2019 XXL Freshman Class revealed; NYC & LA shows announced

2019 XXL Freshman Class

The 12th annual XXL Freshman Class has been revealed, and the 2019 class includes Megan Thee Stallion, Tierra Whack, Rico Nasty, DaBaby, Blueface, YBN Cordae, Gunna, Comethazine, Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch, and YK Osiris.

As XXL writes, “The decision on which artists enter the XXL Freshman Class comes together the same way as when it first started. We talk to everyone we possibly can—industry tastemakers, rappers, our friends, fellow hip-hop heads, the guy working at the corner store, whoever—to get their input on who they think should be picked for the class. Then we argue it out as a staff and narrow down the list.”

As always, the XXL Freshman Class will be celebrated with live shows in NYC and LA. This year they happen at Playstation Theater on July 22 and LA’s Novo on July 25. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/21) at 10 AM local time. Exact lineups may vary.

Megan Thee Stallion also announced a tour with Meek Mill, Future, YG, and Mustard earlier this week.
