2017 XXL Freshmen List by EVRYDY


The annual tradition of unveiling XXL’s Freshmen List is the hip-hop fan’s equivalent to Christmas Day: some will be incredibly enthused by their selections, others will feel dejected over neglected nominees. But without fail, the buzz surrounding the XXL Freshmen List generates a large discussion amongst the hip-hop community at-large. Historically, XXL selected a crew of up-and-coming artists that are featured on their highly-touted Freshmen edition cover.

2016 Freshman Class: Anderson .Paak, Dave East, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, Denzel Curry, Lil’ Dicky, Desiigner, Lil’Uzi Vert, G-Herbo & Lil’ Yatchy

With the recent uptick of the strong presence of social media, XXL quickly adapted to the times by reserving the 10th spot on this list for the winner of a fan vote that is chosen from the official list of candidates. In a similar format to last year’s post, the contributing Writers here at EVRYDY each pick our own 7 favorites from the entries of XXL 10th spot for 2017, (see the whole list of 10th spot nominees right here).
