XXL Magazine Debuts 2014 Freshman Class

2014 Freshman Class
XXL

Class is in session! XXL magazine unveils the lineup for its Freshman 2014 cover. This year, two R&B singers are included much to the chagrin of devoted rap heads.

This year’s “Dirty Dozen” includes rappers Isaiah Rashad, Jon Connor, Lil Bibby, Jarren Benton, Kevin Gates, Lil Durk, Rich Homie Quan, Chance the Rapper, Troy Ave, Vic Mensa and R&B newcomers Ty Dolla $ign and August Alsina.

As usual with these types of lists, reactions have been both congratulatory and critical.

“There’s always going to snubs for the XXL freshman cover, but this year, I think they did a good job,” tweeted one fan, while another commented, “XXL ain’t do enough digging for the freshman list. All those guys have been rapping for 3 years plus. Chance got snubbed in 2012.”

Some are also wondering why such artists like G Eazy, Young Thug, Casey Veggies, Vince Staples and many others didn’t make the cut.

We must also mention that there isn’t a female rapper on this year’s list. C’mon XXL, you couldn’t find one female artist to grace the cover?

Who do you think should’ve appeared on XXL Magazine’s 2014 Freshman cover? Tell us in the comments below.
