xxl freshmen mixtapes

There’s a great deal of preparation that goes into choosing XXL Freshman. Research. Attending shows. Debates over whom are the hottest. However, sometimes the deciding factor is over who has the streets talking with their mixtapes.

Tapes are the best way to gauge how your music is doing. It’s a melting pot of your talents to showcase your progress, as well as who you align yourself with in the rap industry. A lot of the times, tapes that have an MC rapping over other people’s instrumentals catapulted them into the conversation of who’s next. Few of our Freshman picks like Jon Connor and Fashawn have made undeniable classics in the underground by jumping on beats rapped on by Jay Z and Nas.

There are plenty of tapes to choose from when highlighting the best mixtapes by XXL Freshman. Some rappers have year’s worth of mixtape before their debut albums, while others have made a dent in the rap game by having one extremely well received release. The formula for what a mixtape is these days keeps changing rapidly. To be clear though, Isaiah Rashad doesn’t have tape out, so he is excluded from this list. We still fuck with Cilvia Demo heavy.

So, with that said, from Lil Boosie to J. Cole, these are The 73 Best XXL Freshmen Mixtapes.—Complied By Eric Diep, Dan Rys, Marvin Jules And Jeffrey Whaley

The 73 Best XXL Freshmen Mixtapes

Maserati met cnn donald sterling
Maserati Met is a rapper and an apparent associate of disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was banned for life by the NBA last month after a leaked audio call with his girlfriend V. Stiviano caused an uproar due to Sterling's racist comments. Maserati spoke with Sterling on the phone for over an hour after the initial incident, and then himself leaked their conversation to the Daily Mail on Tuesday (May 15), in which Sterling denied being a racist, and instead laid the racism card at the feet of Stiviano. Not content with just leaking the audio, Maserati then went on CNN last night to discuss the tape and, going by the name Maseratimet, said he'd known Sterling for five or six years and ran an escort service in Las Vegas through which he would introduce Sterling to "light-skinned black women."

So we learned that Maserati, AKA Maseratimet, AKA Maseratiet, is a Vegas pimp with a small rap career who rubs shoulders with some of the monetary elite in Los Angeles—and is also not one to shy away from the spotlight whenever the opportunity arises. But who really is Mazi, and where did he come from? XXL has compiled everything we know about the rapper who just added a whole bunch of fuel to this already raging fire.
