It’s that time of year again. The XXL Freshman cypher has hit the streets.
Twelve upcoming rappers take on an annual killer beat to showcase their skills. Some rose to the occasion as others also fell short. Let’s see who goes crazy in the 2022 XXL Freshman cypher.
The XXL Freshman Cypher
The 12 XXL freshmen split into four groups. Cochise, BabyTron, Babyface Ray and Kali team up. Cypher Nardo Wick, Big30, Big Scarr, and KenTheMan also joined together. SoFaygo, Doechii, KayCyy, and Saucy Santana band together.
Each group freestyles over a different beat created by producer Wheezy Outta Here. If you don’t know, Wheezy is a Grammy award winner. He has also worked with Ye, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, and Future to create top-selling hits.
This opportunity is perfect for each XXL Freshman to flex their rap muscles. Getting to rap on a beat created by Wheezy Outta Here is also a come-up. Some took full advantage of this opportunity and then went.
XXL Freshman Who Stood Out
BabyTron stood out by rapping without a beat, leaving no room for mistakes. Those listening are tuned in to every syllable a rapper utters. Tron also held his own with no instrumental.
Doechii decided to step outside the box during her freestyle. Her unique rap scheme is also hard to ignore. Everything Doechii said then was clear and precise. Nothing was left for the audience to guess. Doechii did not waste one line.
Saucy Santana came to the cypher with one thing on his mind. He came to spit some bars. Santana held nothing back in his freestyle as he was always repping his pride. Nothing was going to stop him from stepping up to the plate.
The Best Freshman Freestyle
KenTheMan also had the best XXL Freshman freestyle. From start to finish, she left little room for improvement. Her bars also remained witty throughout. KenTheMan then continued to raise the bar with each punchline.
“I’m a P, I got some h**s that’s ducked off in the valley/Ask about me, I been 100, my card super valid/I drop a ho, I get another one like DJ Khaled….Saying they don’t like me, liking pictures that’s a contradiction/F**king broke ni**as, getting pregnant, that’s just superstitious…”- KenTheMan
