2013....the year in hip hop....
 
....shittiest year in recent memory?


the optimist in me holds out hope that we will get some certified bangers in the last few months.


but i really aint much of an optimist.


am i sleeping on some genuinely good shit?

or are most of the fags in this game now just corporate fuck bois pushing executives agendas in their music with no real talent or passion for this rap shit???

what in the holy mother fuck happened to the culture of hip hop???

sickdog 11-01-2013 05:03 AM

yeah, this year sucks big time.

Frank Sobotka 11-01-2013 05:20 AM

Seems so from my perspective but I haven't been paying much attention to what has been coming out. 'Twelve reasons to die' and 'Czarface' are the only two great albums I've listened to and Ill Bill's latest was below his standard but not awful by any means. Haven't listened to anything else enough to make a proper judgement. Deltron II & Gor Elohim might prove great upon multiple listens.

Future releases might still redeem this year though. What's still slated for a 2013 release?
Marco Polo, Marciano, G Rap, Step Brothers; Am I missing anything?

Minor correction: Odditorium/Dice Game are from last year.

Did alchemist move on to a new sound or is it still that Marciano inspired sound (Like the Bronson tape)?

Thanks for the list, anything on it especially worth a spin?

i've heard about half of these. so, yes, i am sleeping on most.
that black milk album is bangin. easily one of the best i've heard this year.
didnt know rjd2 had a new one out. add that to the listen list.
to be honest, i've been banging your boot camp & g rap mixes.
and im willing to bet those are better than most of these albums.

prodigy sounds so goddamn uninspired on that shit, but the beats are dope.

main_man 11-01-2013 11:31 AM

personally, the two best albums this year have been....

http://www.magneticmag.com/wp-conten...Jewels-web.jpg

this shit had some brutal honesty on it. and i respect that. plus the beats BANG for the most part.

KJR 11-01-2013 12:51 PM

Forgot Run the Jewels.

SHAME ON ME!

ShaDynasty 11-01-2013 01:39 PM

Its too easy to forget albums but some of the best i think:
Kismet
Indicud
NWTS
Parts Of Speech
Better Off Dead
Albert Einstein
PWOWR
Yeezus
IANAHB2
12 Reasons
Kill The Architect
Wolf
MNIMN
Nacirema Dream
LongLiveAsap
Stay Trippy
Run The Jewels
Welcome To Detroit Zoo
Marshall Mathers LP 2
Acid Rap
Trap Lord
Doris
Age Against The Machine
Boats 2
Old
NPNP
Mellowhigh

And thats just what i thought was best, there was a lot of other decent albums too. Obviously it depends on your taste, and 2011 was a much better year to me, but there was plenty of stuff i enjoyed and the years not over yet.
