XXL has released the "2012 XXL Freshman Mixtape," hosted by DJ Whoo Kid. Obviously, it features French Montana and Machine Gun Kelly, who were featured on the magazine's annual "Freshman" cover. Diddy and Red Cafe also appear.

Diddy makes his presence felt on three separate skits, the "Intro" with Whoo Kid, "MGK Skit" and "Laced Up Tatoo Skit." In those last two skits, he discusses the rapper's talent and whether or not he'll get a "Lace Up" tattoo, respectively. MGK's "One Time (Freestyle)" and "Wild Boy (Remix)" are included in the 23 track set.

French Montana contributes a new track, "Maybach Bad Boy" and the previous released "Killaz Theme" with Chinx Drugz. Two remixes of "Shot Caller" are also included. For the first, Whoo Kid took some previous released unofficial remixes by Young Jeezy and Tony Yayo and merged them into a single track. For the second, he merges both official remixes, creating a megamix that features Diddy, Rick Ross, Jadakiss, Styles P, Red Cafe, Fat Joe and Uncle Murda.
