Joe Budden

#1 - Joe Budden ft. Lil Wayne & Tank - She Don't Put It Down Like You

Ludacris

#2 - Ludacris ft. Kelly Rowland - Representin

UPDATE: Click "Watch Video" for the brand new visuals to Representin. Mobile users scroll down. Though Ludacris' last album, Battle of the Sexes, had male-female relations (sexual and otherwise) as its theme, it would be a...Read More

DJ Drama

#3 - DJ Drama ft. Wale, Tyga, & Roscoe Dash - So Many Girls

I'm no mind-reader, but something tells me that having So Many Girls might not necessarily be a problem for the hip-hop quartet that is DJ Drama, Wale, Tyga, and Roscoe Dash. On Girls, which is a stand out selection and...Read More

Kid CuDi

DJ Khaled

#5 - DJ Khaled ft. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood & Jadakiss - I Did It For My Dawgz

I'll be honest, “What makes DJ Khaled tick?” isn't a question that crossed my mind before today. I assumed dude simply enjoyed shouting “We the Best!” over 808 beats and getting paid for it—who wouldn't? As it turns...Read More

Big Sean

#6 - Big Sean ft. J. Cole - 24K of Gold

Now that Big Sean's brand spanking new Detroit mixtape has had a little time to soak in everyone's ears, it should come as no surprise that there's quite a few cuts off the project that are receiving a hefty amount of...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#7 - Wiz Khalifa ft. Project Pat - Still Got It

With material featuring Three 6 Mafia founding member Juicy J and now Memphis icon Project Pat, I really wouldn't be surprised if Wiz Khalifa became the honorary third member of Three 6 Mafia or an equally iconic Southern...Read More

Kid CuDi

#8 - Kid Cudi - King Wizard

Last night, Kid CuDi Tweeted verbatim: “mark my words, INDICUD will be the greatest album ever made. Know that I'm not lying.” As unbelievable as the claim might seem, we can't dismiss the possibility out of hand--Just...Read More

Kendrick Lamar

#9 - Kendrick Lamar ft. Young Jeezy - Westside, Right On Time

I've got to say, I wish every week could be #TDEFamAppreciationWeek. In the past few days we've gotten new dopeness from the likes of Jay Rock (Yola), Ab-Soul (Nibiru) and ScHoolBoy Q (Party), and guess who just showed up to...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#10 - Wiz Khalifa ft. Young Jeezy & Lil Wayne - Work Hard Play Hard (Remix)

Though Booth readers are always ready to offer sharp critiques of mainstream singles, Wiz Khalifa's Work Hard Play Hard, with its anthemic chorus, helium-voiced sample and self-congratulatory verses, was praised by our...Read More

Ace Hood

#11 - Ace Hood ft. Trey Songz - I Need Your Love

Balling just ain't the same without a special someone with whom to share the fruits of your hustle. Thus, on single numero uno off his fourth full-length, Ace Hood makes a play for the heart of a potential Mrs. Hood, telling...Read More

Xzibit

#12 - Xzibit ft. Wiz Khalifa - Forever a G

Xzibit's been a gangster since his formative years in the Motown streets, and he will continue to be such till the day that he dies. On Forever a G, a freshly-released standout off his soon-to-be-released seventh album, the...Read More

2 Chainz

#13 - 2 Chainz ft. Kanye West - Birthday Song

In just over a year 2 Chainz has gone from "that guy who used to be in Playaz Circle" to one of the game's hottest (and most guest featurable) rappers. So with the release of his Def Jam solo debut, Senor Dos Chainz has...Read More

B.o.B

#14 - B.o.B ft. Nicki Minaj - Out Of My Mind

B.o.B. is a man just as capable of crooning an acoustic guitar ballad as he is rhyming hard next to Playboy Tre. So it only makes sense that after previous single Both Of Us, featuring pop princess Taylor Swift, Bobby Ray has...Read More

Wale

#15 - Wale - The Arrivial

After spending time with So Many Girls thanks to DJ Drama and friends earlier in the week, Maybach Music Group's most eloquent lyricist mellows things out just in time for the weekend on his new record The Arrival. Wale...Read More

Killer Mike

#16 - Killer Mike - Reagan

By materially supporting the Nicaraguan Contras, who contributed to the crack epidemic by shipping large quantities of cocaine into the country, and funneling domestic drug arrests into for-profit prisons, the Reagan...Read More

Tyga

#17 - Tyga ft. Game - Switch Lanes

After diving head first into the music scene less than 6 years ago, Young Money's Rack City-residing golden boy Tyga has surely lived it up in the fast lane; so why would he want to Switch Lanes? The tatted-up emcee does just...Read More

MGK (Machine Gun Kelly)

#18 - MGK ft. Alex Fitts - Stereo

From getting arrested during a flash mob at his local mall to spitting vodka into a fan's mouth I think it's safe to say that Cleveland rapper MGK has earned himself the unofficial title of Bad Boy's resident bad boy. Despite...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#19 - Lupe Fiasco - Lamborghini Angels

Hopefully there will be no sample drama this time around and we can just focus on the music. For the second single off his upcoming Food & Liquor II album, Lupe Fiasco has chosen Lamborghini Angels, a thoroughly hypnotic...Read More

Pusha T

#20 - Pusha T ft. Future - Pain

What doesn't kill you may not, as Friedrich Nietzsche and Kelly Clarkson claimed, necessarily make you stronger, but it certainly seems to have worked out that way for Pusha T. After all the Virginia Beach mainstay's seen and...Read More
