Isaiah Rashad returns to pay tribute to the greatest of all St. Lunatics.
Blessed with gratuitous shout outs from Mr. Thanksgiving, XXL drops its Freshman Mixtape, which might be the best freshman mixtape yet — partially due to new two new tracks apiece from Isaiah Rashad and Kevin Gates. Lil Bibby has a pair on here too. Basically, everyone but Chance who was told by James Blake that […]
