Managers play a pivotal role in an artist’s career. As a manager, you are responsible for the business side of things, but it also means finding talent in unlikely places and believing in an artist's success through the tough times when things aren't quite working out and believing in their talent and work ethic. There’s a certain level of staying on top of things that comes with the job description, which often leads to bigger opportunities and notoriety in the future. In the case of the managers of our XXL Freshmen 2014 Class, each of these individuals has overseen the careers of their artists and watched them grow into promising hip-hop stars. We caught up with 10 of the 12 managers who have been by their side since the beginning, to get an idea of what it is like to fight for a spot on the cover. Salute the hustlers behind the scenes, too. —Eric Diep, Miranda Johnson, Emmanuel C.M. and Dan Rys

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
