2018 XXL Freshman Class

The 2018 XXL Freshman Class has finally arrived. Now in its 11th year, the Freshman franchise has exploded into popularity over the past decade thanks to the internet, social media and, more importantly, the hip-hop fans.

Every year, the XXL Freshman Class comes together the same way as when it first started. XXL talks to everyone they possibly can—industry tastemakers, rappers, their friends, fellow hip-hop heads, the guy working at the corner store, whoever—to get their input on who they think should be picked for the class. Then they argue it out as a staff and narrow down the list.

This year’s Freshman Class includes Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Ski Mask The Slump God, Miami’s Lil Pump, Miami’s Smokepurpp, Atlanta’s J.I.D, London’s Stefflon Don, Memphis’ BlocBoy JB, Birmingham, Alabama’s YBN Nahmir, West Palm Beach’s Wifisfuneral and Canton, Ohio’s Trippie Redd. The 10th Spot winner was Waynesboro, Pa.’s Lil Skies who unfortunately refused to attend the shoot after originally accepting the offer. Continue reading “2018 XXL Freshman Class”
