After months of anticipation, XXL is proud to present the long-awaited 2017 XXL Freshman Class, featuring Kamaiyah, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, PnB Rock, Madeintyo, Playboi Carti, Aminé, Kap G, Kyle, Ugly God and 10th Spot winner XXXTentacion.
Hip-hop-inspired musicals are nothing new, but Lin-Manuel Miranda changed the game with his Broadway play, 'Hamilton.' Now the rapping thespian is continuing his momentum with 'The Hamilton Mixtape' featuring rap’s biggest names.
With Meek Mill's next album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, being arguably one of the most anticipated rap releases in the game right now, it only makes sense that the Philly rapper would appear on the cover of XXL's spring issue.
Now that XXL's 10th Spot has ended, we thought it'd be a good time to make our own predictions on which rappers -- and singers -- are deserving to be included in the 2015 XXL Freshmen class. Did your favorite new jack make the list? Check out our selections.
