Obligatory best rap songs of 2013 list

Lucky '13: the year Yelawolf transformed from an ol' Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg lookin' ass whigga to a heavily filtered Instagram picture of Mac Dre.

Dropping this post today so those two French bredders will have time to come through with a couple of zipfiles of all the songs again for doz dat slept. List will be subject to change once the E-40 albums drop/per random outta-the-blue loosies/if King Louie finally unleashes the last few unreleased 2011 Dope & Shrimp cuts on his new mixtape but, for now, these are the songs I ride 4 and I've rode 2 this year, including a couple of cuts I hated at first.

Usual one song per artist rule applies, there's no order of preference although the songs are (loosely) clumped together geographically this year, and the list includes a handful of songs which dropped very late december 2012 but didn't really make a ripple until 2013 so they're eligible for inclusion. Rap & Bullshit jams are also eligible providing the Rap ratio is in balance with the Bullshit ratio. Call it the What's the 411? law:

was not expecting to see a stalley song lol

Lost Art said...

Really appreciate you doing this.

Will appreciate the rar files even more ;p

Habibi said...

Good look on Giftz's Death Wish. A harrowing, hard-knocking, 2 and a something minute D-boy song as there ever was.

The rest of the list will take time to digest. Good thing I'm currently unemployed.

SORRY BUD said...


Ben said...

Not a fan of Ka?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Respect what Ka does and the way he does it, but his music is too weird for my tastes.

Gonna spend tomorrow going through this. Props.

James said...

LMAO @ that Dorrough track.

James said...

Wasn't expecting a Stalley song either!

Or "Bound 2".

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Re: Dorrough's That Water, there weren't enough Rap songs about pussy juices/female ejaculation this year, imo.

Re: Stalley and KanYe, both Cup Inside A Cup and Bound 2 are undeniable.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Been informed that Dorrough's That Water is from 2011 even though the video is 2013.

Switched it for After Party which I also fucked with.

Drew said...

"Party" over "Type Of Way" is an interesting choice.

Great list.

done said...

Holup mane should I have listened to the Kanye album? Stalleys Swangin remake/bite is worth checking too even if they kinda fucked up the beat cos theres a nice 'Face verse.

Gonna run through these once someone zips em up, looks class from what i recognise as per usual though.

There we go.

hotbox said...

Much props for this list and the rar files. I haven't really listened to new rap all year so this is a good place to start.

RMH said...

You are both doing the lord's work here.

dj said...

Haven't heard half of these tracks. Great list.

Drew Huge said...

Must have been tricky to narrow down to that Gucci Mane track. It's not as good as 'Cinderella' though. That's the one.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Wrestling references on Ring The Alarm FTW.

You the man, Marty.
