XXL is an American hip hop magazine, published by Townsquare Media, founded in 1997. Beginning in 2007, XXL released its annual Top 10 Freshman list. This issue features ten artists-to-watch, all appearing on the cover of the magazine. The list has a history of showcasing unknown/underground rappers, as well as artists considered to be on the rise. Here they are:
- A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie
- PnB Rock
- Playboi Carti
- Kap G
- Ugly God
For hip hop fans everywhere, this list always causes a good amount of controversy due to overwhelming support for certain artists. Some artists people say should’ve been on there include Famous Dex, NBA YoungBoy, Ski Mask, and Rich Chigga.
OGC’s biggest question is: where is Jake Paul? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Thank you Ugly God.
