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

Neako

#2 - Neako - Regulate

Seven days after my 10th birthday, which I am sure was celebrated with Chicago Bears-themed party plates, silverware and napkins, West Coast legend Warren G released the most popular song of his career. Found on the...Read More

Mac Miller

#3 - 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

Luck-One

#4 - 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

The ILLZ

#5 - The ILLZ - Cover Me (I'm Going In)

As much as I like the lighter side of hip-hop, I always enjoy a hard track when it comes into my inbox. So if you’re like me, you’ll definitely appreciate the diamond-hard track that New Jersey representer The ILLZ has...Read More

Jesse Abraham

#6 - Jesse Abraham - Yoga

If we learn one thing about Jesse Abraham today (aside from his creativity), it’s that he’s funny as hell. Actually, we may have learned that on his last offering, the equally-original and Booth-acclaimed Spiderman on...Read More

Black Cobain

#7 - Black Cobain ft. Wale & Tre - Will Farrell

Regular Booth readers know that I’m a writer who enjoys inserting pop culture references into my intros, so Black Cobain’s new mixtape standout Will Farrell (incorrectly titled Semi Pro elsewhere in the blogosphere) was...Read More

MaLLy

#8 - 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

John Regan

#9 - 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

Playboy Tre

#10 - 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

Steve Liriks

#11 - Steve Liriks - Fix You

It goes without saying that an emcee who calls himself Steve Liriks is serious about his pen game but, as is often the case, the name only tells part of the story. In addition to doing beautiful things with the written word,...Read More

Jon Hope

#12 - 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

Ski Beatz

#13 - Ski Beatz ft. Jim Jones & Curren$y - Go

As even a casual hip-hop fans know, the chances of an album actually coming out on its original release date are about as good as Lindsay Lohan passing a drug test. So while it’s not shocking that we had to wait for Ski...Read More

Joell Ortiz

#14 - Joell Ortiz - Battle Cry

I’ve been called crazy for making this claim before, most recently on Joell Ortiz’ previous feature ‘80s Baby, but for my money, the Brooklyn microphone destroyer is Slaughterhouse’s best emcee. Budden may be deeper,...Read More

Emilio Rojas

#15 - Emilio Rojas ft. Mickey Factz - Ex Girl

Ah, ex-girlfriends. They’re like girlfriends, but even crazier and you don’t have to buy them things. (I’ll be sleeping on the couch tonight for that one.) Luckily I’ll be able to commiserate with NYC rhymespitter and...Read More

Jeff Chery

#16 - Jeff Chery ft. Curt@!n$ - Doubt Me

Doesn’t it seem like every rapper, even the ones with millions of adoring fans, believe the world is against them? Like Michael Jordan did throughout his entire NBA career, artists today have a tendency to make up imaginary...Read More

Chris Faust

#17 - Chris Faust ft. Capri & Carras Paton - Good Days, Good Nights

As Ice Cube so famously laid out, there’s nothing quite as good as a good day, unless of course it’s a good night. Did that make any sense? The point is, deeply creative Brooklyn emcee Chris Faust is here with a new...Read More

ProHoeZak

#18 - Prohoezak - Love & Happiness

When East Palo Alto artist/producer ProHoeZak made his first, and until today only, appearance in the Booth he was an auto-tuned, chromed-out Superman. What a difference a couple years make. In sharp contrast to his previous...Read More

Jabee

#19 - JABEE ft. Carlitta Durand - Imagination

How could a record be better than up-and-coming Oklahoma City emcee JABEE’s last Booth approved effort Better? You’ll just have to use your Imagination. (Shout out to me for the puns.) Making its worldwide premiere right...Read More
