Big Sean

#1 - Big Sean ft. Kanye West & Roscoe Dash - Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay

Now that his debut set's headed towards stores shelves, Motown heavyweight Big Sean's got a little more time to kick back with his girl. On this standout cut, he does just that--but not before setting the proper mood with a...Read More

The Throne

#2 - The Throne - Ni**as in Paris

“Prince Williams ain’t do it right, if you ask me. If I was him I would’ve married Kate and Ashley.” Since it’s now official that Ni**as in Paris is one of the two new singles from Watch The Throne, I figured it...Read More

Yelawolf

#3 - Yelawolf ft. Lil Jon - Hard White (Up in the Club)

Can it really be? Has Yelawolf set aside his prodigious talent and one-of-a-kind style in order to pursue a career of homogeneous club hits? Nah—but I scared you a little there, didn't I? Despite the title and the Lil Jon...Read More

Red Cafe

#4 - Red Cafe ft. Rick Ross & Ryan Leslie - Fly Together

Originally scheduled for release back in 2008, Red Cafe's Bad Boy debut has suffered the kind of delays that would convince a less dedicated emcee to start taking night classes in accounting. On the positive tip, the Brooklyn...Read More

Jadakiss

#5 - Jadakiss - Grind

Jadakiss is best known for producing gritty music for the Northeastern streets, but you might not guess it from a glance over his recent features; when the D-Block veteran's not teaming up with R&B singer Emmany to tell a...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#6 - Wiz Khalifa ft. Chevy Woods - Taylor Gang

If you picked up your copy of Wiz Khalifa's major-label debut on iTunes, then you've already heard bonus cut Taylor Gang. If not, lace up your Chucks and get ready, because here's your chance. Resurrected as a digital...Read More

The Throne

#7 - Kanye West & Jay-Z - Otis

By now, I think we're all in agreement that H.A.M. was, in point of fact, “Hard as a motherf*cker”... or are we? In any case, there's no point in resurrecting that debate when we can move on to battling over the...Read More

Roscoe Dash

#8 - Roscoe Dash - Good Good Night

No, Roscoe Dash's latest feature isn't a tribute to the pleasures of hitting the sack early. Just the opposite, in fact--on his new promo single, the Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay hookman prepares to enjoy a Good [F*cking] Night...Read More

Styles P.

#9 - Styles P ft. Busta Rhymes & Rick Ross - Harsh

There's only one word to properly describe the treatment that awaits those who run afoul of Styles P. and his crew: Harsh. If it's any consolation, though, you can be sure the D-Block emcee will sound damn smooth while...Read More

J. Cole

#10 - J. Cole - Neverland

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but two rights make something worthwhile (or at the least hype-worthy). That is exactly what listeners are getting with J. Cole's random “Any Given Sunday” summer releases in anticipation...Read More

Drake

#11 - Drake - Club Paradise

Last month, we were all treated to the first "official" single from Drake's forthcoming sophomore album. While the Boi-1da-produced Headlines certainly grabbed listeners attention, the song release didn't stop Drizzy Nation...Read More

XV

#12 - XV - The Kick

On a highly-acclaimed 2009 mixtape single, XV compared his musical grind to the death-defying chases and vertiginoius leaps of PS3/XBox classic Mirror's Edge. Two years and change later, the Kansas City native's situation is...Read More

Yo Gotti

#13 - Yo Gotti ft. Stuey Rock - Single

Still lacking a release date for his J Records debut, Yo Goitti returns to our pages with a new joint whose electrifying concept must be heard to be believed: it's a Single... about being single! Backed by Lil Lody's...Read More

Wale

#14 - Wale - Chain Music

Originally included on Wale's Eleven One Eleven Theory mixtape (released August 17), Chain Music was such a hit that the D.C. representative's decided to flip it into single numero dos off his sophomore set. Featuring the...Read More

Lloyd Banks

#15 - Lloyd Banks - Love Me in the Hood

Since Lloyd Banks' last feature, Spread My Wings, hit our homepage back in May, the G-Unit mainstay has scrapped the mixtape to which the record was attached (Cold Corner II) in order to work on his senior set... which we...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#16 - Birdman ft. Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj - Y.U.Mad

When you're doing it as big as Birdman, it's inevitable that you'll leave a few people steamed; on the latest single off his fifth studio album, the Cash Money head honcho considerately asks the haters, "Y.U. Mad?" Featuring...Read More

Trae The Truth

#17 - Trae The Truth ft. Lupe Fiasco, Big Boi, Wale, Wiz Khalifa & MDMA - I’m On

As the self-proclaimed Street King, Trae the Truth must roll with an appropriately dope retinue, right? Indubitably; and if you don't believe me, a listen to the his latest buzz record should suffice to set you straight. I'm...Read More

FreeSol

#18 - Freesol - Hoodies On, Hats Low

If you're like the rest of us, who have been wondering if Justin Timberlake is ever going make music again, the answer is "Yes*." The reason for the asterisk is because the Timberlake is taking a behind-the-scenes approach,...Read More

Ace Hood

#19 - Ace Hood ft. Beanie Sigel, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T & Styles P - Go N' Get It (Remix)

Hey look, it’s a mega-remix of a hustler’s anthem that doesn’t involve DJ Khaled. When Ace Hood dropped street single Go N’ Get It back in May readers pointed out its similarity to Hustle Hard – determined to laugh...Read More
