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?
