12 Musical Acts to Watch For In 2013

BBNGWe already know which albums we’re anticipating the most this year, though admittedly there have been some announced recently—I’m looking at you Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience—that would have definitely made our list. But what about the relatively new artists who we think are going to make some noise or, at least, drop some serious projects in 2013? Well, we got to thinking and quickly decided that they deserve some shine, too.

Not everyone on here is a rookie in the traditional sense of the word, meaning that they released some kind of album or EP in the previous year. But most have made huge strides in the short time we’ve been in 2013, be it through prepping a long-form project or signing a deal with a notable label. Others have only just recently plopped themselves on our radar while a few have been favorites of ours for quite some time.

Without further adieu, we present the 12 artists to watch for in 2013.

    Missed out on World’s Fair, otherwise a lot of these artists are dope.

    I’d argue that Clayton Samus & Da$h and Retch, could have a dope year too

    And then if we make it all one page, everyone complains there are too many pictures and it takes forever to load.
