September 2, 2013 Chart RecapTerrace Martin‘s “Triangleship” tumbles from first to fifth this week, clearing the way for Rich Quick‘s “Travelin Man (STREECE Remix)” to take the lead. Tech N9ne retains second with …...Read More


Rich Quick

#1 - Rich Quick ft. Rakka Iriscience & Reef The Lost Cauze - Travelin' Man (STREECE Remix)

Since this is his DJBooth debut, you can’t blame me for not knowing much about Rich Quick. All I (and you) need to know is that Quick has a co-sign from the legendary Tim Armstrong of Rancid and The Transplants; that makes...Read More

Tech N9ne

#2 - Tech N9ne ft. Wrekonize, Twizted Insane & Snow Tha Product - So Dope

Just how dope is Tech N9ne's latest promotional single, So Dope (They Wanna)? Well, you might want to have a methdone script lined up before hitting play; otherwise, you may find yourself unable to stop listening. A...Read More

Lil Dicky

#3 - Lil Dicky - Jewish Flow

Back in February, we heard Philly emcee Lil Dicky spit about the many perks of life as a Caucasian on White Dude, a mixtape cut which transcended its potentially painful premise by offering an on-point satire of white...Read More

Nate Good

#4 - Nate Good - Sugar Water

I’d really like to see the birth certificate of Booth newcomer Nate Good. He claims to be a 20-year-old raised in Purcellville, VA, but, after checking out Sugar Water, I think he was really born in 1920s New York. How else...Read More

Terrace Martin

#5 - Terrace Martin ft. Kendrick Lamar - Triangleship

On Can't Choose, the recently-featured Booth debut from JRDN, the T-Dot singer attempted to sidestep the decision between two equally promising woman by inviting both to a romantic dinner for three. Sadly, that solution is...Read More

PHZ-Sicks

#6 - PHZ-Sicks ft. TFOX - Coming Down

It's been a hot minute since Virginia-based rhymesayer PHZ-Sicks last rolled through The DJBooth; Success/Failure hit our front page way back in December of 2010. A man can change a lot in three years, but I'm happy to say...Read More

Ab-Soul

#7 - Ab-Soul - Christopher DRONEr

Let it not be said that Ab-Soul shies away from controversy. On his latest feature, the Top Dawg Entertainment signee combines two of the most provocative topics in recent memory—cop killer Christopher Dorner and the US...Read More

Fundament

#8 - Fundament ft. Coleman Hell - Magnifying Glass

When I read the title of Fundament's latest single, I immediately thought of the wholesome childhood pastime of burning bugs with concentrated sunlight. I may have a sick mind but, as it turns out, the Toronto rhymesayer is...Read More

Cam Meekins

#9 - Cam Meekins - Joe Flacco

If you are like me, then you can hardly wait for football season to begin. In addition to watching way too many meaningless preseason games, I have been hard at work prepping for fantasy football. In fact, in all my mock...Read More

Frank Leone

#10 - Frank Leone - LiFE

If you're a loyal Booth reader—and I certainly hope you are—you may experience a touch of déjà vu upon hitting play on Frank Leone's latest feature. LiFE, the Chi-Town rapper/producer's self-directed video debut is...Read More

KIDD

#11 - KIDD ft. Derek Minor & Gemstones - Royal Lies

In Plato's Republic, Socrates famously argues that rulers can be justified in misleading the populace, provided their untruths contribute to the harmony and stability of society. (As evidenced by recent revelations regarding...Read More

P.R

#12 - P.R ft. Skyzoo & Substantial - Set the Scene

In the grand scheme of things, a month between a first and second Booth feature ain't long at all—some artists spend years away from our pages before making a repeat visit. Nonetheless, in light of the tremendously positive...Read More

Dizzy Wright

#13 - Dizzy Wright ft. Logic & Kirk Knight - Untouchable

You know, as awesome as Dizzy Wright's latest Booth feature is, its title makes no sense at all. There are going to be way too many people feeling the record for it to be called "Untouchable." You know what is Untouchable,...Read More

Jered Sanders

#14 - Jered Sanders - Black

On a classic 1969 single, blues/soul legend Syl Johnson reflected on the sheer amount of struggle and disappointment he'd faced over the course of his life, wondering, “Is It Because I'm Black?” More than half a century...Read More

Miami Beat Wave

#15 - Miami Beat Wave, ¡MAYDAY! & ArtOfficial ft. Katie DiCicco - Neighbors

Are you a fan of South Florida independent hip-hop? Then you may get the urge to pinch yourself after learning that local crews Miami Beat Wave, ¡MAYDAY! and ArtOfficial are planning to release a collaborative project, just...Read More

SonReal

#16 - SonReal - Everywhere We Go

Judging by some of the Tweets that are posted and some of the emails that we receive at The DJBooth, it’s safe to say some rappers take themselves wayyyyy too seriously. While it's good to take your craft to heart, what’s...Read More

G-Eazy

#17 - G-Eazy - Been On

While G-Eazy is currently busy traveling the country as part of Weezy's America's Most Wanted Tour, he hasn't taken that as an excuse to stop recording. In between gigs, he found the time to record new single Been On and...Read More

Crystal Seth

#18 - Crystal Seth - Super Natural

I think I have been watching too much Breaking Bad, because at first I thought Booth newcomer Crystal Seth’s name was really "crystal meth." Come to think of it, though, the edgy style he display on Super Natural (a...Read More

Fundament

#19 - Fundament - Don't Stop

Not only is this Fundament's first DJBooth feature, but it is also a Booth-exclusive world premiere; I’d call that killing two birds with one stone. My only piece of advice to the T-Dot product (yes, another dope Toronto...Read More

Rapsody

#20 - Rapsody ft. Phonte & Jay Electronica - Jedi Code

With her Gangsta Grillz tape just hours away from release, Jamla Records rhymesayer Rapsody has liberated one last standout cut to whet fans' appetites. Label boss 9th Wonder mans the boards on Jedi Code, pairing grimy organ...Read More

Next Up


Pell

#21 - Pell ft. Flywalker - Never Let Go

Although Pell's July Booth debut, Ocean View 2.0, definitely got my attention, his style was so unique and refreshing that I wasn’t exactly sure who he was as an emcee. The follow-up (a Booth-exclusive world premiere) is a...Read More

Nom

#22 - NOM - The Christening

“Your grill shining bright, but n**ga, what about your aura?” As evidenced by those lines from new single The Christening, Nom's priorities are a little different from your average emcee's. But we in the Booth appreciate...Read More

Locksmith

#23 - Locksmith ft. Jarell Perry - Much More

If Locksmith were a Major League Baseball player, I’d assume that he's been hanging out with A-Rod and Ryan Braun (cough…cough…taking PEDs), because the Bay Area emcee is batting a thousand here in the Booth. His latest...Read More
