LIGHTAMATCH’s Favourite Mixtapes and Albums of 2013

LIGHTAMATCH's Favourite Mixtapes and Albums of 2013

Last year I decided to skip my favs for a couple of reasons. One, I don't listen to every mixtape that come out. I mostly listen to artist I'm familiar with or suggestions from others. Two, I doubt anyone gives a flying shiiiet what my favs were.

Anyway, this list isn't a "best-of" nor a "top-10". It's simply a year-end round up of some of my favourite mixtapes and albums of 2013. It's been a great year for collaborative projects and EPs in 2013, a trend I expect to continue in 2014.

For those who care, here's a list of my favourite mixtape and albums that dropped in 2013. Hopefully you'll discover a few gems. Enjoy!
