XXL Freshmen 2014 Cyper Part 1: Kevin Gates, Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, August Alsina, and Isaiah Rashaad overview

Yes, it was a lack luster performance. Chance used his verse from “Home Studio”. Isaiah Rashaad was lack luster. Kevin Gates was subpar. It seemed each rapper recycled each other’s verse. August Alsina gave the cypher a chorus, which was different but still satisfactory. Oh yeah Vic Mensa was on there… Yeah it’s better if we just forget him.

This group has so much potential, it’s scary. You can tell they were having fun with this performance.  Also you expect more from these rappers. Where is the fight? Where is the Hunger? Are we really at a point in hip hop that you can be put on multiple magazine covers and sign to a record label, have almost a million followers on Twitter and think that they “made it”?
