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.

Tink & Charlamagne Tha God “Around The Clock”

The latest from Tink and Timbaland is the new video for “Around The Clock”, which no doubt has an addicting beat from the latter. The sound matches the clock theme and Tink puts it down with some clever references throughout (that Dwight Howard one…) with Charlamagne Tha God contributing as well. Watch and see above as DGainz is behind the lens.

Tink f/ Charlamagne Tha God “Around The Clock”

Yup, Charlamagne’s on it, but no, he’s not rapping. Instead it’s some deep quotables from the radio personality that kick off the song with Tink handling the rapping duties. It’s over a minimal production from Timbaland, who concludes the recording telling the Breakfast Club that Tink’s album is one of the best he’s done since Aaliyah’s. Dang. We shall see…
