XXL 2015 Freshman Class

XXL’s 2015 Freshman Class is revealed as the annual issue brings about the annual debate and highlights the up and comers from the rap scene that are prime for a big year.

This year’s class: DeJ Loaf, Fetty Wap, GoldLink, K Camp, OG Maco, Raury, Shy Glizzy, Tink, Vince Staples and Kidd Kidd.

Tink reppin’ for the Chi. Any surprises? Kidd Kidd? K Camp? They’re both trending at the moment in Chicago.

My personal favorite of the group: Raury. Lookin’ forward to what’s next for the young Indigo Child outta ATL.

G-Unit Reunion Documentary (Full)

G-G-G-G-G-Unit!

I, like many, loved that circa 10 years ago. And I, like many, were surprised as hell to see G-Unit reuniting this summer when it was pretty public that all have gone their separate ways. But hey, much like any rock band disbands, then reunites, there’s a new level of appeal and intrigue that comes with the latter. G-Unit’s first Beauty of Independence EP showed that and they have another one soon on the way with The Beast is G-Unit. You can hear their latest track, “All About The Money” — new verses over Troy Ave.’s original, below… and watch the 2-part, 1.5 hour documentary if you get the chance as well.
