Jeff Chery

#1 - Jeff Chery ft. L Jaye - Gotta Make It [Premiere]

Royce Da 5'9

#2 - Royce Da 5'9" ft. Big Sean - My Own Planet

Released back in October '09, Royce Da 5'9”'s long-delayed Street Hop LP received high praise from reviewers in the Booth and beyond, but didn't seem to get the large-scale attention (and sales) it deserved. To rectify that...Read More

Jarren Benton

#3 - Jarren Benton ft. Laws - World Is Mine [Premiere]

Whose world is it? While Illmatic fanatics may be under the impression that it's theirs, Jarren Benton has a very different take on the matter. On his latest mixtape leak (another exclusive world premiere!), the ATL native...Read More

K. Sparks

#4 - K. Sparks ft. Gripz, Beyond Belief, Logics (of ArtOfficial) & Jabee - Blue Swing (Remix)

If there's one thing better than taking a stroll to your local park and hopping on a swing on a sunny afternoon, it's heading to the playground with a couple good friends to relive your respective childhoods and/or hold...Read More

Epsilon Project

#5 - Epsilon Project - Inspiration

It goes without saying that anyone hoping to make a living through music, art, writing or any creative craft must have a steady source of Inspiration. While I find that a few (dozen) cups of black coffee rarely fail to get...Read More

Mike Schpitz

#6 - 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

C-Murder

#7 - C-Murder ft. B Steezy - Tomorrow

On his last feature, Life I Live, C-Murder painted a bleak portrait of his day-to-day existence in Louisiana's Angola Prison, where he is serving a life sentence for second-degree murder. Despite the present darkness,...Read More

Xzibit

#8 - Xzibit ft. Kurupt & 40 Glocc - Phenom

A blue moon, a total eclipse, the sighting of a black swan, all rare and noteworthy events. But the return of veteran emcee Xzibit to rap after four years spent pimping rides, acting and being the butt of countless "Yo Dawg"...Read More

Jon Hope

#9 - Jon Hope - Which One

It's been quite a while since last we heard from Jon Hope (eight months and 23 days, to be exact). If you've been um, hoping to hear more from the Rhode Island native (and exclusive freestyle series alumnus), your wish has...Read More

¡MAYDAY!

#10 - ¡MAYDAY! - Stuck on an Island

Damn. I wasn’t able to finish Lost last night, so I won’t be able to give you the five-star blurb filled with deep thoughts that I wanted to for this one (if only I had a steering wheel at the bottom of a well I could use...Read More

Shane Eli

#11 - 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

FreeSol

#12 - FreeSol ft. Adam Tensta - No 1 Can Stop Me

If, after hearing the Memphis ensemble flip classic cuts from such eclectic sources as the Doors and the Smashing Pumpkins into fresh, innovative hip-hop records, you still don't believe that FreeSol are going places, then...Read More

Donny Goines

#13 - Donny Goines ft. Asher Roth, Mistah Fab & Big Pooh - Rock NYC (Remix)

Poor New York City. No one ever pays the Big Apple any attention, and the city that never sleeps certainly doesn’t have any anthems it can be proud of. (That was sarcastic, and yes, I’m from Boston.) Apparently not...Read More

Young Scolla

#14 - 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

Grip Plyaz

#15 - Grip Plyaz ft. Aleon Craft - Step Out

Every city has a different feel, and no one can better express that feeling musically than natives of that particular town. So when two of Atlanta’s finest, Grip Plyaz and Aleon Craft, linked up for a song called Step Out,...Read More

Young Cash

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

Co$$ (aka Ca$hus King)

#17 - Co$$ ft. REKS & Naledge (of Kidz In The Hall) - Now Til Infinity

The life of a hip-hop hopeful isn't easy, especially when you take your craft as seriously as Show Sum emcee Co$$. Regardless of how tough the going gets, however, the Los Angeles native is determined to stay on his hustle...Read More

Yonas

#18 - 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

Phil Adé

#19 - 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
