XXL

The XXL Freshmen 2014 Class was recently announced and includes Chance the Rapper (who hardly feels like a "freshman" in 2014), Rich Homie Quan, Isaiah Rashad, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Durk, Kevin Gates, Troy Ave, Vic Mensa, Lil Bibby, Jon Connor, Jarren Benton and August Alsina. As usual, the class is celebrating by going on a tour, and though all dates haven't been announced we know it hits NYC on June 9 at Best Buy Theater. Not surprisingly, Chance the Rapper isn't on the bill (nor is TDE signee Isaiah Rashad or Lil Durk), but the rest of the class is. Tickets go on sale Friday (5/9) at noon.

Both Rich Homie Quan and Ty Dolla $ign are on Wiz Khalifa's 'Under the Influence of Music' tour which hits the NYC-area on July 31 at Jones Beach and August 3 at PNC Bank Arts Center. Tickets for those shows are still available. Wiz and Ty also both play Hot 97 Summer Jam (tickets).

Chance the Rapper will be in NYC for Governors Ball and Isaiah Rashad will be in upstate NY for The Hudson Project.

Snow Tha Product
Snow

I fuck with her. I like gangsta bitches. We met at South by Southwest and may do a song together. She's thick, she's pretty, but she's not showing her ass. She wants people to hear her lyrics and not that other mess. If she wanted to take off her clothes, men would just die. But they have to respect her for what she's saying--having a nice body and being pretty is just a plus.
The above quote is about Mexican-American rapper Snow Tha Product by Three Six Mafia's Gangsta Boo who reviewed her for VICE alongside other fellow female rappers Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea, Brooke Candy, Angel Haze, Kilo Kish, Kitty Pryde, and more. Not long ago Snow released the Good NIghts & Bad Mornings 2 mixtape which featured guest spots from Ty Dolla $ihn, Cyhi The Prynce and others and incudes standout single "Cookie Cutter Bitches." You can watch the video for that one below. A full length is set to follow sometime this year.

Snow just announced the 'F#*K Your Plans, Come Kick It Tour' tour which brings her to NYC for a show on March 5 at Santos Party House. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed on the tour flyer below.

In other rap news, Chicago rapper Lil Durk, who has gotten some internet love lately, will make his way to NYC for a show on Thursday (1/30) at BB King's. Local fave Troy Ave is on the bill too, as is Chinx. Tickets are on sale now. Watch Lil Durk's video for "Dis Ain't What U Want" below.

A bunch of great local rappers, Kool A.D., Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Meyhem Lauren and Lakutis, will all team up for a hometown show on February 9 at SOB's. Tickets are on sale.

And Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def), who postponed his December Highline Ballroom show, is now set to play the venue on February 27 (tickets).

Other previously discussed hip hop shows include Kanye, J. Cole, 2 Chainz/Pusha T and more. Browse our 'Hip Hop' category for even more. What else?

Pitchfork

Their #1 pick is certainly one of those undeniable songs, whether or not you're a fan of the artist who made it. What do you think of their list? Did your favorite song make it? Any glaring omissions?

Purity Ring at Pop Montreal 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Purity Ring

Purity Ring's debut album Shrines has been a mainstay on Best of 2012 lists, from NME and SPIN to personal lists from Freelance Whales and Bowery Presents' Josh Moore. They also had some of the more visually-striking shows of the year and were the #5 Most Blogged About Artist of 2012 according to the Hype Machine, which we're continuing to fuel with this post. Purity Ring sold out the initial NYC date of their upcoming 2013 tour, so a second Webster Hall show was added (1/12, tickets still available). They've had a big year.

But what did Purity Ring like this year? Corin Roddick, one half of the Montreal duo, gave us his unranked list of favorite songs of 2012. Did "Call Me Maybe" make the cut? Check out his list below.
