Varsity Club: Freshman 15 (www.ivlent.com)

I.V. League
"This is the 12 Monkeys album that didn't happen," says one of Varsity Club's dozen all-star rhymers on the intro to this compilation of arena-ready hip-hop tracks. These A-team Cleveland rappers mix book smarts, street knowledge, and studio expertise. The disc collects cuts from duos Edotkom and Rime Royal, upcoming double-threat Play Havoc, and scene favorite Spittin Image. The tracks are dark, the beats are lively, and the atmosphere is hazy. "They forgot who was runnin' this shit, doin' the thing," the group raps. Keep the records coming, and we won't have the chance to forget again.
