If the term gatekeeper is still synonymous with DJ in hip-hop, then consider this new mixtape SXEW Vol. 1 a direct example of their power. The project links DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Skee, and DJ MLK, and they use their influence to bring together some of the biggest acts in rap under one roof. Listing all participants would leave the reader woozy, but here's a quick rundown: Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Raekwon, T.I., Nicki Minaj, Troy Ave, and Wale all make appearances here. Also included is the LL Cool J remix to Kid Ink's "Main Chick," which Complex premiered yesterday. Yeah, this mixtape is pretty special.
