WHO Are The 2016 XXL Freshman?


It’s that time of the year again. XXL has released their Freshman cover and the internet is in a frenzy, like usual. The majority of comments and conversations I am seeing sound like this.

“I can’t name one person on this list.”
“What is a Lil Dicky?”
“All these dudes sound the same.”

Now, this piece isn’t to give our 2 cents on the choices made, but to showcase each artist’s music and let you make a decision on if it’s dope or not.
