blame it on Shake January 8, 2014

The time has arrived! After revealing our Top 10 EPs and Top 10 Mixtapes, it’s time to unveil our Top Albums of 2013. Once again, this isn’t a Top 10 list in the sense that we believe these are the best projects, but rather our favorite from the past 365 in no particular order.

Hate it or love it, that’s up to you and we welcome your opinion in the comment section. Feel free to list your favorites as well!
