XXL revealed their 2014 Freshman Class today and it’s full of recognizable names. The list consists of Chance The Rapper, Rich Homie Quan, Isaiah Rashad, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Durk, Kevin Gates, Troy Ave, Vic Mensa, Lil Bibby, Jon Connor, Jarren Benton (People’s Choice) and August Alsina. They switched things up and added R&B to this year’s list and I’m ok with that. I’m gonna go ahead and endorse Chance, Vic, August, Isaiah, and Jon Connor. I’ll continue my regular routine and pretend all the other artists don’t exist. Even though I don’t mess with anything Lil Durk does, it’s good to see four Chicago artists on the list. Can’t wait for the cyphers and roundtables. Enjoy.
