The J-Ca$h movement working with Drew Correa (Lil Wayne Producer) Ariel Chobaz (Grammy Award Winning Engineer) is working on new endeavors. J-Ca$h recently paid his way out of Slip -N- Slide Records and is now making huge underground noise. His videos are heavily circulated throughout the Miami area and on local television program VideoMix. There's no question about it, J-Ca$h is the next big thing outta Miami. His street cred is certified, and his name rings bells in the streets.
Fresh off our sold out show at Backbooth, Caskey releases his new video for "One Shot".
Caskey's other new video "Keep It On The Low" ft. Kyle DenMead is becoming a regular on BET's 106 and Park so please keep voting and supporting the movement!
Rio de Janeiro-born, Florida-based emcee NIKO IS has come together with The DJBooth to bring listeners his latest mixtape, Chill Cosby. The artist's fourth street release of 2012, the project features 13 original jams. Included on the tracklist are DJBooth-approved singles "Smoking Jacket" and "Steffi Graf." Action Bronson makes the sole guest appearance on the tape, which features production by NZM, RiskyBeats, Ryen Towers, Thanks Joey and more.
Midwestern emcee ProbCause drops the next single from his project, The Recipe EP. Titled "Waiting Games" and featuring fellow Chicago artists Mike Golden and Universal Records signee YP, "Waiting Games" brings up the all too familiar dilemma of a having a relationship with someone that doesn't understand the demands of being a rapper and trying to make it in the entertainment world. While Prob and YP trade verses about their females that await them at home while the guys are out in the streets trying to make it, Mike Golden belts the hook over the track. Check for the switch up in the last minute for Prob's last verse...
Prepping for the release of their project Watch This! set to hit the net on January 11th, Two Fresh, producers/rappers featured on Mac Miller's Macadelic project release the lead single to their own project dubbed "Aloha." The “Aloha” single is a tropical anthem and 3rd official music video installment from Coffer, that showcases the guys doing what they do best - sippin' Hennesey and pina coladas, smokin doobs and prepping for what looked like a bangin sushi meal.
Two Fresh's choppy beat is a wavy head-banger tastefully woven with rhymes from PURPL MONK and Miyagi of Ziggurat. Production from the track bounces along a choppy lil' piano loop, flipped to fit the island feel as the tandem vibes out on the track. Follow everyone here @twofreshbeats @zigguratrecords @yurpl_monk @miyagisay
Those who peeped the visuals for NIKO IS’ first feature, Smoking Jacket, likely noticed an Action Bronson look-alike as one of the Rio de Janeiro-born, Florida-based spitter’s poker buddies. On Steffi Graf, the second world premiere off NIKO’s Booth-hosted forthcoming full-length, the Flushing, Queens buzzmaker actually joins NIKO as a guest rhymesayer. In contrast to the aforementioned cut’s laid-back vibe, this cut is all about in-your face swagger; RiskyBeats’ wailing sax and rock’n'roll piano back the collaborators as they deliver verses jam-packed with inventive braggadocio. Like what you’re hearing? More fresh cuts await on Chill Cosby, scheduled to hit The DJBooth December 3, for free streaming and download.
