This past year was another strong one for albums with releases from many of the top names in hip-hop (such as Kanye West, Jay Z, Eminem, Drake, and J. Cole) as well as releases from much of hip-hop’s rising class (including Mac Miller, Danny Brown, and A$AP Rocky). As far as Canadian hip-hop goes, we saw the long-awaited return of the godfather of it all, Maestro Fresh Wes, as well as the latest releases from two of Canada’s future legends, Classified and Shad. We saw the emergence of budding artists like Sese and Quake Matthews, the return of established artists like Wale and Pusha T, and many, many more albums in between. We liked a lot of albums this past year, and we loved a select few even more. Without further ado, The Come Up Show presents its favourite albums of 2013.
