XXL Freshmen 2013 Mixtape


XXL released their yearly mixtape compilation of songs from their Freshmen Class today. The 17-track mixtape includes songs from all of the Freshmen (except for “Honorary Freshmen” Chief Keef), and also has appearances from Gucci Mane, T.I., 2 Chainz, and Big KRIT. Some of the tracks are brand new, while others are tracks we have heard before. The tape is presented by DJ Drama, but there are different producers for all of the songs so I’m guessing that means Drama just mastered it or something. You can check out the mixtape for yourself at the link below.

XXL Freshmen Cypher Episode 3 – Dizzy Wright x Logic x Angel Haze


I missed this one when it dropped three days ago, but had to post it after I heard it. Dizzy Wright spit an insane verse with lyrics as real as anyone’s. Logic is my favorite freshman, and I was a little disappointed that he just used one of his verses from War Vet (his Rack City remix). But, he did add a couple extra lines at the end, that song was sick, and I’m sure there is some unbelievable new music on the way from Logic (Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever will be released on May 7). I haven’t listened to a lot of Angel Haze in the past, but I might have to start; she had the best wordplay on this particular cypher in my opinion. Check it out for yourself at the link below.

Logic’s XXL Freshman Freestyle


Today is a HUGE day for Logic. After announcing this morning that he had signed with Def Jam Records, Logic and XXL dropped Logic’s “Freshman Freestyle.” Logic is my favorite of this year’s freshmen, so his was the freestyle that I was most excited about. Luckily he did not disappoint. He only spits for about 45 seconds, but it is absolute fire. Check out the video below, and look out for Logic’s Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever to drop on May 7th.
