Chance the Rapper

#1 - Chance The Rapper ft. Childish Gambino - Favorite Song

Though giving the project a spin is high on my agenda, I have to confess that I haven't had the opportunity to sit down and listen to Chance the Rapper's new mixtape all the way through, much less select a Favorite Song....Read More

Mac Miller

#2 - 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

Ju' Malone

#3 - Julian Malone - Tokyo

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

Lil Dicky

#4 - Lil Dicky - White Dude

With the specter of Vanilla Ice still looming over the rap game, most white rappers aren't eager to make their melanin deficiency a subject of their rhymes. But you won't find any shame in Lil Dicky's game. On his latest...Read More

Spose

#5 - Spose - I'm Starving

If I had a nickel for every rapper who claimed to be hungry, I would have enough to buy red toilet paper and titanium straws, Beyoncé-style. Spose, however, is way past hungry; on his latest Booth feature, he informs us,...Read More

Nipsey Hussle

#6 - Nipsey Hussle - Smoking With My Stylist

Are you following Nipsey Hussle on Twitter? Well, you should be; not only will you be better-informed on the Los Angeles spitter's doings, but you'll be doing your part to accelerate the release of new music. Yesterday,...Read More

Brothers From Another

#7 - Brothers From Another ft. Asher Roth - Groov

When you've been absent from our pages for more than a year, you've gotta make a suitably grand re-entrance in order to recapture readers' attention. And what could be grander than the exclusive world premiere of a new...Read More

Mike Stud

#8 - Mike Stud - Young King

The title of Mike Stud’s latest effort, Young King, might leave a bad taste in the mouths of Game of Thrones fans, as King Joffrey, also a young king, is one of the most deplorable characters on television. With his RELIEF...Read More

Sir Michael Rocks

#9 - Sir Michael Rocks ft. Ab-Soul & Dash - In a Minute

Sir Michael Rocks has a new solo LP, Banco, dropping In a Minute. And by “a minute” I mean “a period of indeterminate length,” since the set is currently unscheduled. Realizing that timeframe might not be entirely...Read More

Gerald Walker

#10 - Gerald Walker ft. Cardo - The Inspiration

You've gotta respect Gerald Walker's hustle. And when I say “gotta,” I'm not just speaking rhetorically; if you don't show the proper respect, the Milwaukee representative's going to hunt you down and force you to...Read More

Lecrae

#11 - Lecrae ft. B.o.B - Round of Applause

Previously featured as a guest on cuts by Saigon (Best Thing That I Found) and Statik Selektah (Live & Let Live), Grammy-winning Christian rap artist Lecrae steps into the solo Booth spotlight with a freshly-minted, non-album...Read More

Hoodie Allen

#12 - Hoodie Allen ft. Kina Grannis - Make It Home

Last month, Fuse TV brought Empire State rapper Hoodie Allen together with singer/songwriter Kira Grannis to write a record within 24 hours and debut it in front of a live audience. The finished product, Make It Home, turned...Read More

SkyBlew

#13 - SkyBlew - Sun to Moon, Wow

While it may vary from time to time, the distance between the sun and moon is about 150 million kilometers, which is equal to 93,205,678 miles. I'm not good enough at math to calculate how long it would take to travel said...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

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

When we first featured Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Can't Hold Us, back in August of 2011, the Seattle duo were just a minuscule blip on the national radar. Three years later, with a Billboard number one hit under their belts...Read More

The Procussions

#15 - The Procussions - Moon and Back

Got a spare thousand bucks? Then call up a financial adviser and open an IRA—you can thank me in 45 years or so. If you've already done that and still have a cool $1,000 burning a hole in your pocket, that money can...Read More

Tuki Carter

#16 - 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

Psalm One

#17 - Psalm One x Panik - Queen Until

Today is a very regal day in The DJBooth: first Mike Stud brought us Young King, and now beatsmith Panik has teamed up with Windy City emcee Psalm One to bring us Queen Until. Panik cooks up crisp production powered by airy...Read More

Derek Wise

#18 - Derek Wise - CLAYCO

Not glimpsed on our pages since dropping off the official visuals for LP inclusion The $uits back in October, North-of-the-Border buzzmaker Derek Wise reintroduces himself to the Booth with the lead single off his next street...Read More

Jared Evan

#19 - Jared Evan - The Devil Wears Prada

Lately, it seems that Booth fave Jared Evan's been neck-deep in femmes fatales. On the last single off his collaborative set with Statik Selektah, the unsigned singer, songwriter, producer and emcee had fallen in lust with a...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

#20 - ¡MAYDAY! - Shots Fired

Everybody hit the ground—we've received reports of Shots Fired in The DJBooth. The perpetrators: a sextet of young Miami natives bearing an uncanny resemblance to Booth-acclaimed hip-hop crew ¡MAYDAY!. In fact, I'm pretty...Read More

Rabbi Darkside

#21 - Rabbi Darkside - True Lies

Realness, thy name is Rabbi Darkside. On new single True Lies, his first DJBooth feature, the Brooklyn-based rapper, DJ and hip-hop educator (who, in the interest of keeping it real, is not an actual rabbi) shares a few...Read More

REKS

#22 - REKS - Flags

As those who have been paying attention to the political subtext (and, often, straight-up text) of his bars already know, REKS is the last emcee one would expect to see standing before Old Glory with his hand over his heart....Read More

King Mez

#23 - King Mez - Exordium

In classical rhetoric, the Latin word “Exordium" (literally “beginning”) refers to the introductory part of an oration, in which the speaker lays the foundation for the argument to come. While King Mez' latest feature...Read More
