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...

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".
