Taking a little more time to come up this year’s list, today XXL has revealed the list for their 2014 Freshman class. The hip-hop periodical keeps their annual list going strong after seven years, and as with years past, the final roster doesn’t seem to please everyone. This year’s winning 12 includes Chance The Rapper, Isaiah Rashad, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan, Vic Mensa, August Alsina, Troy Ave, Kevin Gates, Lil Bibby, Jon Connor, Lil Durk and being voted in by fans, Jarren Benton. This year the magazine decided to add in a few artists from the R&B side of things to give the list a little shake up, but for the most part the choices seem fairly safe. Starting next week we can expect their roundtable interviews as well as their anticipated cyphers. Let us know your thoughts on the list down below and be sure to pick up your copy when it hits newsstands.
