XXL Announces 2012 Freshman Class Cover

XXL has released their annual Freshman Class cover showcasing the hottest up and coming youngsters in hip hop. This year’s class includes:

  • Future
  • Roscoe Dash
  • Kid Ink
  • Machine Gun Kelly
  • Danny Brown
  • French Montana
  • Macklemore
  • Don Trip
  • Hopsin
  • Iggy Azalea

Although this list doesn’t guarantee the success of these youngsters (Lil B, OJ da Juiceman) it does put them with likes of such successful acts as J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Nipsey Hussle (2010 Class members), Mac Miller, Yelawolf, Lil Twist, Kenderick Lamar, Diggy Simmons, Meek Mill, & Big KRIT (2011 Class members).  You may notice the absence of ASAP Rocky, possibly the biggest new name in hip hop.  Well, that seems to be his own doing.  Keep and eye out for the XXL 2012 Freshman Class Mixtape and until then bump the 2011 and 2010 tapes.  There has already been tons of critical response to this list; both positive and negative.  What do y’all think?
