This year, XXL set out to do the most with their freshmen class. First came the cover, then the freestyles and cyphers, followed by the roundtables and now… the mixtape. Hosted by DJ Drama, the official Freshmen 2014 tape features new tracks from every freshmen (except Chance the Rapper) and features from 2 Chainz, Lloyd Banks and Fabolous.

    why everyone but chance?

  • bodiddlywiddly

    Man chance better have some hot shit coming out soon slackin this hard. His cypher verse was recycled for fucks sake

    • nah

      maybe it’s because he doesn’t give a fuuuck about XXL’s freshmen class. I think it’s a joke anyways

  • Ghost Of Len Bias

    Ty$ “Know U Aint Shit” thooooo

  • bodiddlywiddly

    Isaiah, Troy Ave, and Jarren Benton are the only niggas worthy of bein on this shit, judging by the tape. Chance failed to prove. Those 3 dudes are gonna get hotter than the rest in the long run.

    • disqus_pyrGXaSTDx

      replace troy with gates

    • @44wade

      troy ave been in the game over 10 years and was signed to def jam and released songs and videos but got dropped and is now acting like a new new yorker lol his average at best and does not belong on there

    • Doc Ock

      troy ave garbage. also shouts to chance for doing the best he can to not get his music mixed in with all this nonsense. durk the realest in this whole group

    • “Chance failed to prove”
      I don’t like him and the rappers I do like were “worthy” of being on this shit.
      Nigga Acid Rap(the entire album) has, like, 4 mil+ views on youtube.
      That’s more views than all the discographies of those rappers you dicksaddle – combined.

  • SonOfSAM

    Chance is bullshittin’.

    • nah

      XXL’s freshmen class is bullshit

  • Crew’s Cunt Troll.

    It would be better for you to pray for Chance’s coming EP with Gambino and stop giving a fuck about dat fucking XXL.

  • Deejhay Daz-One

    This nonsense shouldn’t be allowed any type of pass

  • Mitch

    Jarren Benton and Jon Connor (he killed “The Good”) were the only good things about this tape. Everything else was really average. Good thing these tracks are basically throwaways they gave to DJ Drama to shout over for promotion…

    Connor is still way too underrated

  • Pizza Steve

    Isaiah had some dope shit on there, Jarren Benton too, but that Jon Conner “The Good” tho?? Dam, that man hungry!

  • ILLY

    kinda dug the vic mensa track. it’s stylistic.

  • fonzo517

    jon connor>

  • SonSon

    This entire list just feels like a huge reach..I can understand Quan and Chance being there because of buzz. Gates, Connor, and Benton actually have talent..but the rest of them? smfh…

  • HansGruber

    I still don’t understand how Vince Staples didn’t make thre Freshman list!
