XXL Reveals 2019 Freshman Class

The XXL Freshman Class is always a list we all look forward to. They have a pretty solid lineup this year as well as mostly everybody on the list has had major success in the past 18 months or so.


So who all made the list for their 12th cover? It’s East Saint Louis, Ill.’s Comethazine, Philadelphia’s Tierra Whack, Charlotte, North Carolina’s DaBaby, Seattle’s Lil Mosey, Compton’s Roddy Ricch, Suitland, Md.’s YBN Cordae, Jacksonville, Fla.’s YK Osiris, Largo, Md.’s Rico Nasty, Atlanta’s Gunna, Houston’s Megan Thee Stallion and the 10th Spot winner, Los Angeles’ Blueface.


This is quite a well deserved list, we must say. Over the next few weeks, XXL will be unveiling solo interviews, freestyles, cyphers and roundtable discussions featuring the artists on the cover. Watch a promo video below.
