After a few leaks, XXL finally reveals their 2018 Freshman Class. And yes, this year’s annual list could be looked as having an abundance of face tats & SoundCloud/mumble rap (There’s also like four rappers from Florida but let’s not get into that…). Whatever. Let’s breaks down the rappers that made the list this year:
Ski Mask The Slump God Fort Lauderdale, FL
Ski Mask The Slump God is one of those rappers where the name sounds familiar but I couldn’t name a song by him to save my life. Get ready for that running theme on this list.
J.I.D Atlanta, GA
It seems like J.I.D is the defacto lyrical rapper of this year’s class. He’s also probably the one I have listened to the most. And who doesn’t like “Lauder”?
Stefflon Don London
I wondered why I didn’t know who the hell Stefflon Don was. Especially with her being the lone female rapper on this list. Then I found out she was from London and now it makes sense. To be honest, I’m now kinda remembering that song she had with French Montana.
