XXL

"XXL has revealed their Freshman Class cover for 2013. The cover features ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Action Bronson, among others. They join a list of emcees to be on the Freshman Class list over the years that includes Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller and more." [HipHopDX (via)]
Schoolboy Q plays two now-sold-out shows at SOB's on Thursday. Ab-Soul played there last month. If you don't have a ticket, consider heading to NYU to catch Cakes Da Killa, Killer Mike and eXquire instead.

Many of the rappers featured in this year's Freshman Class were just down at SXSW including Angel Haze who we just posted some pictures of on BV Austin, and Action Bronson who we caught at Viceland and at a Warner showcase.

No one will listen to one single track from any of these disposable fools in 3 years time (or less).

rappers love putting dollar signs in their names. 3/10 in this year's freshman class.

Any song by Mobb Deep > the entire library of everyone mentioned above.

rap is still a thing?

All are trash except Ab-Soul & Logic is ok.

Macklemore doesn't get the respect he deserves, because he's not part of some clique, isn't connected to Lil Wayne, is from Seattle. And he's white.

What garbage. Hip Hop became product years ago.

If I were to write the words "Irish Honey" what would be the first thing to come to your mind?

Joey Bada$$ is the most lyrical, intelligent, introspective young man up there with a ridiculously original flow. Check out his free mixtape 1999.

Really? I just read some of the lyrics. Better than most, which isn't saying much, but nothing special and a fairly limited vocabulary.

^Listen (don't just read) to his track "Righteous Minds" off of 1999. Really.

Macklemore was in the freshman class last year, ya dipshits

I'm happy about Bron Bron. IMHO, SIC ILL also deserved to be on the XXL Freshman list. He's like Logic. No doubt, he'll be on here next year. SIC ILL - Labyrinth Zone Act 1 [Official Video] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22eeZneaGNY
