Kid Ink

#1 - Kid Ink ft. Chris Brown - Show Me

Kid Ink impressed me with his Almost Home EP back in May, but now it's time for him to Show Me what he can do on a full-length project. Luckily, he is off to a good start on My Own Lane, a crisp, refreshing effort, that acts...Read More

Rick Ross

#2 - Rick Ross ft. Future - No Games

Like many emcees, Rick Ross occasionally refers to his business as the rap game. In the Maybach Music Group capo's case, however, that expression is a bit misleading; as he emphasizes on the freshly-released lead single off...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#3 - Lupe Fiasco - Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus

Early last month, Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter to announce the September 11, release of something called Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus. Today, we finally learn what's behind that cryptic title: a dope new promo single. On this...Read More

Meek Mill

#4 - Meek Mill ft. Nicki Minaj, Fabolous & French Montana - Its Me (I Be on That)

Fresh off lending his flow to Yo Gotti's F**k You, Meek Mill steps back into the spotlight with It's Me (I Be on That), a brand new single off his next mixtape. Though this whip-ready selection is, as the title suggests, a...Read More

Rockie Fresh

#5 - Rockie Fresh ft. Wiz Khalifa - Kush Do

Anyone who thinks stoners are good-for-nothings who don’t do anything but eat old pizza while watching Simpsons reruns needs to take a look at Wiz Khalifa. The Pittsburgh native smokes like a chimney but has still been the...Read More

Game

#6 - Game ft. 2 Chainz & Rick Ross - Ali Bomaye

When Muhammad Ali squared off against George Foreman in 1974's Rumble in the Jungle, Congolese audience members cheered the former by shouting, “Ali Bomaye!”, meaning, “Ali, kill him!” in Lingala. On the latest single...Read More

Big Sean

#7 - Big Sean ft. Lil Wayne & Jhene Aiko - Beware

To quote a popular misquotation of the English playwright William Cosgrove, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Big Sean echoes that sentiment on new single Beware, speaking from experience on the consequences of doing...Read More

Pusha T

#8 - Pusha T ft. 2 Chainz & Big Sean - Who I Am

For most, the maxim “Be all you can be,” serves as a reminder to always be striving for self-improvement. In Pusha T's case, it's the height of redundancy—after all, what could be better than being Pusha T? Having...Read More

J. Cole

#9 - Wale x J.Cole - Winter Schemes

Regardless of which album was your favorite of the season, you have to acknowledge the impact that both J. Cole and Wale have had on this action-packed summer of hip-hop. Despite heads' efforts to pit their respective LPs...Read More

B.o.B

#10 - B.o.B - Missing

Currently hard at work on forthcoming full-length Underground Luxury, ATL hitmaker B.o.B. has unleashed a fresh loosie to tide fans over as they await further details. On Missing, Booth-fave Emerson Brooks' quirky sample work...Read More

Juicy J

#11 - Juicy J ft. Wiz Khalifa - Shootin

When two rappers who love their weed as much as Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa collaborate on a record, you'd think the mellowing effects of THC would push violent themes into the background. Apparently not—new promo single...Read More

King Chip

#12 - King Chip ft. Pusha T & Kid Cudi - Vortex

As someone who listens to rap music on a daily basis, I'm more or less desensitized to awkward, creepy and/or bizarre pickup lines. At least I thought I was, until I heard Kid CuDi tell a woman, “I want to live in your...Read More

Kanye West

#13 - Kanye West - BLKKK SKKKN HEAD

More than a month after the release of his sixth studio album, Kanye West has finally deigned to unleash a single and video off the set. (New Slaves wasn't released in a form that could be featured in the Booth, so I'm not...Read More

Future

#14 - Future - Honest

Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Future may seem like an incongruous trio, but they have at least one key trait in common: they're all Honest to a fault. Rather than candidly admitting his mistakes, as the first U.S....Read More

Bun B

#15 - Bun B ft. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz & Serani - Fire

When Bun B is involved with a cut, you just know it's gonna be straight Fire. The newly-released lead single off his fourth solo album is, of course, no exception to the rule. Here, Blackout Movement's ominous, string-laced...Read More

Fabolous

#16 - Fabolous ft. 2 Chainz - When I Feel Like It

If Fabolous were to write up a to-do list, there'd be only one item on it: “whatever I damn well please.” And he'd probably never get around to checking it off because, as a man who does whatever he damn well pleases,...Read More

DJ Drama

#17 - DJ Drama ft. Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti & Juicy J - 4 What

Sick of people asking you to lay off the volume when you've got your speakers on blast? Try shouting, “Turn down 4 What?!” The concerned citizen will probably sputter something about noise ordinances or common courtesy,...Read More

ScHoolboy Q

#18 - ScHoolboy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar - Collard Greens

As a result of his rising stature in the rap game, ScHoolboy Q's got a little extra change jingling in his pockets. And he knows exactly what he's going to invest it in: Collard Greens. Not the kind you eat with peas and...Read More

A$AP Ferg

#19 - A$AP Ferg - Hood Pope

After his election in March, Pope Francis made news by turning down much of the traditional finery, ditching the ermine cape and red loafers and downgrading the gold cross and papal ring to, respectively, iron and silver....Read More

DJ MoonDawg

#20 - DJ MoonDawg ft L.E.P. Bogus Boys, Maino & John Blu - Bet That

Plenty of artists will swear up and down that you're going to love their next record, but DJ MoonDawg is one of the few willing to put money on it. In fact, not only would the Chi-town representative stake his fortune on the...Read More

Next Up


Nas

#21 - Nas x J. Cole - Made Nas Proud

On Let Nas Down, a standout cut off his freshly-minted sophomore set, J. Cole harked back to 2011, describing his reaction when his musical idol criticized Cole World lead single Work Out. As it turns out, though, Cole had it...Read More

Rick Ross

#22 - Rick Ross - I Wonder Why

Sometimes, it makes sense for an artist to liberate one of his or her best records as a stand-alone release. A high-quality loosie never fails to leave fans hungry for more. The latest effort from Rick Ross? Well, I Wonder...Read More

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

#23 - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis - White Walls

Given that Macklemore made a name (and a fortune) for himself by choosing quirky Thrift Shop clothes over designer brands, you'd expect the Seattle representative to make a similarly classic, economical selection when...Read More
