Check Out: Hip Hip of 2013

2013 has been an absolute great year for Hip Hop. We've seen new releases from Kanye, Jay-Z, Eminem and Drake to Earl, Pusha T, and Danny Brown. This list is going to present some of our personal favorite songs from this year and why.
Pusha T - "Numbers on the Boards"

"Numbers on the Boards" was my first experience of Clipse member Pusha T. His flow and lyricism is out of this world. Especially on top of a killer Kanye-produced beat.
Danny Brown - "The Return Ft. Freddie Gibbs"
"The Return" is a direct sequel to Outkast's "The Return of the G" off of Danny Brown's new album "Old". This song deals with the idea of Danny Brown's "image" as being weak or soft. This is something that Andre 3000 experienced aswell. The beat is in the bass on this song and flow is ridiculous. Gibb's part is probably my favorite. Danny kills it too though.

Black Milk - "Sunday's Best/ Monday's Worst"

This is Detroit rapper Black Milk's two part single from his new album "No Poison No Paradise". It's a story covering his bring up and the contrast of his older years compared to his younger. "Sunday's Best" explains being a kid in a religious family. Milk is woken up in order to make it to church. "Monday's Worst" is his older years trying to survive by theft and stick ups.
