XXL Freshmen 10 (Hip-Hop’s Class Of 09 Attacks) Mixtape Is Fake

So only a few days after we announced XXL’s Freshmen 10 mixtape, which has yet to be titled by the way, some guy named Jesse over at Getrightmusic, decided to leak a tape entitled, The 10 Freshmen (Hip-Hop’s Class Of 09 Attacks).

The only thing is, the mixtape is bogus, a fake, a phony, a pussy, a Stan. Ok, that didn’t make any sense. Anywho, the tape isn’t even finished. To date, we’ve only leaked one track, Asher Roth’s “The Reading,” for streaming only. Ironically, that site can’t even get its music right. We did make the acapella available for download as part of a producer contest.  Shoot! The homie Eskay had the z-share on nahright and that site still didn’t put it on the mixtape.

Instead, the tape features previously released songs from the Freshmen 10, ripped versions of our Seminar Series and homemade mashups. Our tape (the real one) features a bunch of never heard before exclusives from all 10 freshmen. I mean, if Jesse really wants to get down, he can always submit a beat to Asherxxl@gmail.com for that Asher Roth “The Reading” remix. You could end up on the compilation, dude. We appreciate the promotion, but for anybody checking for the actual mixtape, stay tuned. It’s coming soon. -Jackpot

PS: Our art department never would have let us use that low budget photoshop cover.

    I mean that list is cool but my question is where is Skyzoo? To me he’s killing majority of those people on the cover and has one of biggest buzz in Hip-Hop we’ve seen in awhile.

    • IMLEIGHTON

    And I was impressed by Asher’s “The Reading” too. I’m anticipating his release. I might have to whip up a beat for his song.

      I don’t like none of em. i like Kid Cudi and Thats about it.

        you on point about pretty much everything, aside from Kid Cudi. Niggas a beast..check out “A Kid Named Cudi” the mixtape. Besides that, I would’ve the loved to see the knux, cool kids, and glc on here too. Max B is That wavy nigga! But he’s 30 years old. Not quite a freshman..

        • FlapJack

          Thanks. i’ll check him out..

      Yea, You could check out Wyld Stylaz

      Drake is starting to get his shine, but he’s another one that shulda been on that list!

  • Phil

    Who the Truth is on that cover:

    1. Cory Gunz: I patiently await this young Jedi’s debut and continue to cop the tapes. Undeniable talent and skill.

    2. BLU: This cat surprised the hell outta me with the BLU & Exile album. By far one my fastest faves since Jay Electronica (who I am not surprised is not on this cover, dude is mad reclusive)

    3. Wale: gotta support the home team. Nuff said. DMV stand up.

    4. Asher Roth: I can’t front on the dude. He’s not lying about nothing about himself or his life or his love for Hip-Hop and dedication to being his own MC. The mixtape was entertaining, hands down, and that’s what being in this business is about. All the love/hate talk is exactly what every/any new MC could want in starting a career, lol.

    5. Charles Hamilton: I want to give this cat a chance. Just got his new one, “The L Word”. We can mos def relate on taste in women. lol

    6. Mickey Factz: I want to give this guy a chance, too…

    7. Kid Cudi: I am curious, may have to dig some songs up.

    8. Uhhh, the rest–Currensy, Ace Hood. Hm. Ace. Hood. NYET, compadre. You’re wasting a lot of Def Jam’s reserve money. Currensy? I have no reason whatsover to even remember this cat’s name.

    • dan

      i agree with everything you said and i don’t understand how currensy made it but not drake

  • http://hiphoponmymind.blogspot.com/ DJ Daddy Mack

    LOL WOW. DUDES TAKING L’S.

  • BIGNAT

    OKAY CUDI IS COOL I SEE HIM MAKING IT BIG. SAME THING FOR CURRENCY I THINK HE GOT A GOOD RUN FOR IT. I WANNA ROOT FOR CORY GUNZ BUT COME ON WHEN I TELL MY NIGGAS TO CHECK OUT SOME OF HIS SHIT THEY HATE IN ADVANCE. WALE NOT FEEDING INTO THE HYPE BASICALLY THE SAME THING FOR ASHER ROTH.
    BLU AND MICKEY FACTZ I NEED TO HEAR MORE OF THERE STUFF. CHARLES HAMILTON HE DOES GOOD STUFF BUT I THINK HE CAN DO BETTER. ACE HOOD I THINK HE GOING GOLD HIS FIRST ALBUM HE DOWN WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. EVEN THOUGH HE IS FAR FROM THE BEST RAPPER ON THIS LIST. NOW WE COME TO B.O.B SOMETIMES HE MAKE SOME CLASSIC SHIT AND SOMETIMES HE MAKES GARBAGE. IT’S LIKE IT’S NOT EVEN THE SAME PERSON. HE NEEDS TO DROP A MIXTAPE NO GUEST JUST 10 12 SONGS THAT WAY WE CAN SEE IF THIS IS A REPEATING PATTERN.

  • Chris Mac

    Stop wit this freshman crap. The only reason any of these catz is on the cover is because the guys wit the talent and a chance to go far are to busy puttin in work in the industry to do a cover. Everyone of these emcee’s has HUGE weak points. Each of the seminars licked my taint. Ace Hood the worst of them all is the only one that held it down in that area. Lets see some articles bout mc’s that fuckin matter. Not this Factrothhamilton mash up. This’ll be the only xxl i wont pick up aside from the one wit g-unit. To support the artists on the cover is supporting the murder of hip hop.

    • beast.in.reality

      your a lame ass nigga….this shit support…its, in my opinion, feedin hip hop…

  • bbbones

    kid cudi – day n night (crookers remix)

  • THAT DUDE

    Except for B.O.B. the rest of these cat’s ain’t gonna make no real noise!!

    Cory Gunz been had all the connects in the world but he still got the same flow and dumb ass name.

    Asher Roth might do work for the obvious reasons and I can’t even bring myself to speak on the rest.

    THE SOURCE fell off at the end but for a long time UNSIGNED HYPE meant something.I like XXL for article’s and what not but I’ve never respected your album ratings or choice of whose NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nice

    Charles Hamilton rips its. he freestyles off the head better than anyone of em. Corey Gunz is one fast mother fucker, but a lot of his lyrics dont make sense…Asher Roth and Kid Cudi did a great freestyle together on DJ Enuff on Youtube. look it up. Wale is very talented, but if u think he’s better than Lupe…you should be ashamed of yourself. Blu is real chill and spits well. B.o.B. verrrry nice. Ace Hood did alright on that Cypher with Juelz, Fab, and Jada. but other than that he needs to step away from Officer Ricky. Lastly Currency, dont be like Lil Wayne. please.

    • Bloggy Bloggenstein

      I don’t dig Asher Roth at all, and haven’t heard the rhyme you’re quoting, but “Allen Iverson” and “Hakeem Olajuwon” rhyme just as much as “Bonita Applebum” and “ya gotta put me on.” That’s part of the problem with emcees today, they’re on some simple-simon, “cat, bat, rat” monosyllabic rhyme scheme shit and not trying to use vocabulary in a creative way. Words that are made up of multiple syllables rhyme. And if you’re a creative emcee you can MAKE words rhyme by freaking your delivery. “Iverson” and “Olajuwon” rhyme.

  • http://djhowiethemixxiya.blogspot.com DJ Howie “The Mixxiya”

    Okay, I agree with some of y’all but I don’t agree with everyone. Here’s my rundown about the XXL Freshman of ’09:

    Ace Hood: Nice flow on some tracks, lyrics on the other-hand have nothing to contribute that’s different from radio garbage.
    Blu: Nice flow, different style & interesting lyrics and beat choices for his mixtapes and underground albums. An artist I believe doesn’t need mainstream buzz ’cause he’s great underground.
    B.o.B: My favorite outta the list of rappers. Got an OutKast feel to his style of rapping. Big fan of the guy, can’t wait for Debut.
    Charles Hamilton: Ups and downs on his style, if you listen to his 08 and 09 material you’ll see a difference. 08 Hamilton was better.
    Asher Roth: I give props to the dude for bein real. No he ain’t a gangsta nor a dancer nor the next eminem, he’s a college boy that loves rap.
    Wale: Dude is nice on the mic. Differnet style which is good.
    Curren$y: Sounds like Wayne, which I dis-approve of. Next.
    Cory Gunz: Very fast spitter, but he’s not a Bone-Thug (lyrics make sense with them) so I don’t pay much attention to him.
    Kid Cudi: Had a nice single, other than that I like his originality on most of his tracks.
    Mickey Factz: Another favorite of mine. Gotta listen to more of his material but when I heard Heaven’s Fallout I’ve been a fan

    I think that’s it

    • beast.in.reality

      yo kidd thats da best opinion anyone had put down on this shit…its too bias in my opinion but you was on point.

  • Mikel

    no really… where’s j. cole?

    • http://djhowiethemixxiya.blogspot.com DJ Howie “The Mixxiya”

      I’m replyin to Mikel, I’m goin off of XXL’s choice for Freshman of 2009.
      Now when you mention artists like J. Cole and Drake they are also exceptional. Now Drake was nice as hell when So Far Gone dropped and I expect no commercial garbage on his debut. And J. Cole is in a world of his own, he blew my mind when I heard the Come Up and the Warm Up.

      That’s why J. Cole’s gonna be in the 2010 Freshman pics for XXL comin out in March. Idk about Drake, he’s already had a humongous buzz before the freshman of 2009 did so he might not need for XXL to spot him as a Freshman ya know?

  • MusicMan

    Yoo Big Sean & J.Cole Definitly shoulda made it yo.Drake to me can only rap when he’s depressed. Wale | Asher | B.o.B | Currency | Kid Cudi | & Charles Hamilton big ups keep up wat yall ben doin’…I haven’t really listened to Mickey Factz | Hood | Cory Gunz | or Blu but i heard good things so to me this is by far the Dopest Class Ever to me.

      Nah Drake is wack. He’s like a Lil Wayne clone. B.o.B raps about real stuff, and Drake seriously raps about nothing. He raps about how cool he is. It’s the same in all his songs. I don’t dislike Drake. He’s good at that and it’s fun to listen to sometimes, but it’s not good good. It’s not B.o.B good.

    KID CUDI (AWESOME TO BLOW BUD TOO) AND WALE (BROUGHT BACK THE GO-GO AND PUT D.C BACK ON THE MAP) ARE MY TWO FAV FRESHMEN! b.O.b IS GONNA TOP THE CHARTS IF HE KEEPS IT UP.

  • OfficialDeejayW

    B.o.B is the best on the list. I was listening to him even before “Nothin’ On You” and his album. “B.o.B v.s. Bobby Ray” and “May 25th” are both hot mixtapes, and same goes for everything else he puts out.

    Wale is dope too. Sometimes he sounds tha same on all his songs, but he’s got good stuff you should check out. “Wale Dance” and “TV In The Radio” are both good ones to check out… K’Naan should be on this list too in my opinion.

    Charles Hamilton is awesome. Check out “I Hate Parties” and “Windows Media Player”. Only problem is he talks to much sh-t and is a little cocky and has some beef with Wale, but tha dude can rap.

    Asher Roth and Kid Cudi are both pretty good… They’re decent at least, but not my favorites.

    As for the rest… Ehhh… and ACE HOOD? Why’s he here? Haha and thank goodness Drake isn’t on here. He spits wackness and fakeness. The guys I mentioned keep it real.
