thehatsmol's "XXL Freshman List 2019 Predictions"
6155
written by thehatsmol
FOREWORD:
XXL is widely known for their annual "Freshman List" which is supposed to capture the next, up and coming wave of rapper for the following year. Prior to this year, XXL has featured G.O.A.T contender artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, and Chance the Rapper, just to name a few. This year we have artists like Yung Bans, MATT OX, Juice WRLD and many more to choose from. In my opinion, the choices aren't too bad. They have a lot of fan favorites (only problem is they scrubbed my boy Rich Brian). I feel like if XXL choices the right contenders, this could go down as one of the best Freshman List of all time. The artist I've listed have either shown potential or seems to be far from stopping. Also, the numbers on the list aren't my ranking, they are just to keep track of the 10 freshman (and Honorable...

Background: Jacques Bermon Webster II, known professionally as Travis Scott, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer. In 2012, Scott signed his first major-label deal with Epic Records. His career took off when he released a single titled “3500” along with features from Atlanta trap rapper Future and College Park, GA native 2 Chainz. His other single released the same year, “Antidote”, is a solo track that soared to the top of the rap billboards and peaked at #4 on rap. He promoted the album with a mixtape titled “Days Before Rodeo”, which has some of his more memorable songs if you are a true Travis Scott fan.

Over the last week the Uzi community has came together and gotten 3 Group Buys done in a matter of hours on each given song.

The EP begins with “Call Out My Name”, a steep departure from the electronic soundscape found across Starboy. Sampling his own smash hit “Earned It”, we’re driven by keys engulfed in white noise along a low bassline reminiscent of his older mixtapes, only to be interjected by panning vocals covered in reverb. Abel recounts the emotional pledges he made to Selena during their time together, marking a sheer contrast from the almost numb, playboy-esque persona he portrayed during his Trilogy period. He...

Skins: A track by track review

Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy has made a name for himself in the Hip-Hop scene, capturing the hearts of millions of fans under the pseudonym xxxtentacion, or a sole intimate x if you're a die-hard fan. A troubled soul, x's debut hit "Look At Me!" peaked at #34 on the billboard charts in 2017 amidst his release from prison on domestic abuse charges.

Due to it's undeniable similarity to Drake's 2016 "KMT" from the album More Life, Look At Me! launched x into the public spotlight, where his name continued to grow at exponential speeds. 2017 saw the release of a staggering amount of music from xxxtentacion - which continued into 2018 with his studio album "?".
STOKELEY - Ski Mask the Slump God

If I were to suggest this album to someone, I would describe it as different and animated. Ski has that sort of bubbly, fun personality and he clearly shows it with this album as well as his past works. This whole project is just us traveling through Ski's unique and cartoon-esque mind where he expresses all his emotions, happy or sad, through his bars and very entertaining adlibs. Some songs you can vibe too and rethink life and others you can turn up and get lit to. This album is bound to have a song for your taste. Ski first introduces his album in the somber, string-based, Adrian Lau-produced song,"So High".
