2018 XXL Freshman Class

Every year I pretend to be done with this list, but here I am, reporting on it, again ... and here you are, reading it as well ... Probably after saying you don't give a f-bomb about the list. 


Yesterday (June 12), hip-hop magazine, XXL unveiled their 2018 freshman class. This cover used to mean something but not anymore. More so when you consider the fact that more than half the names featured each year end up becoming Irrelevant (I really hate that word by the way). 

The graduating class for the 11th edition includes YBN Nahmir, Lil Pump, Blocboy JB, Dreamville's J.I.D, Smokepurp, Ski Mask The Slump Dog, Stefflon Son, Trippie Redd, WifisfuneralWifisfuneral and Lil Skies (who reportedly refused to attend the photo shoot).

Like they do every year, XXL will release freestyles, cyphers, individual interviews and roundtable discussions from the 2018 Freshmen class in the coming weeks. Each artist featured on the cover will be performing at the XXL Freshman showcase on July 11 in New York City, which would be followed by a Los Angeles show on July 19. Tickets for the event can be purchased here and here.
