XXL magazine revealed its annual Freshman Class list for 2017, and the response wasn’t so great from Twitter users.
The list features XXXTENTACION, PnB Rock, Kamaiyah, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Playboi Carti, Madeintyo, Aminé, Ugly God, Kap G, and Kyle.
Some claimed Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley was snubbed from being on the cover, including DJ Akademiks. People also stated breakout artists such as Young M.A, Cardi B, and Rich The Kid were absent from the list.
Check out what folks were saying on Twitter in response to the cover.
Tee Grizzley might have gotten snubbed.. that nigga got a energy the game missing in term of new acts. Debut project was too lit also..
