The Best FREE HipHop Releases of 2013

The Best Free Releases of 2013
2013 was a strong year for hip-hop. What made 2013 extraordinarily good was the amount of free material that was released by artists. This tactic is usually done by up and comers which is understandable as they’re trying to build their name and brand. Sometimes but not often some well known and established acts take the interntdustry by storm by releasing albums that trump those that are being peddled by major labels for money. So incase you missed something this year here’s a slew of FREE albums that dropped in 2013. I will say I don’t co-sign everything on the list but there’s no denying the importance of some of these albums. Not all links are mine as I googled most of this stuff. Shouts to HHH reddit! for the help.
