Well besides the unexpected debate about Lil’ B and Riff Raff’s music in the comments of last year’s Predictions/Hopes, not many of you predicted or hoped for much in Hip-Hop for 2013. Are you too content people? Don’t you wish for anything?
P-Body did hope foran original 2Pac album with no changes made to the primary songs but sadly this did not happen.
Kanye and Kim breaking up? Damn was I off. Those two not only stuck it out through a whole year of attention and paparazzi smack downs but they had a mother-flipping baby! Now the question is who is going to grow up to be the bigger diva, North West or Blue Ivy Carter?
Speaking of XXL Freshmen, who was completely right about Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul making the list this year?Calvin was! I know it’s not much of a stretch to assume XXL had their ear pressed to the street hard enough to put these artists on the list but don’t forget that back in 2009 they looked passed both Drake AND Nicki Minaj (who just so happen to be 2 of the biggest Hip-Hop acts to come out this decade).
Lucky for him, Charles Hamilton had some good people around him so he didn’t make any ridiculous appearances this year or any appearance worth noting full stop. Get better Sonic.
Out of the artists I thought would blow up in 2013 the only one that kind of did was Joey Bada$$. Rapsody did her thing too (thank god) with She Got Game. Death Grips released Government Plates while Flatbush Zombies brought out their 2nd mixtape BetterOffDEAD but they didn’t really blow up on the scene like I predicted.
Mentioning Detox is just like crying wolf so nothing more is to be said. Along with Watch the Throne 2 and Cruel Winter.
