XXL Unveils Freshman Class 2013

XXL Freshman Class 2013

It’s that time of the year again. XXL magazine has revealed the up-and-coming artists on its annual Freshman Class list.

Among this year’s chosen 10 are some names that you may already be familiar with including Trinidad Jame$, Kirko Bangz, Angel Haze, and two TDE signees, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul.

Chief Keef, who released his Interscope debut Finally Rich last year, has been named the “11th Freshman.”

The list is always a hot topic of debate. After Iggy Azalea made last year’s cover, her rival Azealia Banks put her on blast.

2012’s Freshman Class has produced some successful alums including Future, Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, and Roscoe Dash.

See who made this year’s list and weigh in with your thoughts.

    @REAL SH!T,

    Action Bronson ? Oh don’t mind him, he’s just one of the best damn emcees in the world. Do you listen to artists who do not necessarily come from the usual medias ? You know the ones that shove artists, songs & movements down your throat. Step out of that flock of sheep and you might see differently. Bronson is f*ckin dope. He’s 29 BTW and it’s true that he was a Freshman perhaps last year or 2 years ago.
