CLOSE

Man, time flies. It’s December 19, the year’s just weeks away from closing, and because of this, Hip-Hop Wired reflects on the respective the songs (often times anthems) that shaped fans’ experiences near and far over 365 days’ time.

Find it all in our list of the 25 best songs of 2013 on the following pages. Share your thoughts in the comments.
