New mixtape from one of the hottest younger MCs from the South right now. Big KRIT was a 2011 XXL Freshman Class member and spent last year dropping incredible mixtapes with smooth, laid back instrumentals and the lyrics to match. Listening to this really is a flashback to the country southern rapper greats of all-time. KRIT is truly a on the path towards being a true southern hip-hop legend and the anticipation for a debut full length LP grows even more. Until then, we enjoy the incredible original music KRIT continues to release to the fans for free. I don’t see any hip-hop fan having a problem with that at all.

- Roscoe Dash
- Kid Ink
- Machine Gun Kelly
- Danny Brown
- French Montana

Although this list doesn’t guarantee the success of these youngsters (Lil B, OJ da Juiceman) it does put them with likes of such successful acts as J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Nipsey Hussle (2010 Class members), Mac Miller, Yelawolf, Lil Twist, Kenderick Lamar, Diggy Simmons, Meek Mill, & Big KRIT (2011 Class members). You may notice the absence of ASAP Rocky, possibly the biggest new name in hip hop. Well, that seems to be his own doing. Keep and eye out for the XXL 2012 Freshman Class Mixtape and until then bump the 2011 and 2010 tapes. There has already been tons of critical response to this list; both positive and negative.
