Summer 2013

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?

Summer is only weeks away and there’s still no clear cut anthem for the season. In fact, radio pretty much spins a set of older tracks, some of which date back to the top of this year. What’s the issue here? Are our favorite rappers above dropping tunes for cookouts and turn ups?
