XXL Magazine has released their May/June 2013 issue, introducing their XXL Freshman 2013 Class. For those who are not familiar with this tradition, each year XXL Magazine a creates a list of newly upcoming artists, then allow the public to choose the artists they want to see in the XXL Freshman Class. Not just any artist is chosen to be apart of the poll. XXL mag evaluates singers and rappers that they feel have the potential and talent to have the opportunity. There are only 10 slots to be filled in the freshman class. This year, 2013, the XXL Freshman Class consists of: Schoolboy Q, Trinidad James, Joey Bada$$, Ab-Soul, Logic, Action Bronson, Kirko Bangz, Travi$ Scott, Dizzy Wright, Chief Keef, and Angel Haze.
I’m happy to see that young female rapper, Angel Haze, made the list. She is a rapper that I have been listening to for a few years now. I’ve followed up on her journey as a poet and an artist, supporting every step of the way. I think it is awesome to see her come to the forefront and shine. I like be able to see an artist grow and become successful! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Angel Haze, you can check out her music and follow up on her by visiting the links below.
