Mac Maclamore’s Best & Worst of 2013

0

We asked a handful of our members, contributors and group to compile their best/worst lists of 2013. We didn’t stipulate guidelines of who or what they could include, we simply asked for what they loved and what they couldn’t stand over the past year. Not all projects had to be from 2013, simply experienced during the year. Here are some of their lists!
