Top 25 Hip-Hop Beats of 2013

If you've read my blog before, you know I'm a huge hip-hop fan. Earlier this year, I figured it would be cool to compile a list of my 25 favorite beats of the year. While this year wasn't the finest for hip-hop on the whole in my opinion, there was a lot of great beats this year and this list was really hard to narrow down to 25. Before I move on with the actual list, here is the list of all the hip-hop releases I listened to in 2013:
Danny Brown-Old
Mac Miller-Watching Movies with the Sound Off
Ghostface Killah-Twelve Reasons to Die
Kanye West-Yeezus
Chance the Rapper-Acid Rap
Action Bronson-Blue Chips 2
Action Bronson-Saaab Stories
Run the Jewels-Run the Jewels
Earl Sweatshirt-Doris
Tyler, the Creator-Wolf
Vince Staples & Larry Fisherman-Stolen Youth LP
CZARFACE-CZARFACE
Kitty-D.A.I.S.Y. Rage
Big K.R.I.T.-King Remember in Time

Clipping-Midcity
2 Chainz-B.O.A.T.S II #METIME
Eminem-The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Kid Cudi-Indicud
Juicy J-Stay Trippy

(Note: I orignally had Collard Green by ScHoolboy Q on the list, but removed it because the album it appears on, Oxymoron, comes out in February 2014)
