On Being a 2011 XXL Freshman: “It means a lot to me to be on the cover this year, because last year I thought I deserved to make it. But the more I think about it, I know I wasn’t really ready yet. I’m really going to step everything up in the next 365 days. And this is, like, one of the biggest shots in my life right now. I have mixtape plans for killing every beat that’s out there in the street right now. I have plans to just take it to the next level and let them know this is that guy to look out for in 2011.

Every last one of them because if they were in the Freshman Class then evidently they were doing something right, they were making some type of good music. I haven’t really heard from the other guys since the shoot but I had hit up Mac Miller on Twitter a couple of times. Lil B—maybe. I respect them all. The round table was alright. It was kind of cool. It was a lot going on, but, really, I’m not a super talkative person in those types of situations. But, it all went well with me.
