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

James Gardin ft. Phourthelove - Better Days

When storm clouds are overhead and you can’t seem to get out of your funk, sometimes all you need is a little reminder that Better Days are ahead. Still, waiting is no fun. In these situations, I recommend listening to...Read More

Nyzzy Nyce - Make It Clear

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who’s-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising...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

Jerm 9V ft. Shome - Enigma Artwork

Jerm 9V ft. Shome - Enigma

When an emerging artist is introduced to our pages, he or she often feels like an Enigma. It’s the job of a Booth debut to help us dispel that shroud of mystery and get a little insight into what makes him or her tick....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

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

Dizzy Wright - Everywhere I Go Artwork

Dizzy Wright - Everywhere I Go

Dizzy Wright may run Sin City, but that doesn’t mean the Funk Volume signee’s skills go unrecognized when he’s not at home. In fact, he takes his hometown’s energy with him no matter how far he...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

Anderson .Paak - Might Be (High) Artwork

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

I’m starting to see a theme here. The last Anderson .Paak/Lodef collab was titled DRUGS, and now the pair return with Might Be (High). Whereas DRUGS was harder than a PCP and bath salt cocktail, Might Be (High) is the...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

SZA ft. Kendrick Lamar - Babylon

On her last solo feature, a March 2013 single off her S EP, singer/songwriter SZA took us on a trip to the ICE.MOON she visits whenever she feels the need to escape from prying eyes. The TDE signee’s latest feature...Read More

iNDEED - Heavenly Artwork

iNDEED - Heavenly

According to popular culture, the musical entertainment beyond the Pearly Gates consists mainly of angelic choirs and a whole lotta harp. Which sounds nice and all, but where are you supposed to get your fix of dope rhymes?...Read More

Jakk Frost

Jakk Frost - Chinese Starz

From the title of Jakk Frost‘s latest feature, Chinese Starz, I assumed the Philly mainsay had been training with shurikens. (Yeah, I know, those are actually Japanese.) But the rhymes the Philly veteran delivers on...Read More

Girl Talk & Freeway ft. Jadakiss - I Can Hear Sweat Artwork

Girl Talk & Freeway ft. Jadakiss - I Can Hear Sweat

Freeway may call himself the Philly Freezer, but don’t expect to shiver while listening to his latest single. On the contrary, this cut is more likely to have you mopping perspiration from your brow. A thematically...Read More
