In XXL magazine’s ultra-expanded Freshmen roll-out, so comes the DJ Drama-helmed mixtape. While Chance The Rapper notably sat out the tape, other high-profile 2014 Freshmen including Isaiah Rashad (who is the only freshman this year who can claim a Top 40 album under his belt), Vic Mensa, and Jon Connor are among those who contributed original, previously-unreleased tracks.

If that’s enough, two Def Jam Records stars, 2 Chainz and Fabolous, feature on the tape, care of some of the rookies.
