XXL has unveiled its 4th annual Freshmen cover. They did you one better this year by endorsing 10 + 1 MCs.

It goes…

Kendrick Lamar
Cyhi da Prynce
Big K.R.I.T.
Fred the Godson
Lil Twist
Mac Miller
Lil B
Meek Mill
Diggy Simmons

I’m on XXL’s payroll, so I can’t really sling mud. That said, this Freshman Class is hot garbage. I can’t believe they forgot Ream tha Paper Boy and Rusty Ass Chains. That’s a shame. I would’ve definitely liked to see MC Wiggle Datas and Lil’ Booty Sweat on the list. What a truly awful lineup.



Rizoh is the most powerful man in all the lands. He lives in Houston where he earned a BS in Nerf Herding. He's the founder of The Rap Up, the former editor of, and is in the Grammy-awaiting band Pervertable Disciples.

  1. I’m glad that Yelawolf and Fred the godson are on it, i can’t say much about the rest.

  2. Yeah Yela’s the only dude that has potential, they should have Hoodie Allen in it, he’s white but the kids got potential better than Asher Roth and he made it

  3. nobody had any love for big k.r.i.t. or kendrick? are you fuckin kidding me.

  4. LOL! Cracking up @ Rusty Ass Chains!

    There are some good picks among them but XXL is seriously sleeping on Odd Future. Regardless of what you think of that click you can’t deny those dudes are garnering some heavy buzz. Come on, they’ve even included Lil B, but no Tyler?

  5. LMAO @ Fred The Godson’s whole career and image.
