Who’s Up Next?
Who’s the front runner in the 2017 XXL Freshman Class? If you’ve had the opportunity to watch XXL’s cipher, you would agree with us that SuperDuper Kyle has come out ahead. With his clear and understandable lyrics, compared to his mumble rap counterparts. Although Kyle’s speech impediment may have held him back during his rise to fame, it has certainly provided a brand and level of independence for his musical ability.
The cover of XXL Freshman Class of 2017 includes the likings of Bay Area’s Kamaiyah, The Bronx’s A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Philadelphia’s PnB Rock, Tokyo representer Madeintyo, Atlanta’s Playboi Carti, Portland’s Aminé, Atlanta’s Kap G, Ventura, Calif.’s Kyle; Houston’s Ugly God and 10th Spot winner XXXTentacion. Although most of them are well-known in their hometowns, these are fresh faces for the rap/trap scene known as today’s popular culture. Amine has proven his noteworthy skills in various music videos and songs – leading the class into the new year.
