BEST OF 2013: ALBUMS | SONGS | EPS | MIXTAPES

After listening to dozens of mixtapes throughout the year, we’ve narrowed our favorites down to 13. Listen/download them below:

Mixtapes are a hip-hop tradition, one of the few cherished traditions in modern popular music that seamlessly transitioned – and flourished! – in the internet age. In recent years we’ve seen every big name in hip hop launch to stratospheric heights thanks to well-received free mixtapes (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, etc). It’s hard to predict which artists will catch on in a huge, commercial way, but we’re feeling pretty confident the dude behind our #1 mixtape of 2013 is heading somewhere big, despite his inclination to not play ball.
