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

Dr Dre trillions
Now that Dr. Dre is flirting with becoming the very first billionaire hip-hop has ever produced, it's time for rappers to turn their minds to the next goal—that's right, trillions. And as rappers are known for being ahead of the curve when talking about their money, we've already got a good collection of songs that reference the 12 zeroes that fall into that price range. Not surprisingly—with recycled or referential rhymes reaching as far back as the earliest hip-hop songs—much of the lyrical boasts stem from Kanye's "Swagger Like Us" opening line—"Mr. West is in the buildin'/Swagger on a hundred thousand trillion"—but we didn't let that count against anybody. On your marks, get set, brag. —Dan Rys
