It’s that time of the year. XXL returns with their annual Freshman Class list. Now, in its 11th year, the publication unveil their picks of young stars leading the new generation of rap. Dreamville’s J.I.D, Memphis star BlocBoy JB, and Miami’s new hitmaker Lil Pump lead the pack. Smokepurpp, Stefflon Don, YBN Nahmir, Wifisfuneral, Trippie Redd, and Lil Skies (who refused to attend the photo shoot) round out the final spots, gracing the cover entitled “We Got Clout.” Like every year, fans can expect XXL to roll out freestyles, cyphers and solo interviews from the 2018 Freshman Class over the next few weeks.

Catch all the artists at the XXL Freshman show, taking place on Jul. 11 at New York City’s Terminal 5 and Jul. 19 at The Novo in Los Angeles. Tickets can be purchased here and here.
