XXL just came out with the nominees for this years Freshman 10. With so many big names and probably the best class to date, it’s pretty much impossible to find a 10 that you won’t be happy with. Clink the link below to head on over to XXL and vote for your favorite freshman.
Now that that’s out of the way, I wanted to drop off a couple tracks that I haven’t been able to post and make it into a Hip Hop Round Up. Click the jump below to listen and download the tracks. Trust me, you probably don’t want to miss these. READ ON >>

YONAS has made waves lately with his remixes nobody has been able to touch. Most notably, our favorite Bronx street preacher flipped Foster The People’s chart topping hit, “Pumped Up Kicks”, which is on the brink of breaking 2,000,000 hits on YouTube. While YONAS’ attack has been rather stealth over the past few years, he’s beginning to garner the recognition he deserves with love from some of the most respected hip-hop sites such as XXL. Continuing with his string of amazing sampled tracks, Y-O brings it back to the blueprint and delivers a filthy new track over The Glitch Mob’s “Drive It Like You Stole It” which will act as the second single off his upcoming project. Consider this a verbal warning as YONAS shares a lesson on how to “Drive It Like It’s Stolen”. The Transition mixtape coming June 25th!
“This is not Mac Miller, this is that much iller, this is R.I.P. hipsters, I’m a backpack killer” – YONAS

He be that “Pretty MuthaF***a”. Breaking from his usual stoner beats, Harlem native A$AP Rocky hits us with this banger. Although the beat is upbeat he still finds ways to incorporate those common Houston influences. I think this might be my favorite track by A$AP, and that’s saying something, especially with all those Clams Casino beats on Live,Love,A$AP. Expect more from Rocky, especially with him being nominated for that XXL freshman.

Wayne’s opening verse didn’t do much for me, but the goddess known as Jenifer Lopez makes up for it.

The eerie background violin is the perfect touch to this track.

I know it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from R. Kelly, but this track is actually real solid.
The XXL freshman goes in over T.I. and Eminem’s That’s All She Wrote.
