XXL Magazine has released their 2015 Freshman Class, which highlight’s hip-hop’s new stars to watch debuted with a few familiar faces . Dej Loaf, Fetty Wap, Tink, OG Maco to name a few graced the newly released cover that is on stands now.
This is the first time the magazine has debuted two female artist on the cover , and the two artists Dej Loaf and Tink rightfully belong there. The popularity of the “Freshman Class” has died of the last couple of years, but the debate about if they made the right decision about which artists should be on it still reigns supreme. I think they got it right, but could have left one or two people off the cover (they shall remain nameless).
XXL is expected to drop freestyles from each individual pick, along with the group’s cyber, which will be hosted, as usual, by DJ Drama.
If you want to catch the artists on the cover performing together on one stage, you can pick up your tickets to their performance in New York City at the Best Buy Theater on Tuesday, June 30, as well as in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater on Monday, July 13.
