Yonas

Yonas - Pumped Up Kicks (Remix)

Released to little fanfare back in September of 2010, Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicks has slowly but surely grown into a crossover juggernaut. And it's not hard to see why: the pounding beat, instant-classic bassline and...Read More

Cory Mo

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

Freddie Gibbs

Freddie Gibbs ft. Freeway & Adrian - Anything To Survive

There aren’t many of us who can claim that we’ve been forced into a situation where we’ve had to do Anything To Survive – my childhood was more like Anything to Make it to Soccer Practice on Time – but Freddie...Read More

Neako

Neako ft. Wiz Khalifa - Scanners

We all know that Neako is a master at creating brooding, blunted bangers, but the man may have outdone himself with this one. The final release off his forthcoming street album, Scanners (No, I can't explain the title—maybe...Read More

Weapons of Audio

Weapons of Audio - Night Light

Call me square, but there's something beautiful about flipping on the Night Light and turning in early, secure in the knowledge that you'll wake up rested and ready to face whatever the day may throw at you. Not that Weapons...Read More

Phonte

Phonte ft. Median - Eternally

From will.i.am to Lil B, Royce Da 5’9 to King Mez, Phonte is nothing less than a chameleon when it comes to the work (and collaborators) he has amassed over the past few years. While fans of his work, the entirety of Little...Read More

The Freshmen

The Freshmen - Party Crashers

If you ask me, Party Crashers get an undeservedly bad rap; during my own freshman year at college, I spent some of my best times, and made quite a few good friends, at parties neither I nor anyone I was with (or even knew)...Read More

Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino - Bonfire

In just a few shorts months Childish Gambino (gov't name Donald Glover) has gone from “did you know that guy on Community raps?” to “Yo, that dude on Community can rap!” to “Childish Gambino is a rapper.” While...Read More

Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Willie Dynamite

My initial thoughts upon reading the title of Mac Miller's latest effort was: “Oh, he's come up with a nickname for his d*ck? Nah—that's just my third-grade sense of humor running away with me.” For once, however, I'm...Read More

RaSun

Rasun ft. Royce da 5'9" & The Jacka - My Enemies

Though RaSun hasn't dropped off a fresh solo feature since way back in January 2010, the San Fran buzzmaker previously had a dope formula established: mellow, pop-appealing beats, tuneful hooks and Caribbean-accented,...Read More

Blu

Blu ft. Sene - Avenge Of The Cheap

Contrary to Forrest Gump's assertion that “life is like a box of chocolates” (…because you never know what you're gonna get.), surprises and shakeups are more often than not separated by long stretches of the same-old,...Read More

Substantial

Substantial ft. Jsoul - Would You Be Mine?

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Make the Money

Sssshhhhh…..hear that? That’s the sound of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis slowly but surely building a hardcore fan base for their ceaselessly honest music. Ok, you don’t have to be quiet anymore. In fact, feel free to...Read More

Braille

Braille - Feel It

Where others would wait till they'd established a healthy Booth following before busting out their more avant-garde material, Braille is going straight for the experimental ish; instead of listening to this new single with...Read More

Smokey Robotic

Smokey Robotic ft. Redman - No Reality

In his famous Meditations, René Descartes pondered the possibility that the world around him could be nothing more than an illusion, created by a clever and deceitful demon. Unfortunately, dude didn't have the technology to...Read More

Add-2

Add-2 - 94 Style

Heads seem to agree that there was a Golden Age of hip-hop, but no one can agree on precisely when it occurred. Add-2, for one, can pinpoint his sweet spot right down to the year—but why tell, when he can show? On...Read More

Brenton Brown

Brenton Brown ft. Ghostwridah - Lemme Know

Whereas many rappers pride themselves on simply staying on their grind, Booth newcomer Brenton Brown subscribes to a "work smarter, not harder" philosophy. On mixtape leak Lemme Know, the New York/Miami dual representative...Read More

The Away Team

The Away Team ft. Talib Kweli & Rapsody - Set It Off

In theory The Away Team, or as they’re known individually Sean Boog the emcee and Khrysis the producer, are already Unforgettable, but just in case you missed the duo’s previous features, or contracted a sudden case of...Read More
