e-dubble - The Cause

Taylor Bennett

Taylor Bennett ft. King L - New Chevy

Taylor Bennett may be Chance The Rapper's brother, but, at least for me, I don't see him that way; I actually knew about him before I did Chance. Besides can't he just be his own man? I suspect he could be brothers with the...Read More

Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne ft. Ryan Bradley - Over It

I had the chance to see Tech N9ne perform live last week, and I'm still not Over It. Sure my legs are still sore, my ears still ringing and I've yet to take off my face paint (much to the chagrin of my grandma), but I still...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

G-Eazy

G-Eazy ft. Devon Baldwin - Let's Get Lost

I've never been on tour with a rap sensation like G-Eazy, but I can imagine that there are a lot of one night stands along the way. As the Oakland emcee/producer prepares for the start of his These Things Happen Europe Tour,...Read More

SALVA

SALVA ft. Kurupt, ScHoolboy Q, Problem & Bad Lucc - Drop That B*tch

Although the Sons of N.W.A. may be touring and putting out music (yes, the group includes the actual sons of Dr. Dre and Eazy-E), it doesn't mean that other West Coast emcees can't rework some of the group's classics....Read More

¡MAYDAY!

¡MAYDAY! x MURS as ¡MURSDAY! - TABLETOPS

You could always tell which middle school kids would still be into Hip-Hop 10 or 20 years later. If you saw a kid beatbox, use pens on the desk like drumsticks, or pound hands on the gym floor, someone who could dance or rap...Read More

IshDARR

IshDARR ft. Karina - POPS

Labels, be aware. IshDARR, a 17-year-old emcee from Milwaukee, will not sign a contract unless it meets his standards. With his first Booth feature for his single, POPS, I have a feeling that it's going to be worth it....Read More

Cane

Cane - Get Down

Statik Selektah is one of the rap game's most authentic producers; he also recently took part in our Behind The Board series. So, when I see his name attached to a project, I can definitely Get Down with it. Though he is...Read More

Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne ft. Krizz Kaliko & Stevie Stone - Nobody Cares

Like all of us, Tech N9ne sometimes gets down on himself and begins to feel like Nobody Cares. Then he remembers that he's the most successful independent rapper of all time, and the founder of a thriving record label. The...Read More

Rich Quick

Rich Quick - Real Rugged Raw

Real, Rugged and Raw—three adjectives that almost always bode well, when applied to a hip-hop record. Rich Quick's latest feature, of course, is no exception to that rule. Making its world premiere right here on our front...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

Con

Con - Period.

In my completely unbiased opinion, hip-hop is the f**kin' best. Period. I could pick a 2Pac song or Kanye verse to prove my point, but why do that when Con makes a strong enough case on his own? The fact that this Booth...Read More

Jez Dior ft. G-Eazy - Old No. 7

Luke Christopher

Luke Christopher - Life Jackets

Every relationship you enter into should be treated as a complete fresh start that demands attention and patience. As most would admit, however, you can't help if a past relationship influences how you approach a new...Read More

Emilio Rojas

Emilio Rojas ft. N.O.R.E. - Trouble

These days, a lot of the younger cats think that they have a lot to say and resort to a quicker flow to fit it all in one bar. Well, New York's Emilio Rojas is here today to teach those cats that there's another school of...Read More

Freddie Gibbs

Freddie Gibbs & The World's Freshest - G Like That

If the Founding Fathers of all that is funky created a committee to write the G Handbook, Freddie Gibbs would have to be an honorary member. But just to be safe, for Exhibit A of evidence of his keeping it real, we have his...Read More

Locksmith

Locksmith ft. Rebecca Nobel - Who I Am

You could say that Locksmith has been fighting since birth. Whether it was almost being given to the wrong woman in the hospital due to an insensitive doctor or second guessing his resolve to stay true to his craft, the Cali...Read More

SonReal - Preach

Update: The Dane Collison-directed visuals for SonReal's Preach single have been added. On the days that SonReal has nothing to say, he wouldn't waste your time by opening his mouth. So when he does speak, you listen. On a...Read More

Sango x GoldLink - Wassup

It was just two weeks ago that GoldLink unleashed his latest mixtape, The God Complex, but the DMV buzzmaker's already started to miss the Booth. Thus, he's returned to say “Wassup,” with a brand new promo single in tow....Read More
