Toki Wright with Big Cats - Echinacea Artwork

Toki Wright with Big Cats - Echinacea

For more than 400 years, Echinacea has been used to treat the common cold. Contemporary studies, however, suggest that the herb is nothing more than a placebo. Never one to jump to conclusions, Toki Wright weighs both sides...Read More

Chris Sims - S A V I O R Artwork

Chris Sims - S A V I O R

Though it’s been a hot minute since Nas proclaimed the genre dead, there are still many heads who believe hip-hop needs rescuing from the vanity and superficiality pervading its most popular manifestations. Chris Sims...Read More

One Dae - Bang This Artwork

One Dae - Bang This

Besides being created by the same man, all of Marco Polo’s beats have one thing in common; they make you want to turn up your speakers to the max volume. As a result it should come as no surprise that you will want to Bang...Read More

Raekwon - The Living Room Artwork

Raekwon - The Living Room

The vast majority of us will never have the opportunity to visit Raekwon‘s crib, let alone kick it in The Living Room. I live in NYC and work for the greatest hip-hop site on earth, and I’ve yet to receive an...Read More

J.Lately ft. Grynch - Roses

Oftentimes, we become so consumed with the rat race and the daily grind that we forget to take a breather and appreciate what’s around us. That’s where J.Lately comes in. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the...Read More

Bas - Charles de Gaulle To JFK Artwork

Bas - Charles de Gaulle To JFK

Next Wednesday, I’m gonna be flying from NYC to Paris to visit friends and enjoy a little R&R. (Yes, that means you’ll be deprived of my impeccable blurb stylings for a couple weeks.) Coincidentally, Bas...Read More

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

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

Booth newcomer SciFi Stu may enjoy fantastic tales of possible futures (at least, I assume so from his stage name), but his take on hip-hop is refreshingly retro. On new single and album title track Thru Life, the Scottish...Read More

Pharoahe Monch ft. Black Thought - Rapid Eye Movement Artwork

Pharoahe Monch ft. Black Thought - Rapid Eye Movement

As anyone familiar with his oeuvre already knows, Pharoahe Monch can outspit the average rapper in his sleep. Be that as it may, he doesn’t take the title of his latest feature as an excuse to nap on the job. In fact,...Read More

Bryant Dope - Field Of Dreams Artwork

Bryant Dope - Field Of Dreams

In the 1989 drama Field of Dreams, a farmer played by Kevin Costner builds a baseball diamond in a cornfield, which somehow ends up attracting the specters of numerous late, great players. I haven’t seen it since grade...Read More

Logic - Now Artwork

Logic - Now

Logic has me feeling like Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Why? Well, I want his debut album and I want it Now! I can kick and scream all I want, though, but no amount of whining will make it appear. Still,...Read More

Natural ft. Dutch ReBelle - City Kids Artwork

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

1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) ft. Ea$y Money - Sucker Free Artwork

1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) ft. Ea$y Money - Sucker Free

Herbs, lames and fakes can hit the “back” button now. 1982 has declared this page a Sucker Free zone. Don’t worry; you probably wouldn’t have liked the record anyway. Now that they’re gone, those of us...Read More

Atmosphere - Kanye West Artwork

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

The Roots ft. Greg Porn - When The People Cheer Artwork

The Roots ft. Greg Porn - When The People Cheer

The Roots’ last solo album, 2011’s undun, chronicled the rise and dramatic downfall of a middleman in the drug trade. On the forthcoming follow-up, the Philly representatives will shift focus to tackle the...Read More

Action Figures ft. Guilty Simpson - Hey MuthaF*Cka Artwork

Action Figures ft. Guilty Simpson - Hey MuthaF*Cka

Only in rap can you greet someone with an upraised middle finger and a “Hey MotherF*CKa!” and be welcomed with open arms. At least, that’s the attitude the Action Figures cop on their latest feature, and I have a...Read More

RATKING - Canal Artwork

RATKING - Canal

RATKING might seem like a peculiar name for a rising rap trio, but in this case, the shoe most definitely fits. What moniker could better describe the combo of grimy production and dominating lyricism that is the...Read More
