Mike WiLL Made It

#1 - Mike WiLL Made It ft. Migos & Wiz Khalifa - Whippin a Brick

Last week, superproducer Mike WiLL Made It announced plans for his fourth solo mixtape, #MikeWiLLBeenTriLL. What can fans expect from the forthcoming set? Two words: polka medleys. Nah, just kidding; if freshly-minted lead...Read More

Trae The Truth

#2 - Trae Tha Truth ft. Diddy, Jeezy & T.I. - Hold Up

Think you can just walk up to Trae Tha Truth and start talking his ear off? Hold Up! As an eminent personage in the hip-hop game, he demands to be approached with a certain level of respect—and that goes for dime pieces as...Read More

Drake

#3 - Drake - Worst Behavior

Drake may be on his Worst Behavior, but he's certainly putting his best foot forward on the visual tip. Though previous singles Started From the Bottom and Hold On, We're Going Home spawned some epic, out-the-box videos, the...Read More

2 Chainz

#4 - 2 Chainz - Used 2

Surprisingly little has been written regarding the effects of celebrity on sexual performance, but it's not inconceivable that a steady supply of willing groupies could lead to laziness in the bedroom. But that certainly...Read More

Rick Ross

#5 - Rick Ross ft. Future - No Games

Like many emcees, Rick Ross occasionally refers to his business as the rap game. In the Maybach Music Group capo's case, however, that expression is a bit misleading; as he emphasizes on the freshly-released lead single off...Read More

Kid Ink

#6 - Kid Ink ft. Eric Bellinger - Just Do It

Can't decide whether to hit play on Kid Ink's latest promo single? My advice is to make like Nike and “Just Do It.” On this club-ready cut, a loosie unattached to his forthcoming RCA Records debut, the Los Angeles...Read More

Maybach Music Group

#7 - Maybach Music Group ft. Rick Ross, French Montana, Meek Mill & Diddy - Bout That Life

Being admitted into the Maybach Music Group family isn't just a matter of being able to rap. You've also gotta be Bout That Life. Not sure whether you fit the bill? Simply ride with Rick Ross and his clique for a night; if...Read More

J. Cole

#8 - J. Cole ft. Amber Coffman & The Cults - She Knows

One of the overarching themes of J. Cole's blockbuster sophomore set is the artist's less-than-sterling track record where fidelity is concerned. On She Knows, the project's fourth official single, the First in Flight State...Read More

Timbaland

#9 - Timbaland ft. Drake, Jay Z & James Fauntleroy - Know Bout Me

Believe it or not, but its been four years since Timbaland released Shock Value II, his last full-length album. When he isn't in the studio creating hits for Jay Z, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke, however, he has been...Read More

King Chip

#10 - King Chip ft. Pusha T & Kid Cudi - Vortex

As someone who listens to rap music on a daily basis, I'm more or less desensitized to awkward, creepy and/or bizarre pickup lines. At least I thought I was, until I heard Kid CuDi tell a woman, “I want to live in your...Read More

Jeezy

#11 - Young Jeezy - Foul Play

This next song is dedicated to the Ndamukong Suh's and Rasheed Wallace's of the world. Those who feel the need to get aggressive and downright dirty (similar to our examples) are advised to keep Young Jeezy’s Foul Play on...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#12 - Wiz Khalifa - Look What I Got On

Last week, Wiz Khalifa threw open the windows to his soul and invited listeners to take a look on potential LP inclusion Look Into My Eyes. Now that we've gazed deeply into his psyche, noting the stress and strain beneath his...Read More

Lil Wayne

#13 - Lil Wayne ft. Chance the Rapper - You Song

Have You copped Lil Wayne's latest mixtape yet? To keep it one-hundred, I haven't. After being burned by the YMCMB heavyweight's last couple projects, I didn't want to tarnish my Labor Day with another potentially subpar set....Read More

Bun B

#14 - Bun B ft. Kirko Bangz - Triller

The hip-hop game is home to many a trill motherf**ker, but ain't nobody Triller than Bun B. Coming on the heels of late October's eminently fly Eagles, this freshly-minted street single finds the H-Town veteran touting his...Read More

B.o.B

#15 - B.o.B - All I Want

Hold up—ain't B.o.B the guy who told us to “forget about the price tag,” because “it ain't about the cha-ching, cha-ching?” Indeed he is. But according to Article 5, Section 8 of the Hip-Hop Constitution (also known...Read More

A$AP Rocky

#16 - ASAP Rocky ft. A$ton Matthews & Joey Fatts - R. Cali

Thus far, I've managed to restrain myself from copping Grand Theft Auto V. I'm gonna play it, no doubt, but right now I don't have 60 bucks and 40-plus hours to burn. Now that it's begun to take over the Booth, however, I...Read More

Kid Ink

#17 - Kid Ink - My Own Lane

The music industry is quick to place artists in a box, or “lane” as the kids say, so that they be easily classified and understood. Kid Ink has a lane but, as he explains, it is “My Own Lane,” and it offers sufficient...Read More

Eminem

#18 - Eminem - Survival

It takes a lot of skill, backing, preparation, money and luck to survive in the rap game. One minute you're on top and the next you're working behind the counter at Burger King. As a 17-year-veteran of the music industry,...Read More

Snoop Dogg

#19 - Snoop Dogg - Bad 4 Me

Someone—probably a teacher or my grandma—once told me that rap music was not good for me, and would only melt my brain. Well if loving cuts like Snoop Dogg's latest feature is Bad 4 Me, I don’t want to be healthy....Read More

Yo Gotti

#20 - Yo Gotti ft. Meek Mill - F-U

Can't stand Yo Gotti? Think his music sucks? Well, he asked me to pass along this brief message: “F-U.” On his latest street single, the updated version of a cut featured on DJ Whoo Kid's N Word Bond compilation, the...Read More

Next Up


Lupe Fiasco

#21 - Lupe Fiasco ft. Ed Sheeran - Old School Love

In recent months, we've heard a rejuvenated Lupe Fiasco showcase the cerebral side of his rhyme style in aggressive, tightly-wound jams like SLR 2 and Peace of Paper / Cup of Jayzus. So fans might be a little surprised to...Read More

T.I.

#22 - T.I. - The Way We Ride

In your average city, you can get away with rolling down the street in a beat-up bucket. In A-Town, that sh*t' simply ain't gonna fly. On newly-selected single The Way We Ride, Hustle Gang head honcho T.I. fills outsiders in...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

#23 - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis - White Walls

Given that Macklemore made a name (and a fortune) for himself by choosing quirky Thrift Shop clothes over designer brands, you'd expect the Seattle representative to make a similarly classic, economical selection when...Read More
