2015’s XXL Freshman List was met with much disappointment outside of a few artists, but this year looks to be a strong outing freshman class. Going into 2016, we’ve seen multiple talents we’re ready to see blow up and take the scene with force, and we’ve also seen people who we thought had a great 2015 but didn’t make the last list looking to capitalize this year. XXL has released details that they are almost done with the final list and are going into the 10th man voting system they have done in the previous year. The 10th man list gives you 151 candidates to set forward for the 10th man. Names like Pro Era’s CJ Fly, Nyck Caution, and Kirk Knight to G Herbo, Jazz Cartier, Kodak Black, and Nef The Pharaoh. Here is XXL’s pitch for this years XXL Freshman List, “If you’re reading this, it’s not too late. After much debate, XXL’s selection of artists for the XXL Freshmen 2016 Class is almost a wrap. Now, it’s time for the fans to vote for who you want to see snag a spot on the front cover. The artist with the most votes, who has not already been selected by XXL for the list, will win the Freshmen 10th spot.” Along with this campaign, over on XXL’s YouTube, several artists’ 2016 Freshman pitch were released from the likes of Denzel Curry, YFN Lucci, Remy Boy Monty, Desiigner, and G Herbo.
