List Rules Only hip hop songs that became popular in 2013. Songs that were released in 2012, but weren't fully single releases until 2013 are okay for this list

This is a list of the top R&B and hip hop songs of 2013 so far. Artists such as R. Kelly grace this list, as well as the suave Frank Ocean, the high pitched Ne-Yo, the indignant Chris Brown...

These hip hop songs of 2013 are the cream of the crop. These RnB songs will knock your socks off. But which songs deserve true accolade? Which hip hop songs have integrity and dedication to craft and individuality? Which RnB songs use the most cliches, which songs defy them? Which of these artists are trying something new, rather than using the same old formula again and again only for the purpose of rolling in the big bucks?
 
Which R&B songs actually sound like the root and tradition of those letters, originally meaning Rhythm and Blues? Can you understand the blues when you are a chart topping millionaire? Which hip hop artists deserve to be on this list? Which songs deserve to be higher up on the list? Which R&B musicians do not deserve to be on this list? Which songs would you like to boot down the list, and which songs are better? Make a decision.
