Joell Ortiz

Joell Ortiz ft. Novel - Night Train

Mellow and harmonious singing dance in the background. The band is playing together in a dimly lit hole in the wall while cigar smoke drifts to the ceiling. If I could direct Joell Ortiz’ video for Night Train, that’s...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks ft. Laëtitia Dana - Velvet Thoughts (Sutphin)

Soft, gentle, commodious, fluid, peaceful, soothing, placid, serene... Sorry, just browsing my thesaurus, since I figured I'd need a few synonyms for “smooth” in order to describe K. Sparks' latest offering without...Read More

Rockie Fresh

Rockie Fresh - What's the Hurry

If patience is a virtue, then hip-hop hopefuls who put in years on the grind for the mere possibility of a shot at the big league must be saints... or lunatics. No pun intended. While first-time featuree Rockie Fresh is still...Read More

Thee Tom Hardy

Thee Tom Hardy ft. Skyzoo - A Different League

AudioDax

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

iLLA

iLLA - Better

Did you dig How Did This Happen?, the Booth-sponsored debut set by Portland duo Moxie Black? Then you Better not sleep on the latest solo project from iLLA, the vocal half of the rapper/producer duo. The first leak off the...Read More

Hippopotamus Funk

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

I-20

I-20 - Bury Me

No, it isn't April Fools' Day, and we didn't deliberately mix up the mp3s to trick Boothgoers into listening to country music. (Though, now that I think about it, that would have been hilarious.) The snippet of Marc Collie's...Read More

Joe Budden

Joe Budden ft. Lloyd Banks, Fabolous & Royce Da 5'9" - Remember the Titans

While the South may have have a nice run, thanks to vets like Slaughterhouse, Fabolous, and Banks, the North is definitely trying to take back the hip hop game. Leading the charge is Joe Budden, who with the help of Royce Da...Read More

OverDoz

Overdoz - December

Believe it or not, being a paragon of coolness has its drawbacks... for example, not being able to bang out a DJBooth track review without five different shawtys blowing up your cellular. In fact, here's one right now! (“Hi...Read More

Dee-1

Dee-1 - Jay, 50 and Weezy

Sigmund Freud (in)famously stated that every dream represents the fulfillment of a wish. While I'm sure we all could think of counter-examples to that theory, the dream Booth newcomer Dee-1 describes on new single Jay, 50 and...Read More

JFK

J.F.K ft. Mac Miller - 17

“When I was 17, it was a very good year.” Though the Sinatra cut from which that opening line originated is an indisputable classic, I'm gonna have to stand alongside Boston up-and-comer/first-time featuree J.F.K. in...Read More
