What Do You Think Of XXL’s Freshmen List?

So I think we can all agree that Tuesdays release of the XXL Freshmen cover was the most disappointing since they started the list in 2008. We all have our own opinions on the subject but personally we believe they didn’t quite meet the expectations this year. Not trying to play XXL, we feel that they have been consistently accurate with only a few exceptions over the previous four years. This year however, there are only a couple of emcees that we believe undoubtedly earned their spot on the cover. Nothing against the other eight or so artists but with the burst of excessive talent out right now and coming up in the game, I can think of at least 10 dudes off the dome that deserve to be included. One being A$AP Rocky, who I do know was asked to be on the cover this year but turned it down. Shouts to XXL on that, but what about all of these other dudes doing their thing right now? This being said, we are going to drop a list of our own tonight (March 1st) that we have been carefully putting together, which we believe more accurately represents the best group of emcees making a buzz and coming up in the game. Keep a look out for the list and let us know what you think.
