10 Ways Hip-Hop Cheated Fans Summer 2013 (So Far) [PHOTOS]


Summer 2013 has been a memorable one for Hip-Hop, but just as things have gone right, others went awry. We continue to celebrate releases from Jay Z, Kanye West, J. Cole, Wale, and Mac Miller, but we can’t help but ask ourselves what happened to a bevy of their peers?

We were promised mixtapes and albums — many that have been pushed back and some that have yet to materialize. There also isn’t a clear cut anthem for the season. What gives?

Of course we have a month of hope, but the halfway mark of the season dedicated to parties and socializing has passed. Can anything that releases in the coming weeks truly be attributed to the good vibes of June through August?

Hit the jump to see 10 ways Hip-Hop fans were cheated this summer (so far). Feel free to share your thoughts or contribute additional things we may have missed in the comments section.

The game is in a state of flux right now, the sooner the labels realize that dumb n igga sh it isn’t where it’s at right now, the better it will be for all of us. The world is getting sick and tired of that bulls hit.
