AudioDax

#3 - AudioDax - Make Noise

Krypton Flo and Temble of AudioDax never struck me as the type to get in trouble for blasting their tunes too loudly, but perhaps my initial judgment wasn't quite accurate. Though the Midwesterners' latest promo single, Make...Read More

Emilio Rojas

#4 - Emilio Rojas ft. Laura Reed & Voodoo - Champion

Quick, name an emcee who’s been killing every new song he touches. Hmmm…I’d have to go with Emilio Rojas, I’m still trying to catch my breath after hearing his work on the Hold You Down Remix. Ok, now name a producer...Read More

Obie Trice

#9 - Obie Trice - Anymore

Hippopotamus Funk

#11 - Hippopotamus Funk ft. Skit & Righta - The Funky Basement

I can’t believe that today Lil Wayne gets out of jail and the first thing we hear from him is this new track! Just kidding. I figured an intro like that would grab the attention of those just skimming DJBooth’s pages –...Read More

Joell Ortiz

#12 - Joell Ortiz ft. Iffy - Ooh

Through good times and bad, Joell Ortiz has always come through with the kind of tunes that make listeners go “Ooh” – whether it's the pleasantly surprised “Ooh!” a junk food fiend makes upon noticing there's still...Read More

Zion I

#13 - Zion I ft. Locksmith & Macklemore - Polarity

John Public

#16 - John Public - Freedom People

November 11, aka Veterans Day, is a time to celebrate those who served, and in many cases sacrificed their lives to keep the U.S. safe. While we're honoring the troops, though, it's important to remember that patriotism is as...Read More

REKS

#17 - REKS - Pray for You (The Homicide Note)
