13:07 2021. by Grant Tittle. XXL Magazine has had a major influence in the rap genre through its annual list, known as the XXL Freshman Class. For those who don’t know, the list is a pairing of 10 or more rappers who are unknown, underground and/or considered potential superstars.
What is the best XXL freshman list?
2019 – Comethazine, Tierra Whack, DaBaby, Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch, YBN Cordae, YK Osiris, Rico Nasty, Gunna, Megan Thee Stallion and Blueface. 2019 was a very top-heavy year and it remains to be seen how well the artists of XXL will stand the test of time and so it’s difficult to place the year any higher than this.
