XXL reveiled their picks for the XXL Freshmen class of 2012. The list includes Machine Gun Kelly, Iggy Azalea, French Montana, Don Trip, Macklemore, Hopsin, Danny Brown, Kid Ink, Future and Roscoe Dash.
I’ve heard of many of the artists on this list and some never before. XXL releases their freshmen list every year with past lists including Kid Cudi, Wale, Curren$y, B.o.B., Asher Roth, and more in 2009 and Big Sean, J. Cole, and Wiz Khalifa in 2010. They made great predictions on whos to be a sucessful act for the year in the past. Will it happen again?
Heres a little about each artist, let us know what do you think about the 2012 Freshmen cover?
FUTURE- He’s been on the rap scene for a while now, but you might have just heard him recently from his track “Magic” feturing T.I. . It’s a dope track to ride down the streets bumpin’ loud (smokin loud?) and head nod too. Oh wait, how can we forget the track, “Tony Montana” ? He’s def making his share of street anthems and of course he’s from Atlanta, Georgia so you know hes a sure in for sucess.
IGGY AZALEA- Iggy is the outspoken white girl from down under who isn’t afraid to say some dirty words to get her point across. Moving to America from Australia at the tender age of 16, she has been hustling hard ever since. She is a bad bitch- effortless yet in your face style comes naturally to the blonde bombshell. Don’t get it twisted though- she doesn’t rely on her looks, she will spit a hot 16 against any dude who wants it. We love her. Congrats on her Interscope record deal! Dope bitches reign.
DANNY BROWN- Danny Brown has been putting on for Detroit for years now. He has a crazy voice, a CRAZY steeze fashion-wise and is not afraid to say what’s on his mind, no matter how it affects his radio plays. He has helped popularize Jeremy Scott‘s collection with Adidas by wearing his “wings” shoes and, most notably, the Tiger Tuxedo. Check out our interview with Guilty Simpson where he shouts of Danny Brown.
FRENCH MONTANTA- This guy has been hustlin’ hard since 2007, alongside friend Max B and his “wavy” movement. I gotta give it to Frenchie hes been working hard at it for years so being added to Bad Boy Records rosters hopefully propels him towards more commercial sucess. He has talent plus he’s street, silly, and kind-of-in-a-weird-bummy-way cute. Check out some classic Frenchie below.
KID INK- Working with 2Chainz, Tyga, Roscoe Dash, and Meek Mill, Kid Ink knows his listeners and how to deliver it to them; either smoothly with a rap/melodic combo or hard rap style. Hard ass down South Beats are whats in and delivering the heat, his rap style goes along well with the other Freshmen in delivering songs for the streets and the club. Oh and did we add he’s kinda cute.
DON TRIP- We first got introduced to Don Trip by Dre from Cool & Dre. Once he put on “Letters to my Son”, the power of this mans word and ability to articulate stories though his lyrics are reminiesent of Tupac. This rapper is from Memphis, Tennasee and has been though it all. Rapping since he was in his teens and now 25 his hustle has proved him sucessful. Working with Empidemic reocrds, it was only expected he would make the Freshmen class. Im serous this guy has talent and in a way which creates movies in your mind while you listen to him. You might even shead a tear. Watch below.
MAKLEMORE- Maklemore is a refreshing take on the regular ish. Working with a live instrumental band, a producer side-kick, and his own lyrical talent, hes already performing for large audiences. An apparent Jordan head, his track “Wings” is fucking crazy and oh so real (hint, it’s about Jordans) ! Alright honestly, you have to hear him yourself. Talented man, no wonder he landed the spot. Oh and he’s handsome.
MACHINE GUN KELLY- One of the two white rappers on the list, Machine Gun Kelly a.k.a.Richard Baker is from Cleveland, Ohio and boy does this white boy have some heat. I’m surprised Aja isn’t in love with him yet, but besides that this guy has a dope flow and reminds me of a young Yelawolf. He’s got a fast flow which rides nice on tracks and hes won two Amateur Nights at the Apollo. Fast toward to 2012, hes on BET with French Montana and signed to Bad Boy Records. Congrats to MGK!
HOPSIN- This MC/producer/artist/director/actor?! has got everything to offer apart from the creepy white contact thing. Apart from that his sound is unique definetly and going astray from the whole club rap scene his flow reminds me of Eminiem with the whole hateful, story-telling, rough sound. Hailing from Southern Cali, he’s reppin’ for the West Coast which is def a nice change from the South rappers on the list.
ROSCOE DASH- This Atlanta-born rapper/singer first burst on the charts with his feature on the Summer anthem “All the way Turnt Up!” featuring Soulja Boy. You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing any of his songs in 2011, now we are all comfortable to hearing Dash being featured on other tracks. “No Hands” and “Marvin & Chardonnay” – automatic successes and its definitively is a connection to Dash and his unique sound.
The release party is being held at The Stage, a great venue in Miami’s Design District.
With a live performance by Cris Cab and Wyclef Jean, the night is sure to be crazy!
Ladies - it’s free for you, and only $10 for the fellas!
“Echo Boom“, presented by Billionaire Boys Club, drops January 31, with features from Wyclef Jean, Pharrell Williams and more. Cris Cab is repping Miami big time, touring across the country and leaving his mark everywhere he lands. Mentored by Pharrell, this singer has the official “cosign” from The BBC and, frankly, is unstoppable. Ever since his cover of Wiz Khalifa‘s “Black and Yellow” a.k.a. the song heard around the world, he has continued to gain momentum. This upcoming album is sure to display the hard work that he has put in, along with a true passion for his art.

Wow so SXSW might be done but that doesnt mean you can re-live the experience virtually though photos!

Whoa ! So nobody would have expected this. Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose have been quite an item for sometime now. Both of them have tattoos, but of course what Amber lacks in tats Wiz makes up for with full body ink.
He recently was spotted with a “Amb” name written near his thumb in cursive.
Could this be? Could Wiz have sealed his affection with ink? Either way he’s an idiot. But you be the judge!
Thanks to TeenSavvy
Back around for the second time , Wiz Khalifa will be in our sunny city performing for the college crowd. This time a pit stop at NOVA Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale . The ganja smoking rapper will be along side Mac Miller , another rising rapper. He’s set to perform April 19 - one day before national smoking weed day (lol) 4/20.
Cool to see colleges and universities down here in Miami bringing some good live music down here. Last time Miami saw Wiz was at the University of Miami concert a few months ago. Thanks to The305.com for the info.

Thats just a teaser , READ MORE !
I gotta say , as an observer to the media…. This is some funny shit. So who knows whatever the hell is going on with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. Love? Dont think so , but Amber Rose has no problem admitting all over Twitter she’s in love with the “Black and Yellow” rap-star.
I’m not one to judge how she feels and I actually feel kinda bad for her because she’s being criticized from all angles. Well girl no one told you to be a lesbian bald stripper – but then again she’s making thousands and im broke. So where exactly did society fuck up with that shit ? FML.
Oh how adorable , this surely is a match made in hip-hop vixen heaven. The blogs are trying to report Kanyes recent tweets in connection to these photos.
Who knows but if I was Kanye I’d just ignore the shit , cause at the end of the day….”YEEZY TAUGHT ME”…. Or didn’t he?
Waiting for a dope ass hip-hop event to come to Miami? Its been weeks now since Wiz Khalifa at the University of Miami and before that real underground rappers havent visited Miami in a while (not including the nightclubs). But an answer to our boredom prayers is answered !
