2013 nappyafro Awards: Underground Albums of the Year

2013 Underground Albums Of The Year

There are probably a few more albums that deserve to make the list, but I don’t have the time or patience to play every underground album of 2013. For example, Ugly Heroes and Highway Robbery are two albums I’m sure will make the list, but I have not got around to playing them yet. It wouldn’t feel right adding albums I haven’t even listened to. So, if there are any albums that you feel deserve a mention, shout them out under comments.
