Hold Up... you don't listen to Cory Mo? Either you're allergic to high-quality Southern hip-hop, or you just don't know what you're missing. In the latter case, a listen to the Lone Star State rapper/beatsmith's latest single...Read More

Chuck Inglish

#3 - Chuck Inglish ft. Mac Miller & Ab-Soul - Came Thru / Easily

Rich Quick

#4 - Rich Quick ft. Rakka Iriscience & Reef The Lost Cauze - Travelin' Man (STREECE Remix)

Since this is his DJBooth debut, you can’t blame me for not knowing much about Rich Quick. All I (and you) need to know is that Quick has a co-sign from the legendary Tim Armstrong of Rancid and The Transplants; that makes...Read More

Dust

#7 - Dust - Playing God

If there's one thing classic sci-fi movies have taught me, it's that nothing good can come from humans Playing God. Dust's latest feature, however, has forced me to reconsider that received notion. On this upbeat, irreverent...Read More

Dom Kennedy

#8 - Dom Kennedy - Dominic

Dom Kennedy’s forthcoming album was originally scheduled for release on October 1, but after a slight delay is scheduled for liftoff on October 15. While most artists wouldn't bat an eye, Dom has decided to tide over his...Read More

OnCue

#9 - OnCue - Way Too Far

Don’t get me wrong; I am all for free music, but I also believe that if an artist inspires you, you should reward their hard work with your hard-earned dollars. Keep that in mind when you listen to Way Too Far, the latest...Read More

Miami Beat Wave

#10 - Miami Beat Wave, ¡MAYDAY! & ArtOfficial - WATTUP!

In this day and age, it's rare to have the kind of Neighbors who'll drop by unannounced with a fruit basket or homemade cookies, just to make you feel welcome. Miami Beat Wave, ¡MAYDAY! and ArtOfficial, however, are all...Read More

Jinx

#12 - JINX - Alive

After two years with nary a feature from JINX, I was starting to worry that he'd tumbled into an open manhole or fallen victim to some comparable accident. Hey, his name is synonymous with bad luck. I'm happy to announce,...Read More

Danny Brown

#13 - Danny Brown ft. ScHoolboy Q - Dope Fiend Rental

I know what you're thinking: “Drug addicts are dangerous, unpredictable, and not all that fun to be around. Who the f**k would want to buy or lease one?” Luckily for Danny Brown, he isn't actually going into the Dope...Read More

Blu

#14 - Blu & Nottz ft. Rashad - End of the World

Over the centuries, countless artists, philosophers and theologians have shared their visions of the End of the World. As far as I know, though, the apocalypse has never sounded quite as smooth as it does on the latest single...Read More

Rapsody

#15 - Rapsody ft. Chance The Rapper & Big K.R.I.T. - Lonely Thoughts

As is evident from the often introspective content of her bars, Rapsody doesn't mind spending time alone with her thoughts. Like all of us, though, she does crave company from time to time. On a new single off her latest...Read More

Luke Christopher

#16 - Luke Christopher - The Alphabet

Back in 2005, Papoose broke into the rap game with Alphabetical Slaughter, an acclaimed joint which featured the East Coast emcee delivering alliterative bars based on every letter from A to Z. Fast-forward eight years, and...Read More

Thurz

#17 - Thurz - Punky Brewster

I don't know what I expected from a joint named after mid-'80s sitcom Punky Brewster, but it definitely didn't involve a Jamaican patois. In fact, THURZ's new single has nothing to do with the show or its precocious...Read More

Termanology

#18 - Termanology ft. Action Bronson & Jared Evan - Take My Turn

After countless hours of hustle and preparation, it's finally Termanology's time to shine—and the Boston rhymesayer ain't about to let the moment pass him by. Fresh off the release of his sixth independent full-length, the...Read More

When you think of great hip-hop couples, who comes to mind? Beyoncé and Jay Z (duh), Alicia and Swizz, but what about Numonics and Koncept? OK, so they aren’t dating, but Numonics's production chops and Koncept’s...Read More
