Mac Miller is the latest to drop an XXL Freshman Freestyle. Make sure you check out http://uristocrat.com/2013/05/lauryn-hill-will-perform-at-the-music-hall-of-williamsburg-in-brooklyn/ freestyle from yesterday.
Being a XXL Freshman [means] people know that I’m not a nobody, that I’m doing something right and that also opens a lot of doors to work with other artists, new up-and-comers and dudes that have been in the game for a minute. People are going to see me on this cover and say I wonder what he’s about, let me check him out. And then it’s more opportunities to work with people based on the fact that I’ve reached that point and someone can be like well he’s doing something because he’s on the XXL cover.
