Now that we've passed the halfway mark of 2013, we can reflect on a bevy of quality albums from artists like Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Tyler, The Creator, Wale, and more. Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is also on the horizon, with a scheduled July 4 release date.
After some careful consideration, we realized that the latter half of the year promises an even better line up of LPs for your audible consumption. Everyone from the next up in TDE's camp to a hit-making autotune crooner to perhaps the largest superstar in YMCMB will drop projects in forthcoming months.
And you thought June was an exciting time for Hip-Hop.
See a list of the top 16 projects set to release between now and the remainder of 2013 on the following pages. Also, Hov's latest body of work was not a selection because we'll have it in 48 hours.
