Shout outs to YouHeardThatNew.com for posting these videos as they were extremely informative. While most viewers will probably just pull approval or disapproval from the XXL Freshman 2012 list, I think some key points regarding the state of the industry were touched on..and it’s a damn shame. In a nutshell…XXL and Hot 97 both agree that this list is not the end all be all of it and moreover, the selections are definitely questionable. The industry is feeding us a bunch of mess…and if you like mess…THIS IS AMERICA…do you…however..if you’re not with all this mess….support non-mess. Thoughts? Share and Enjoy.
