Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Frick Park Market

Wherever you happen to live, I'm guessing that there's at least one place where you can pick up a freshly-assembled sandwich of supra-Subway/Quizno's/Jimmy John's quality. The eating establishment that Mac Miller celebrates...Read More

The Dean's List

The Dean's List - Kryptonite Sanity Room (K.S.R.)

It's your classic double-edged sword: with superhuman power comes equally gargantuan baggage. Take Sonny Shotz, DJ Mendoza and Mik Beatz of The Dean's List, for example—the Boston trio possess mad skills, but the game takes...Read More

Will Brennan

Will Brennan ft. Sean Buck & J. NiCS - Raise Ya Glass

Life, love, wealth, health, more Rosa Acosta stretching videos, all things I’m more than willing to Raise Ya Glass to in celebration. Of course I’m also willing to fill up a cup to some dope new hip-hop and thankfully...Read More

OCD: Moosh & Twist

OCD (Moosh & Twist) - Take Me Back

Though I'll take adulthood over childhood any day of the week (more spending money, no curfew, no parents to tell you you can't eat ice cream for breakfast...), there's nothing easy about the process of growing up; thus, I...Read More

Mac Miller

Mac Miller - Cold Feet

Whether you love him, hate him or feel indifferent, Mac Miller is a fast rising star and with good reason. The Pittsburgh-bred emcee’s boyish appeal and easy going nature are easily translated into his Twitter account,...Read More

Question?

Question? - Something More (Old Thang Back II)

C.M.F.A. was dope but, as the sole single to drop off Question?'s latest album (not to mention a departure from his usual, reflective subject matter), it likely left many fans craving Something More. Well, I'm happy to...Read More

Emilio Rojas

Emilio Rojas ft. Gilbere Forte - 100 Million Dreams

"A hundred million, a hundred million, a hundred million dreams ..." Those words, set over a sinister beat that leans heavy on the piano keys, sets off Emilio Rojas's new nightmare of a record 100 Million Dreams. Well, at...Read More

Apathy

Apathy ft. Scoop Deville - Smoke Weed Everyday

As fans of weed-rap already know, THC-loving rappers are always on the hunt for women who love to toke up as much as they do. Connecticut representative Apathy's been lucky enough to find just such a female, and on new single...Read More

HaLo

HaLo ft. Rapsody & 9th Wonder - Lines

Does it still count as subtext when you're telling people to “read between the Lines?” If you didn't catch the subtext of that rhetorical question, I kinda think not. Regardless, those who attend to the minutiae of HaLo's...Read More

Metis

Metis ft. Busy Signal - Dirty

Metis may be a Champion, but don’t get it twisted. He’s not spending his days in spas being fed fresh grapes by bikini clad models. Au contraire, instead the London buzzmaker is back on our pages to declare that he’s...Read More

Skyzoo

Skyzoo - Rocket Science

Update: Click "Listen Now" above to watch Skyzoo's Anthony Sylvester-directed "Rocket Science" video. So many rappers fail at making dope music you’d think rap was Rocket Science. While the mic-holding hordes drown in...Read More

Nappy Roots

Nappy Roots ft. Samuel Christian - Hey Love

Nappy Roots just don’t know how to be anything but completely honest. Fresh off their openly candid, Booth-approved last single Congratulations, the Southern soaked quintet wear their hearts on their sleeves…I mean mics...Read More

K. Sparks

K. Sparks - Gold Chain (Mulatto Patriot Remix)

250 dope tracks after we started DJBooth decided it was time to bring our exclusive freestyle series to a close. But what to do for an encore? Having given emcees their moment in the sun we’ve turned our spotlight to the...Read More

Eric Sosa

Eric Sosa ft. Rocki Evans - One You

Eric Sosa isn't new to the Booth, but it's been a minute, so allow me to recap: way back in April 2010, the Queens repper introduced himself with promo cut The Heart, showcasing a dense, referential lyrical style that...Read More

The Swapmeet Ensemble

The Swapmeet Ensemble ft. Rae Rosario & Kristo (of The Freshmen) - Modern Warfare

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton - Can't Hold Us

I still can’t kick the habit of going old school and making CDs for friends that want new music. I've found, though, that most of my mix CDs have one superior quality artist, who diminishes the quality of the others, and...Read More

Phonte

Phonte x King Mez x Charlie Smarts - In the 336

Wondering how they do it "In the 336? You've come to the right place--on the inaugural leak off The Dropouts' forthcoming compilation album, three of Greenboro, North Carolina's most talented representatives come together to...Read More
