The 25 Most Slept-On Songs Of 2013

Alex Wiley featuring Chance The Rapper and GLC, “Spaceship II”
Mixtape: Club Wiley
The only thing more dope than re-making a Kanye classic was getting GLC to reprise his cameo. This is Chicago 3.0.

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, “Deeper”
EP: Deeper
MadGibbs have been putting out dope joints for a couple years now in small doses, but this is one of their toughest.

French Montana featuring Max B, “Once In A While”
Album: Excuse My French
For an album with monster tracks like “Pop That” and “Ain’t Worried About Nothin’,” the project’s opening song got overlooked way too much. This hook is just as infectious as anything else on Excuse My French and deserved a little more shine.

Big K.R.I.T. featuring Big SANT, “How U Love That”
Mixtape: King Remembered In Time
It’s that Mississippi swamp K.R.I.T., and Big SANT comes in and leaves only destruction in his wake. He’s like an updated Bun B for the future.

Mac Miller featuring Jay Electronica, “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes”
Album: Watching Movies With The Sound Off
People forget that there was a world before “Control” when Jay Electronica’s name still sent shivers of expectation down the spines of die-hard hip-hop fanatics. Flipping and spinning nursery rhymes and Disney characters to suit his narrative, this was his best verse of the year.
