XXL’s Freshmen For 2010

XXL Freshmen

Relax and take notes ’cause class is in session. After months of speculation over which rappers made XXL’s third annual Freshmen Class cover, the list of the 10 Freshmen for ’10 was finally revealed last week.

Now is the unveiling of XXL’s April issue’s cover, featuring the 10 Freshmen for ’10. Hip-hop fans got a sneak peak of the mag’s special cover yesterday on MTV2’s Sucker Free, when it was first seen publicly and today (March 1) it hits the web.

The new breed of hustlers includes: Roc Nation’s first signee J. Cole, gangsta rap up-and-comer Nipsey Hu$$le, newly-minted Asylum lyricist Pill, 1017 Brick Squad member OJ Da Juiceman, indie-sensation Wiz Khalifa, G.O.O.D. Music’s own Big Sean, underground favorite Fashawn, Gary, Indiana rep Freddie Gibbs, West Coast phenom Jay Rock and the latest addition to the Atlantic roster, Donnis.

In addition to the special issue, XXL will also be dropping an exclusive mixtape, DJ Whoo Kid Presents XXL 10 Freshman for ‘10 Mixtape next Monday (March 8)—available for free on XXLMag.com, radioplanet.tv and thisis50.com—that will feature new music from all 10 of the cover stars. Whoo Kid will also be playing select cuts from the tape while the artists call in to his show this coming Saturday (March 6) on Sirius/Shade45.
