I'm not an Eminem fanboy, but I do think that he is automatically discredited because of factors that have nothing to do with his raps. 

 

lol props for catching that. Not many would.

I'm not saying he's the end all, but certainly more listenable than anything by 2 chainz, wayne, drake, or anyone from MMG. 

Stop. Go listen to NWTS. Easily his best album and very progressive considering how radio friendly his sound is. 

 

Other than that, some of the recent mixtapes/albums I've enjoyed have been Blue Chips 2, My Name is My Name, INNANETAPE, and Old (by Action Bronson, Pusha T, Vic Mensa, and Danny Brown, respectively. As dangerous as it may be to say this, I think 2013 has been a very good year for hip hop.

Run the Jewels - S/T is one of the best hip-hop releases this year, and it's a free download. Collaboration between Killer Mike and El-P. Definitely check it out.

I'll give it a go.

I agree, the freshman class of 2013 is one of the strongest ever.

Just getting up on this thread and am going to go back and through and try to get some of the recommendations... Thanks for keeping it alive. The beauty about Hip-Hop is that it has evolved so much over time but at the same time is exactly the same as it always has been, beats and lyrics...just like all forms of music there are different styles, and sub genres...so "real" is subjective.

 

Also...my 2 cents on the Eminem conversation....Em is clearly a "real hip hop artist", it's not even worth debating. But I will say this latest effort is highly disappointing...too much singing (by him vs rapping, the guest hooks are usually alright but him singing almost full songs doesn't work) and just doesn't flow in a lot of places. There are few gems in there, but overall disappointing. And a lot of recycled lines.
