2013 had plenty of great new music, and plenty of bombs. Here are some that didn’t meet the hype.
Kanye West – Yeezus
Black Skinhead hit with one of the hardest beats of the year, butin spite of a few standout tracks, Yeezus was a mostly middling-album with a lot of skippable songs.
LL Cool J – Authentic
Cool J has been on the scene for about thirty years now, and Authentic wasn’t necessarily a bad album, it just offered little to set it apart from his previous work, and very little reason to keep it on rotation.
Jay Z -Picasso Baby
Picasso Baby was just about the weakest track from an A list rapper all year. So Jay is rich enough to buy expensive art now. Who cares? Who honestly cares?
