You’ve been fortunate to be around veterans like T.I. at Grand Hustle Records and Nas, who you toured with. What are the greatest lessons they’ve taught you?

More than a month ago, XXL magazine released their most talked about cover of the year, the Freshman Class cover. This year’s class as every other year was debated, argued, praised, hated, and loved. Regardless of what you thought of these young new rappers, the buzz that comes along with the cover is certainly present. There were a couple of freestyle cyphers that dropped a few weeks ago and now we finally have the mixtape featuring original music from every member of the class.
