Gods'Illa

#1 - Gods'Illa ft. Sean Price - Saviours & Punishers

I don't want to say they saved the best for last, but the latest release off Gods'Illa's new project at the very least is on par with previous releases like You Don't Have to Be a Star and Everybody. Bonus cut Saviours and...Read More

The Gooneez

#2 - The Gooneez & The Fratelleez ft. Kendrick Lamar - Too Strong

“HEY YOU GUYS!!!” Sorry, just thought I'd get the obligatory Goonies reference out of the way at the beginning, since it'd be a shame to undermine a poignant and insightful jam like The Gooneez' Booth debut with lame...Read More

Mac Miller

Neako

#5 - Neako ft. Wiz Khalifa - Scanners

Phonte

#7 - Phonte ft. Median - Eternally

Freddie Gibbs

#9 - Freddie Gibbs ft. Freeway & Adrian - Anything To Survive

Eligh

#10 - Eligh x Amp Live - Tattoo Song

For some people, body art is simply decoration--for Eligh and Amplive, it's a means of self-expression, as well as a profound experience of transcendence through pain. On new single Tattoo Song, the Zion I DJ/producer serves...Read More

El Prez

#11 - El Prez - Dedication

While many rappers are bragging about why they are the best around, displaying the cars, fame, jewels, big booty women and other materialistic items to prove it, El Prez has taken a different approach. On his new single,...Read More

Nikki Lynette

#12 - Nikki Lynette ft. Emilio Rojas - Walk Away (Remix)

Cory Mo

#13 - Cory Mo ft. UGK & David Banner - Ain't Nobody Trippin (Remix)

Who’s in the mood for a hip-hop history lesson? No one? Well too bad, it’s going down anyway. Way back in October of 2007 the legendary Pimp C had laid down some vocals on a remix to Cory Mo’s heavily buzzing Ain’t...Read More

Montage Øne

#14 - Montage Øne ft. Gold Chain Military - Black SpaceShips
