#FM Trends: XXL Drops the 2019 Freshman Class

#FM Trends: XXL Drops the 2019 Freshman Class

DaBaby, Gunna, Meg Thee Stallion, and BlueFace Headline XXL’s 2019 Freshman Class

Beginning in 2007, XXL will drop a Freshman Class. They will be new coming artists and declare them the next stars of the future. The older we get, the more we complain and ask who are these people. The class would don the cover of the magazine and have a cypher. Indie and unsigned rappers in the infancy of their careers will rap about being better than the class and how they was left off it. This class is strong this year. Meg Thee Stallion is the best of the class in my opinion.¬†DaBaby has a strong following and his hit “Suge” has been climbing the charts. Gunna was just featured on DJ Khaled’s latest album. BlueFace is signed with Birdman and had a hit with “Thotiana”, that had Cardi B and YG on the remix.

The 2019 class has 11 artists.(Meg Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Gunna, Blueface, Rico Nasty, YBN Cordae, Comethazine, YK Osiris, Tierra Whack, Lil Mosey, and Roddy Rich). I introduce the 4 headliners earlier. The rest got a lot of appeal and potential.¬† Roddy Rich is from Compton, he released “Die Young “as a dedication to XXXTentacion. He has done features for the late Nipsey Hussle and Meek Mill. Rico Nasty is from Maryland and expect her to be in the middle of the women running rap wave. YBN Cordae is from Maryland and down with YBN. He was just featured on H.E.R’s new single “Racks”. Comethazine is from St. Louis. His single “Walk” peaked at 20 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart.
