List Criteria: Only rap songs that were big in 2013. Songs that were released in 2012 are acceptable in some cases (ex. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis "Thrift Shop")

This is a list of the best rap songs of 2013 so far from some of the best rappers of all time. This year has brought both new and old rappers to the forefront, with young rappers like Chance the Rapper and Childish Gambino, seeking to challenge previously established rappers such as Kanye West, Jay Z, and Lupe Fiasco. 

What are the best rap songs out right now? Do the greatest rap songs of 2013 compare with the best rap songs of 2012? Do the greatest rappers of this year put out the best songs, or merely the best albums? Is Tyler the Creator just a drop in the bucket or will his creations stand the test of time, influencing hundreds of other artists to come? Which artists have steadily grown over their career, which rappers have pushed the boundaries of the old rap convention? Is their a conventional style of rap? These are the question you must ponder before you weigh in on this list. Take time, think, feel, put on your headphones and take a walk, for your vote will determine everything on this page alone. Who will stand and who will fall? Make your own additions as well!
