The 2017 freshman class of rap has been revealed but of course, not everybody is happy about it. There is always controversy when it comes to the annual magazine cover because it reps the upper echelon of the rookies. There are names you'll recognize and others will leave you scratching your head.
90% of the 2017 #XXLFreshmen list is comprised of artists who have already charted on the Billboard Hot 100. It's old news.— I'm Gary (@noyokono) June 13, 2017
Furthermore, ain't no damn way Kap G was supposed to make it over Famous Dex.. and this coming from someone who hates Dex music #XXLFreshmen— 2Easi (@2EASl) June 13, 2017
I say let's reserve judgment until the annual cypher is released.
