SciFi Stu ft. yU, Boog Brown, Hus Kingpin & Chinch 33 - Thru Life

Kidd Upstairs - Picasso

Natural ft. Dutch ReBelle - City Kids

Sure, City Kids may be a few months old, as it was included on Natural‘s free, DJBooth-hosted Ways to Go LP, which dropped in November. But when a record is this dope, it could be decades old and still sound brand new....Read More

Atmosphere - Kanye West

Minneapolis duo Atmosphere rolls in very different circles than Kanye West, but they’ve got more than simply a region in common with the Windy City hip-hop heavyweight. Coming on the heels of early March’s Bitter,...Read More

Anderson .Paak - Might Be (High) [Premiere]

Watch The Duck ft. T.I. - Girlfriend (Hustle Gang Remix)

Irv Da PHENOM! - Dumb Ass Kids [Premiere]

e-dubble - No Rest For The Wicked Artwork

e-dubble - No Rest For The Wicked
