13
Buckshot

Buckshot x P-Money ft. Joey Bada$$ & CJ Fly - Flute

The lead single off Brooklyn emcee Buckshot and beatsmith P-Money's forthcoming collaborative album may be named after one of the, shall we say, less intimidating instruments in the musical arsenal, but don't be fooled; Flute...Read More

GoldLink

GoldLink - Sober Thoughts

On an Email attached to this record, GoldLink writes, "Been thinkin bout gettin this tatt all on my face, who gives a f**k nobody get to me see anyway." Ironic because the title of this song is "Sober Thoughts," and the...Read More

Emilio Rojas

Emilio Rojas ft. Joe Budden - B*tch Is Crazy

Of all the rappers in the industry, I can't think of two more prone to relationship problems than Emilio Rojas and Joe Budden. So it's oddly appropriate that those very rhymesayers have ended up collaborating on a joint...Read More

Bop Alloy

Bop Alloy ft. Steph, The Sapphic Songstress - Not 4 Show

Some hip-hop artists treat the microphone (or turntables, or mixing boards) like a fashion accessory, and spend more time perfecting their outfits than honing their craft. Bop Alloy? To quote the chorus of the underground...Read More

Vic Mensa

Vic Mensa - Down On My Luck

With hundreds of new genres being birthed daily in someone's studio bedroom, it's tough to figure out which ones are worth following. For today, why not let Vic Mensa set the tone? On his new progressive single, Down On My...Read More

King Mez

King Mez - Can't Let Go

Though King Mez's latest street album, Long Live the King, dropped back in April, we still don't have any visuals for the highly-acclaimed set. Today, the First in Flight State spitter rectifies that oversight, coming...Read More

Sonny Shotz

Sonny Shotz ft. OnCue - Lisa

Next week, Boston spitter Sonny Shotz is set to liberate the follow-up to Danel Exodus, his March solo debut. (Yes, the man works fast.) Whereas the aforementioned set was gritty and jam-packed with heavy spiritual themes,...Read More
