Top 25 Songs of 2013

While hip-hop has always had its gripes with the increasingly singles-focused market over the years, songs create moments, and 2013 wasn’t short on those big moments. Drake ignited an entire year of Nothing Was the Same fever with “Started From the Bottom,” Kanye West went global with his “New Slaves” premiere, Drake elevated Migos’ “Versace” into a certified smash, and then there was Kendrick Lamar and his A-bomb of a verse on Big Sean’s “Control.”

This list isn’t based solely off popularity or impact (although those were factored in, of course); some of the songs we just straight up enjoyed throughout last year. So, after much deliberation trying to nail down over 100 songs to a clean and concise list, here are MissInfo.TV’s top 25 songs of 2013.
