    XXL lost all credibility for making Lil B a freshmen.

  • Elijah

    It would be swagg if someone from oddfuture made an appearance on the mixtape

  • seth

    I like how mac miller is on here basically the most

  • AnteK

    … U know i was kinda hoping that this mixtape would feature some fun(/intresting collabos between the freschmen, witch didnt happen feelin kinda dissapointed…

    And second the only appereances from lil b are the cypher part (12 bars) and a song from a mixtape you previously posted .. and then the song in question is just 1.44 long .. U could at least made everyone of the freschmen contribue with 1 new song, I was hyped for this not anymore thoo

  • RJVA

    Kendrick Lamar, Big KRIT, the homie Meek Mill are the future stars. If you never heard that Ken Lamar “O.D.” best mixtape of 2010, get it asap.

  • Reks

    Lil B needs to step outta the music industry, Police the ONLY decent track by YG and it was leaked last summer. need some diggy, ya’ll whack as hell tryna get hype for this tape

  • http://www.getrightmusic.com Get Right Music

    Still will be a good mixtape download.

  • http://dopebox.net Bloo

    Did the tape drop? how was the show

  • Phella

    Mac miller probably the dopest ta me. kendick straight too. They all alright in one way or another. But I think more specifically. LIL B Garbo. Straight up. but whats funny is has more hits then any of these dudes. And then we hate on him the most because he wack which in turns makes him more popular. Which in turns make him more money. He is Wack as hell though. But i guess he got is own thing goin. You should go to youtube and search :BIG PHELLA DEC. This cat cold!
