MR 100' S BEST HIP HOP ALBUMS FOR 2013

BEFORE I START YOU ALL MUST KNOW THIS LIST IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ALBUMS FOR 2013.  THE ALBUMS I WILL MENTION ARE CHOSEN AS MY TOP ALBUMS OF THE YEAR CAUSE OF GREAT PRODUCTION,  GOOD LYRICAL CONTENT AND KEEPING ME ENTERTAINED BY ACTUALLY HAVING SONGS THAT MAKE SENSE.  THIS LIST IS NOT IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER.  SO I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY MY LIST AND IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD ANY OF THE ALBUMS I MENTION,  I WANT YOU TO GO BUY THEM OR JUST GO SAMPLE THE ALBUMS.







MANY WERE DISAPPOINTED WITH WALE WITH THIS ALBUM, NOT ME THOUGH. WALE TRIED TO MAKE A ALBUM WITH SONGS THAT EVERY ONE CAN RELATE TO.  I PRETTY MUCH LIKE EVERY SONG ON THIS ALBUM EXCEPT THE SONG WITH NICKI MINAJ AND JUICY J "CLAPPERS" I MEAN I UNDERSTAND HE WANTED A STRIPPER ANTHEM BUT I'M COOL, I DON'T DO STRIP CLUBS. THE OTHER SONG I WASN'T FEELING WAS WITH CEE-LO "GULLIBLE".  OVERALL THIS ALBUM IS SOLID WITH NICE PRODUCTION AND GOOD CONTENT.  




YES JAY Z'S MOST TALKED ABOUT ALBUM MAGNA CARTA MAKES MY LIST.  EARLY ON IN JAY Z CAREER I WAS HUGE FAN OF HIS, BUT I STARTED NOT FEELING JAY MUSIC TOO MUCH WHEN HE RELEASED THE KINGDOM COME ALBUM.  I STARTED REALLY LISTENING TO HIM WHEN HIM AND KANYE DID THE WATCH THE THRONE ALBUM, EVEN THOUGH KANYE LYRICALLY MURDER JAY ON THE WHOLE ALBUM.  THE RELEASE OF MAGNA CARTA THREW ME OFF CAUSE THERE WAS NO REAL PROMO FOR THE ALBUM WELL AS FAR AS SINGLES. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF WELL I WILL STILL GIVE IT A LISTEN CAUSE I LOVE HIP HOP.  I WAS TOTALLY SURPRISED HOW MUCH I WAS FEELING THIS NEW JAY Z ALBUM.  THE PRODUCTION ALONE IS TRULY AMAZING BUT THEN JAY Z LYRICS AND METAPHORS ARE RAZOR SHARP.  THIS DUDE JAY Z IS A INCREDIBLE ARTIST TO STILL REMAIN RELEVANT IN THE WORLD OF HIP HOP.  THE ALBUM'S FIRST 8 SONGS ARE HOT, MY FAVORITE SONG IS "OCEANS" FEATURING FRANK OCEAN.







THAT'S RIGHT PRODIGY'S ALBUM ALBERT EINSTEIN PRODUCED ENTIRELY BY ALCHEMIST MAKES MY LIST.  THIS ALBUM IS VERY DARK FROM THE PRODUCTION TO THE LYRICS.  I FELT LIKE THE OLD PRODIGY IS BACK WIT THEM DARK HARD GRITTY VIVID LYRICS OVER HARD DRUMS AND NICE SAMPLES SUPPLIED BY THE ALCHEMIST.  MY FAVORITE SONGS ARE "GIVE EM HELL", "DOUGH PILDIN", "STAY DOPE", "CURB YA DOG"AND "LMKDV".  OVERALL THIS ALBUM GETS SO MUCH PLAY FROM ME. ITS A SLEPT ON ALBUM.







TALIB KWELI IS ONE OF THE BUSIEST WORKING RAPPERS IN THE GAME,  HE IS OUT DOING SHOWS LIKE 200 PLUS DAYS OUT OF A YEAR.  TALIB THE ONLY RAPPER THIS YEAR WHO RELEASED TWO DAMN GOOD LP'S IN THE SAME YEAR.  AT THE TOP OF THE YEAR HE RELEASED THE ALBUM "PRISONER OF CONSCIOUS" WHICH I REALLY LIKE,  BUT HE FINISHED THE YEAR OFF STRONG WITH THIS ALBUM "GRAVITAS".  THIS ALBUM I LIKE MORE THAN "PRISONER OF CONSCIOUS".  I LIKE THIS ALBUM MORE CAUSE IT HAS MORE OF TALIB BACK TO HIS ROOTS OF SPITTING VICIOUS THOUGHT PROVOKING LYRICS.  THE ALBUM HAS ONLY 11 SONGS WHICH IS PERFECT.  THE PRODUCTION IS ON POINT.  I DON'T THINK TALIB HAS EVER RELEASED A WEAK LP.  BE SURE TO GIVE THIS ALBUM A LISTEN.








PUSHA T ALBUM "MY NAME IS MY NAME" IS FIRE!!!! PUSHA T BEEN SAYING ALL YEAR HE PUT TOGETHER THE BEST ALBUM MADE IN YEARS AND HE WASN'T LYING.  I STILL DON'T KNOW IF IT'S THE BEST RELEASED IN 2013.  BUT DAMN THIS ALBUM PUSHA T BARS ARE BEYOND FIRE.  WE ALL KNEW HIS PRODUCTION WOULD BE ON POINT CAUSE WHO IS ASSOCIATED WITH.  HIS SONG WITH KENDRICK LAMAR "NOSETALGIA" PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST SONGS OF 2013. I FEEL LIKE IF YOU LIKE HIP HOP AND YOU DON'T HAVE THIS ALBUM AS APART OF YOUR COLLECTION THEN YOU CHEATING YOURSELF OUT OF GOOD HIP HOP.  THIS IS FOR SURE A ALBUM WE WILL LATER BE COMPARING TO OTHER RAPPER'S DEBUTS.








J. COLE ALBUM "BORN SINNER" IS A CLASSIC TO ME,  SOME SAID J. COLE BORE THEM WITH THIS ALBUM BUT I'M INTO RAPPERS WHO PROVIDE A STORY WITH GOOD CONTENT.  THIS DUDE J. COLE LOST ME WITH HIS DEBUT ALBUM, IT WAS SOLID BUT IT LET ME DOWN CAUSE BEFORE HIS DEBUT ALBUM DROPPED, HE RELEASED SOME CLASSIC MIXTAPES THAT INCLUDED A LOT OF ALBUM QUALITY SONGS.  SO I WAS EXCITED FOR HIS DEBUT AND WAS LET DOWN.  J. COLE STEPPED UP HIS PRODUCTION AND WRITING SKILLS ON "BORN SINNER", I MEAN I ALREADY KNEW HE HAD IT IN HIM TO MAKE A GREAT ALBUM.  I WOULD LIKE TO SAY HIP HOP'S FUTURE IS GOOD HANDS WITH J. COLE,  KENDRICK LAMAR AND DRAKE.  EVEN THOUGH DRAKE ALBUM DIDN'T MAKE MY LIST, HE IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED RAPPERS OUT.  BUT BACK TO "BORN SINNER",  I CAN LISTEN TO THE ALBUM STRAIGHT THROUGH LIKE MOST OF MY FAVORITE ALBUMS LISTED.  THANKS FOR READING AND FEEL FREE TO COMMENT AND BECOME A FOLLOWER FOR MY MUSIC BLOG!!  THANK YOU!
