Behind the Scenes of XXL’s Freshman Class 2013 [VIDEO]

(AllHipHop News) Since it’s inception, XXL’s “Freshman Class” cover has sparked debate. This year’s classmates are no different.  Action Bronson, Schoolboy Q, Travi$ Scott, Trinidad James, Ab-Soul, Joey Bada$$, Kirko Bangz, Angel Haze, Logic and Dizzy Wright and Chief Keef are set to blow this year. Check out the behind the scenes.

    action bronson is no rookie

    • Pedro Matos Jr.

      He been makin music but since he ain’t put out an official album yet XXL still considers him a freshman I don’t see how Chief Keef qualifies tho.

  • johnblacksad

    no Alley Boy?! wtf?!!

  • hoeyuno

    Ha ha they got action Bronson in there.

  • 7yoyo7

    This is a dope picture. Is this Capital Steez on Joey Bada$$ shirt?
    Where is Smoke DZA?

    But 2010 is still my favorite XXL freshman cover.

      Q and ab soul both from la

  • AK

    soul and schoolboy dont belong on there they been had albums out and they already toured the world with kendrick i feel like they didnt try to find new talent on this at all

    • 7yoyo7

      True. But since Jay Rock and Kendrick both did freshman covers they might as well do it too. On some graduation type of shit lol.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        i could swear i heard of jay rock back in 08

      • MadVillain

        yeah he is def nothing new, he got featured on various BlackWallStreet mixtapes from around that time and earlier. Even Kendrick Lamar was on them sh!ts but he used to go by a different name – K.Dot. no1 gave a fucc about him then so why is it all of a sudden now hes every1s favourite rap artist? lol the rap game is sum funny sh!t…

      • 7yoyo7

        K.Dot wasn’t as talented as he is now. I remember hearing him on Jay Rock’s “Watts Finest” mixtape series, his lyrics were nothing out of the ordinary.

        He just worked hard, stepped his game up and reached a nice level now.

      • MadVillain

        i still dont see the hype, hes aite but there far better emcees than him that slide under the rader
