It’s that time again. XXL releases their annual list (and cover) on who they think is the hottest upcoming rappers of the year.

Lil’ Uzi Vert
You know what? This isn’t a terrible list. I only fuck with half the people on the list and as an old man, that’s a pretty good average. Shout out to Lil’ Herb G Herbo, Lil’ Dicky, Dave East, Anderson .Paak, & Kodak Back. Behind-the-Scenes look at the 2016 XXL Freshman Class cover shoot below.
