XXL‘s 2011 Freshman MixtapePosted: March 24, 2011
As I previously mentioned, I was the the Freshman Showcase at BB Kings (in NYC) yesterday, and it was incredible. Kendrick, CyHi, and KRIT had the best performances, which came as no surprise to me. CyHi also brought out Big Sean & Pusha T, while Kendrick performed with Schoolboy Q, so that was dope. Mac Miller’s performance was cool too, and Fred The Godson held NY down by killing it (admittedly to my surprise). I hate to report, however, that Lil Twist and Diggy Simmons acted their age, and that is not really a good thing. I think Diggy will get better as the years pass (he just turned 16…), but at this point he sounds like Bow Wow in his “Like Mike” years. The only missing link from the show was LIL B BASED GOD!! Haha I actually thought his show would be entertaining, but apparently he had a previous commitment. Anyway, here is the tape that XXL put together with songs from each of the artists.
