Each year, some of the best up and coming MC’s of our choosing gets to represent XXL’s Freshman Class. Fortunately, it’s that time of the year again. In 2016, XXL picked rappers Desiigner, Dave East, Denzel Curry, G Herbo, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Dicky, Lil Yachty, Anderson .Paak, 21 Savage and Kodak Black–whom automatically became “the new wave” for Hip-Hop culture.
A few of the MC’s currently in the running for 2017’s class includes:
Cardi B—who’s received a lot of shine for Gangsta Bitch Music Vol.2.
The very dope Princess Nokia.
Noname Gypsy, Playboi Carti and 070 Shake are additional names on the roster. As the voting deadline approaches, XXL is looking for their tenth contender. Your favorite MC could possibly be the new sh*t in the next coming weeks–making now the most important time to vote.
