XXL Freshman Class (2012)

XXL is going on their 5th year of putting together a “Freshman Class” of hip hop up-and-comers, which is becoming somewhat of a big deal. As always the winners are never who I feel are most deserving, although the outcome is decided by the fans. Check out this years 2012 Class, as well as the FRS freshman class (both independent and mainstream.)
