¡MAYDAY!

#1 - Lil' Wayne x ¡MAYDAY! - On Fire (¡MAYDAY! Remix)

I once wrote that Lil Wayne’s last album The Rebirth was almost unlistenably bad, a verdict I still stand by, mostly because Wayne decided to go it alone instead of recruiting someone well versed in rock-rap combinations to...Read More

Gucci Mane

#2 - Gucci Mane ft. Nicki Minaj & Pharrell Williams - Haterade

Wait, I thought Stuart Scott trademarked the phrase “Haterade” way back in 2005? Shouldn’t the esteemed Mr. Scott at least get a credit next to Nicki Minaj and Pharell on Gucci Mane’s new single? Sportcenter...Read More

Slim Thug

#3 - Slim Thug ft. B.o.B. - So High

When the Houston resurgence happened in the mid-2000s, one H-Town representative didn’t get the shine he was due – Slim Thug. Still chasing the recognition he deserves, the Boss of All Bosses is reloading for another shot...Read More

Big Boi

#4 - Big Boi ft. Andre 3000 & Sleepy Brown - Lookin for Ya (Jedi Remix)

If label politics didn't stop artists from making the music they want, with whoever they want, the hip-hop game – and, by extension, the world – would be better for off. Till that utopia becomes a reality, though, you can...Read More

Pimp C

#5 - Pimp C ft. Drake & Bun B - What Up

While Bun B and Drake go way back, like So Far Gone back, since Bun’s fellow UGK-for-lifer Pimp C died well before Drizzy achieved rap stardom, we can only guess how Chad Butler would have felt about Drake’s newfound...Read More

Eminem

#6 - Eminem ft. Lil Wayne - No Love

Honestly, the first time I heard Eminem’s new leak No Love, I thought it was a joke. Can you blame me? For some reason usually on-point producer Just Blaze chose to make Haddaway’s 1993 dance hit What Is Love, best known...Read More

Xzibit

#7 - Xzibit ft. Trick Trick - H.F.O.U (Highest Form of Understanding)

According to the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, “Teaching is the Highest Form of Understanding.” While it's hard to say whether Xzibit's aim on new single H.F.O.U. was to edify or simply to get a few things off his...Read More

Kanye West

#8 - Kanye West ft. Mos Def, Swizz Beatz, Raekwon & Charlie Wilson - Lord Lord Lord

For all of the shots he’s taken, you have to admit nobody makes Fridays more exciting than Kanye West. For the better part of a month, West has kept the world in baited anticipation for his G.O.O.D. Friday series and this...Read More

Yo Gotti

#9 - Yo Gotti ft. J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa & Wale - Look in the Mirror (Remix)

In a famous Greek legend, the vain Narcissus fell so deeply in love with his reflection in a pool of water that he found himself rooted to the spot, unable to look away even to save his life. If you don't hear from Yo Gotti...Read More

Soulja Boy

#10 - Soulja Boy - Speakers Going Hammer

Hate as haters may, Soulja Boy's still on his grind, working on an album which the hoe-supermanning hip-popster claims will be his biggest and best yet. While the title of The Deandre Way suggests a shift into more personal...Read More

Kid CuDi

#11 - Kid Cudi ft. Kanye West - Erase Me

Kid Cudi owes much of his success to his widespread appeal. In addition to having hip-hop nation on lock, or at least the stoner portion thereof, Mr. Solo Dolo attracts no shortage of hipsters and electro-heads. It seems only...Read More

Twista

#12 - Twista ft. Chris Brown - Make a Movie

First off, let’s clear up any confusion that may result from the title of Twista’s new single. No, it’s not that Make a Movie, or that Make a Movie, or even this Movie. Got it? Despite its not-so-original name, the song...Read More

Eminem

#13 - Eminem - Not Afraid

What do Amy Winehouse, Tiger Woods, and Nicole Richie all have in common? That’s right – they’re all Eminem fans, and, like most of us, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say they’re addicted to Mr. Mathers' rhymes. But...Read More

Kanye West

#14 - Kanye West - Devil in a New Dress

True to his word, enigmatic and temperamental hip-hop genius Kanye West dropped yet another new record on G.O.O.D. (see previous effort Monster), this time in the form of the smoky Devil in a New Dress. Ironically, although...Read More

Yo Gotti

#15 - Yo Gotti ft. Gucci Mane - For The Hood

I know it sounds incredible, but the new single from infamous Memphis rapper and drug dealer Yo Gotti, For the Hood, doesn’t feature Mr. Gotti rapping about dealing drugs, but rather is a complex look at the political,...Read More

Laws

#16 - Laws & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble ft. Dave Young - Never

Everything’s better when backed by a live band. Everything. Even sex. Did I say that out loud? The point is, DJBooth Freestyle Alum and day job quitter Laws has stepped back in the Booth, and this time he’s rolling deep...Read More

Eminem

#17 - Eminem ft. Rihanna - Love the Way You Lie

This is like when Run DMC and Aerosmith got together, I swear. Two of the biggest names in modern music culture have teamed up for a collaboration that has radio screaming number one, and with the Recovery album sales - 750K...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#18 - Birdman ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga - Loyalty

If there’s anything that Cash Money is known for, it’s a sense of Loyalty and family values. Apart from the Juve-B.G.-Mannie Fresh fiasco, CM has stuck behind their artists. Although the Hot Boys fell apart, don’t...Read More

J. Cole

#19 - J. Cole - Blow Up

J.Cole is simply on fire right now. Already co-signed/actually signed by Jay-Z, coasting with his first single Who Dat on the charts, and all before his first album has even dropped, Cole certainly seems like the next big...Read More
