I'm late on this but whatever.

Really happy that Angel Haze, Logic, Schoolboy Q, and Joey Badass made it!

So many dollar sign names. Hahaha. But still a good list. Really happy to see Ab-Soul on it, he's the ideal "freshman" choice in my opinion, the guy with a world's worth of potential to explore who you can tell still hasn't shown what he can do quite yet. All of the picks are pretty expected but for a good reason.

This may be the most worthy cover yet, imo.

I agree. Most of em are very half-and-half but this one pretty much nailed it.

Who the heck is Travi$ Scott? He's the only one I've never heard of. Worth listening to?

He's on TI's label and signed as a producer to G.O.O.D. Music, I haven't listened to him much outside of his verse on "Sin City" from Cruel Summer which was pretty "meh", and he was apparently a part of "Blocka" by Pusha which is a jam of course. But I haven't heard much from him, and what I have heard hasn't really left me intrigued.

Trinidad James ftw.......lol
As much as I don't care about him it makes sense that he's a freshman for sure haha.

Yeah there's like three that I'm whatever about but that's saying something out of the 9 they have on here. XXL did a good job this time.

Schoolboy Q is considered a "Freshman"? He's had some success already but I guess this honor means "mainstream success"?
