AC

#1 - AC ft. Lina Morgana - Angel

Damn, talk about a back story. AC, the Staten Island emcee and infamous DJBooth Freestyle alum we last heard hard rhyming on About No One, strikes a much more melancholy tone on his new single Angel, a record that serves as a...Read More

Saheed

#2 - Saheed ft. !MAYDAY! - Empathy

Life ain't easy – and, as those who tuned in for cathartic mixtape cut How Can I Explain already know, Saheed is well acquainted with hardship. Be that as it may, the Panhandle State buzzmaker (and freestyle series...Read More

Dre Biggity

#3 - Dre Biggity - On My Meet The Parents Sh*t

In the grand scheme of unexpected samples Inland Empire representer and DJBooth Freestyle alum Dre Biggity’s using Queen’s The Show Must Go On to open his new, oddly titled On My Meet The Parents S**t, making it’s...Read More

GhostWridah

#4 - GhostWridah - Down Goes Frazier

If you’ve been following GhostWridah’s work at the Booth, most notably his highly acclaimed In Love With My Future, you’ll probably already have your gloves up prior to listening. However, if this is your first time...Read More

Jon Hope

#5 - Jon Hope - Pressure

They say that pressure makes diamonds, but it also crushes, pulverizes and demolishes those not strong enough to withstand it. If DJBooth nation’s response to Providence emcee Jon Hope’s last offering, the uber-approved...Read More

MaLLy

#6 - Mally - Lights Off

Ladies and gentlemen, Mally is back in your speakers and he plans on staying there. Five months after his last offering Better Days comes his latest underground single, Lights Off, a record that finds the Freestyle Series...Read More

Hoodie Allen

#7 - Hoodie Allen - Party at the Beach House

In hip-hop years, which tends to be an young man’s game, I’m somewhere between Soulja Boy and Jay-Z, so when I heard DJBooth newcomer Hoodie Allen’s mixtape standout cut I was filled with nostalgia for a time when your...Read More

The Canz

#8 - The Canz ft. El Prez & Aleon Craft - Ferris Bueller (Personal Day Off)

“When Cameron was in Egypt’s land, let me Cameron go.” You’ll have to excuse me, I just see a title like Ferris Bueller (Personal Day Off) and instinctively start quoting the most rewatchable movie of my childhood...Read More

Freeway

#9 - Freeway - Beautiful Music

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder – or, as the case may be, the ear of the listener – but, judging by the Booth reaction to Philly heavyweight (and freestyle series alum) Freeway and behind-the-boards cohort Jake...Read More

The Mad Violinist

#10 - The Mad Violinist & The Symphony Crack Orchestra - Muzik

On paper, pairing lush, hip-hop-informed grooves with lead violin seems like a strange idea – and, in a way, it is. Of course, it's hard to focus on how out-of-the-ordinary Ashanti “The Mad Violinist” Floyd's modus...Read More

Playboy Tre

#11 - Playboy Tre ft. Lil Jon - Ready Go

The crowd cheers while the visiting team leaves the field. The home team stands triumphant while Ready Go plays through the stadium. Imagine it. I can, and so did Playboy Tre. Known in the Booth thanks to an exclusive...Read More

Luck-One

#12 - Luck-One - More

If Portland, Oregon has heard an emcee representative put in work on the Booth I can’t think of them, so even if newcomer Luck-One, making his Booth debut today with his new single More, isn’t literally the first rapper...Read More

Nottz

#13 - Nottz ft. Black Milk - Blast That

Nottz is one of the best producers some of you have never heard of. A veteran in the game since 1998, Nottz has supplied plenty of our favorite artists with beats, including Game, Snoop, and Xzibit, and on his new single,...Read More

QuESt

#14 - QuESt - Inner Sense

What if video game characters had to navigate through the REAL world? They'd be disappointed that there were no treasure chests with extra coins or re-up packs for energy. But they would find QuEST, the Miami-emcee and...Read More

Mac Miller

#15 - Mac Miller - Pittsburgh Kidz Get the Biz

The 197th entry in our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series comes courtesy of Mac Miller, the Steel City native who earned reader acclaim for mixtape cut Don't Mind if I Do. On his brand new, exclusive Pittsburgh Kids Get the Biz...Read More

Woody

#16 - Woody ft. Charles Hamilton & XV - Make Believe

When you have a track with two well known emcees backing up someone less known for their vocal work, there’s always concern for the possibility of Diddy Syndrome (one guy without any talent manages to bring down the entire...Read More

Starrs & Murph

#17 - Starrs & Murph ft. William Millions & JyShoun - Here Now

Where are Rhode Island buzzmakers Starrs & Murph going to be premiering their latest mixtape leak? Here. When is it going down? Now. Am I going to write this entire track review in a question-and-answer format? No. Why not?...Read More

John Regan

#18 - John Regan ft. Joell Ortiz & Meylin - Yesterday

Considering Yesterday has literally been covered more times than any song in history, it isn’t surprising that John Regan, the Baltimore emcee who impressed us with his DJBooth debut Paint the World, has chosen to use The...Read More

Skyzoo & !llmind

#19 - Skyzoo & !llmind ft. Torae - Barrel Brothers

On Barrel Brothers, a cut off 2007's Big Doe Rehab, Wu-Tang heavyweight Ghostface hooked up with Beanie Sigel and Styles P. to craft a hard-hitting street banger for the ages. Three years later, beatsmith !llmind and B.K....Read More
