The XXL Freshman Class edition is out, and like always it has social media talking.
XXL’s Freshman Class issue highlights up and coming rappers who are the ones to watch. It’s basically the new rapper stamp of approval that industry professionals feel that they will be the next big artists in hip hop.
In the past, artists like Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, and J Cole all had the pleasure of making the Freshman cover; and they did indeed go on to make big names for themselves in the industry.
One of this year’s standouts is XXXTentacion. He’s a Florida native, and he’s even accused Drake of stealing some of his rap style.
A couple months ago while interviewing Kyle, we talked about his hit song, I Spy, and about how bad he wanted to be on the list. Luckily, Kyle’s wish came true, and he actually made it.
Kevin Kon also recently interviewed MadeInTokyo, who also made this year’s list.
Who’s your current favorite new rapper?
