Joey Fatts
Joey Fatts may be a new face in the Booth but, assuming that birds of a feather flock together, a glance at the feature lineup on Choppa should be enough to turn your average Booth reader into a fan....Read More

Chance the Rapper
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...Read More

Ab-Soul
Ab-Soul has seen the future, and it ain't looking too bright... for sucker emcees, anyway. On new promo single The End Is Near, the TDE solider informs his competition that they aren't long for this...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis
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...Read More

Tory Lanez
In this day and age, it seems as though hating is a full-time job. Some haters like to go all Chappelle's Show (Player Haters Ball) with it, taking pride in knocking someone else’s success. Haters...Read More

Casey Veggies
Casey Veggies and Juicy J don’t seem like two peas in a pod to me. Veggies seems like the kind of guy who would rather roll up a few with some good friends than hit the club, which is where Juicy J...Read More

Reckonize Real
If real recognize real, then the real among our readers are sure to recognize Reckonize Real. Based on his latest record, I reckon Reckonize Real is as real as they come. Tongue-twisters aside, I...Read More

Wally Left
At 24, I think I am starting to (finally) become an adult. How do I know? When I see kids who are in their late teens, I actually think they are young. I got this same feeling after I found out...Read More

Rittz
If it feels like only yesterday Rittz stepped into the Booth with the Mike Posner-assisted Switch Lanes, well, that's because it was yesterday. But, considering the level of acclaim the Strange Music...Read More

Tuki Carter
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...Read More

Rittz
For Real, the reader-acclaimed lead single off Rittz' Strange Music debut album, found him departing from his trademark confessional bars to (in the words of one Richard) “[wild] the f*ck out over a...Read More

Run The Jewels
Did R.A.P. Music, Killer Mike's 2012 full-length with El-P, leave you hungry for more? Then you'll be happy to hear that, not only do the twosome have another project in the works, but they've taken...Read More

R.A. The Rugged Man
When you think about classical performers like Mozart, an artist like R.A. The Rugged Man probably does not come to mind. His grimy persona and even grimier flow wouldn't go over well in Mozart’s...Read More

Phil Adé
They say nothing good happens after midnight but, from the sound of Phil Adé’s latest feature, 2AM seems to be a time of peak productivity for the DMV emcee. On ode to post-party/club shenanigans,...Read More

A-1
For many, the word “summer” evokes pleasant images of bright sunshine, long, lazy days and outings to the beach. In neighborhoods plagued by gun violence, however, the correlation between rising...Read More

Bas
Upon Googling Clams Casino, the New Jersey producer behind Bas' latest Booth feature, I discovered that "Clams Casino" is also a savory dish wherein the crustacean is baked with bacon. While his name...Read More

Revalation
When I hear the saying “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours,” I usually think of shady business, like politicians making backroom deals or a cop taking a bribe. However, not all...Read More

Jeff Chery
For most emcees, holding down one city is responsibility enough. Jeff Chery, on the other hand, has taken it upon himself to rep not one, but three 'hoods—four, if you count his birthplace. On his...Read More
