      I’m not usually one to say that a guy should be on the list just ’cause I like his music, but seriously. Hopsin and Swizzz make a heck of a lot more sense than Meek Mill and Diggy.

        Maybe hopsin but not swizz. Hopsin aint on here cuz he doesnt have a buzz like the rest of the dudes on here(even tho his buzz is pretty high). YG,twist and lil b suck. Diggy can spit but he aint ready for the cover yet.

      Salute to everybody on there!!! They got they own lane and it’s time ppl start recognizing that!!! Everyone on this cover deserved the spot because they were grinding the hardest!!! Alot of artists can take notes from the promotion grind they were on cuz it worked for them

      • Dat Dude

        I agree that these guys hustle super hard, but hard work is only part of it. If Vanilla Ice released a mixtape every month and toured everywhere it wouldn’t mean he’s gotten better. Lil B is and will always be Ass… The Pack was pretty dope but he was ALWAYS the weakest one.

      • TigerPawRaw

        I’m so sick of how when people are talkin bout how ill someone is, they mention the way they promote themselves, or how many views they got on youtube, or any other shit that ISNT their music, which is the shit that’s important (or at least was, way back in the day {I’m 28 now, and been bumpin hip hop serious since i was 14}). I feel like ever since mid 2000′s, arm-chair a&rs/execs been floodin’ the net, and the shit is irking the fuck out of me. Nothin against any of the cats on this list (I actually really fuck with a few of these dudes music this year), or not saying it’s not smart to promote yourself like some of these guys have, just sayin’ people shouldn’t be using those things as ways of validating how ill a rapper is. That shits stupid.

    • vinnie

      thats what i’m saying.. lil b is a joke.. i wish chip tha ripper made it instead of him..

      • XXL

        it based on fan base for real and lil b has a big fan base and lil twist does to

        • T

          What a stupid thing to base it on. Isn’t the point of this to HELP artists get a bigger fan base?

          • Taj

            fan base is the only way to truly judge, skill is hard to judge because different people have different views on what makes a rapper good or garbage. fan base lets you know they are being heard and are wanted to be heard. even if you dont agree their mass of fans would tell you they are nice

        • the purple giver

          thats mad wack. talent should be more of a chosing factor then fan base. shit, more people know of soulja boy then J. Cole but we all know that Cole is a farrr better artist. weak

          • NLA

            Please do your research before you start talking about someones talent. Most of the music you see from Lil B on his youtube is a joke. He has some real talent if you look at a lot of his stuff. Like songs from “Evil Red Flame.” He is a popular newcomer to the game and is doing his thing so stop hating

          • J J

          Only reason he’s got all that money is the uneducated fanbase he appeals to. Ya want real hip hop? Try K.R.I.T, Mac, or CyHi; be warned though-if ya like B, you may have a hard time followin real hip hop

    This class has some potential just like years past but some of these artists are going to go much further in terms of popularity than they already achieved. Every class has some busts just like the NFL or NBA Drafts in a way that’s kind of what the XXL Freshman Issue is. XXL is like the Mel Kiper of up and coming rappers, they see the artists potential in the music scene but its up to the artists to play up to that potential and show they have what it takes to make it BIG.

  • Sha

    Lil Twist? I’m lost what mix-tape or big song feature did he have? No Dom Kennedy, Chip tha Ripper, XV, JAY ELECTRONICA? Yall could of put Willow Smith to replace Lil Twist. But, every year the cover have flaws…Salute to those who made it.

  • Alex

    It’s a shame that FowL isn’t getting any recognition. The kid is taking the MW by storm, with production from Black Milk and his Red Bull National MC Victory in front of Eminem himself. The kid has talent, but this garbo is just about who has the best agent. Shouts to Mac Miller and K.R.I.T. though.

    And XXL is in a COMA as far as XV goes… that kid should have been on LAST year’s cover and you snubbed him AGAIN.

    Really, just a terrible list and the fans are echoing that statement aside from the standouts like Mac and a select few others.

  • t

    No Chip tha Ripper? No Dom Kennedy? No Travis Porter?

    but, Lil Twist? seriously.

  • THE TRUTH

    Its an awful list but to be honest there was nothing that good last year 2 choose frm, appart frm wiz because he made it mainstream but even he’s fallin off now

  • BasedBoy

    good list! LIL B & Meek Mill!!!!!!! but yall are missing Sam Adams :/

  • otownsfinest

    so many people fucking suck on this list. this magazine keeps disappointing me. every time they have the opportunity to prove that they actually care about hip-hop, they do some bullshit move like show pics of rappers eating (who the fuck cares) and then they put a bunch of terrible rappers on the freshman list, basically WHERE THE FUCK IS ODD FUTURE

  • youalreadyknow

    THIS IS BULLLLLLLSHHHHHITTTTTT…ITS TO MANY LABELS WITH THEY HAND IN THIS SHIT…ITS CLEARLY NOT BASED ON WORK ITS BASED ON RELATIONSHIPS AND BROWN BAGS…PAYOLA….FUCK OUTTA HERE

    • Elementz Emcee

      That’s the music industry. Matter of fact, that’s ANY industry. It’s a double edged sword. Relationships count when it comes to gaining notice amongst your peers. And, you can’t hate for whatever artist having a solid fanbase (hence Lil B) so that’s what you should understand. It never said 2011 Independent Freshmen Class so yes most of these artists’ have a major or indie/major deal. It is what it is but I continue to support L.E.P. Bogus Boys, Dom Kennedy, XV, Chip Da Ripper, etc.

  • robert

    wat about King Mez Or Stalley Or XV.

  • Elementz Emcee

    It is what it is. The 1st pick of the NBA or NFL isn’t always the best player chosen right? So what’s the difference? From an artist point of view, I’ll just take notes on every artists’ way of getting that exposure to get to this point. From a fan point of view, I’m still gonna have my personal favorites aside from the ones I root for in this year’s freshmen class. Continue to support who you feel needs it and let it be.

  • airbourneaquarium

    wheres tiron? jay electronica shouldnt be on the list, he should have his own damn issue haha. no dom kennedy? man…

  • RidgeMatthews

    I understand u guys added eleven, for the whole ” 2011 ” freshman, but if your taking the opportunity to add one more extra artist, can u make sure they atleast have people who like them??

    What made u think that ” YG ” Was an artist? He’s not the type to luck up like souljaboy and make more hits. Hes a jerk/TIU dance rapper. “Patty Cake” and ” Toot it and Boot it” are the only songs we are gonna hear from him.

    FredtheGodSon…. Generally weak ive seen that ” so crazy ” video or w.e. the one w. jay z on the hook… shit is sauce

    and Lil Twist??? really… hes with YOUNG MONEY i don’t think this freshman list is doing anything for him. Everyone else deserves it for sure. U guys can never just have a solid list huh… shit. Wheres chip,xv,french montana, or travis porter even? mm mm mm.. shame

  • MassAppeal

    Yelawolf should have been there last year. Fred the Godson, YG, and Lil Twist will not do anything worth of significance in their rap career. And while I am not surprised he is not included, Tyler The Creator/OFWGKTA will be bigger then everybody on this cover, guaranteed.

  • Angry at 2011 Freshman

    Wheres Chip Tha Ripper, French Montana, Vado, LOS !
    C’mon very Disappointing

    I’m glad Big K.R.I.T., Mac Miller, Diggy Simmons, Yelawolf & KENDRICK LAMAR made the list but, Chip the Ripper, XV & Dom Kennedy should be on there over the rest(Lil’ Twist, Lil B, & YG) and who the hell is FRED DA GODSON??? seriously

  • frankieee

    This list has like half i agree with and half nooo.

    Lil B-FUCK NO, he sounds like a 50 Tyson improvement.

    I Completely agree with
    –>Mac Miller- K.I.D.S. blew up. hes touring putting in work and starting a movement across the country.
    –>Big K.R.I.T – Working with the big dawgs right now, and making a big name for himself.
    –>CyHi Da Prynce- Coming up Big with a good flow and Royal Flush Came out hard.
    –>Diggy- Been putting in big work since like 09, He’s been known and his flows is dope. he’s gonna blow up even bigger with a great style.
    –>Kendrick Lamar- The Kendrick Lamar EP was sick, and OD just released months ago and did great.
    –>Yelawolf – Alabama white boy doing it big. I like him for his unique style of rapping. His Beats, lyrics and mentality is something new to hip hop. which i appreciate. And he’s doing a lot right now, especially signing with Shady.
    –>Lil Twist (DEBATEABLE) – Still young, and with Young Money, under Lil Waynes arms and alongside Minaj. Aside from his young sounding voice he’s been doing work, shooting videos like crazy and keeps bringing out music. All i can say for this young catt is = DOING WORK. thats the only reason why he might deserve this spot.

    People That NEED to be ADDED are…
    –>DOM KENNEDY, TYGA, CASSEY VEGGIES, SCHOOLBOY Q, SHAWN CHRYS in thath order.

    ******DOM KENNEDY AND TYGA SHOULDA DEFINATELY BEEN ON HERE THO****

    FUCK THIS YEARS XXL MAGAZINE YALLL!!!!!!!

    • Mr.Panda

      for sure with Dom bro, and ur right about lil b lmfao

    Tyler, The Creator anybody?

  • Haute

    There are plenty of people that we all had hoped would make the list and every year there are several artists that fly either too high or too low for the XXL Freshman radar let’s just hope the one’s that deserved it fly high.. They have missed several over the past 3 going on 4 years (Drake and Nicki last year, also XV just to name a few) but this list is solid I would say 7 of them have very a good chance to be highly successful..It’ll be a solid year listening to these men in the future and looking forward to the debate over the 12 for 12 in 12, peace

    Ya’ll got some bums on there. If there’s not enough legitimately dope talent out there just put out a list with four or five truly dope MCs. I mean, put this cover next to 2010 or 2009 and it’s just embarrassing. Have some integrity.

  • jonathan

    what an awful list xxl… only people who deserve it, are mac miller, kendrick, krit, cyhi and lil b… lil’ twist is honestly the biggest joke i have ever seen man. what has he done to distinguish himself over a vado or a xv or a chip tha ripper. that spot was straight bought by young money. great journalism xxl keep it up…

    The homie Mac Miller definitely deserves it. Shout out to Allderdice high school (my school) which produced Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.
    But they passed up FOR REAL on Dom Kennedy. That’s my biggest disappointment of all. Although it’s nice to see Kendrick Lamar up there, he’s realest.

Dom, CurT@!N$ and Vado all have put out consistent quality material over the past years and you give it niggas that basically made it over night!! Like what type of longevity do they have in this industry, None! Give it niggas that work hard and deserve it!!

    • Keith

      fuck whoever says these dudes ain’t got longevity. they dont need longevity! its a FRESHMAN list. they supposed to be overnight success. some will make it, and some will fizzle out. i thought lil twist would have fizzled out by now tho.

  • originalframe

    These fools look like a re-run of 2000-2005 rappers all worn out played out & shut down. such a horrible selection of people to put on the list, looks like you picked names out of a hat to place on the front cover of the magazine. these fools are done with school posing with high school books like they are kids. so un-clever of any of them to even try to represent bulls–t as they do. they all look like rappers that are out now, ex: gucci, paul wall..etc lame cover.

    Fred nice wit the wordplay, but he don’t have an 1/8 of the buzz, and Vado’s makin good music right now
    I’m glad Krit made the cover though, him and Spitta are all I bump these days
    Oh yea, replace Lil Twist wit Dom Kennedy

  • Deadson85

    Meek Millz is the nicest out of all of em then Fred the God

    Some people need to give Lil B a chance. Most of his songs on Youtube (at least first page) are hella wack, “Ellen Degeneres” and “Paris Hilton” all those songs are garbage. However Listen to his song “Myspace” and “Walk the World”.

    Tell me he aint versatile, where as most artists use the same delivery in every song.

  • ELL

    No Vado??? xxl F*ck outta here with that bullshit!!

  • Beezy

    Congrats on totally missing the &$@/$ boat on Machine Gun Kelly XXL. I hope to hell he turns your shit down next year. Good luck with the lil twist call. SMH.

    shawn chytopher should have made it he dope and his lyrics are sick and had a video on 106

  • WTF

    Where the fuck are XV & Shawn, fuck YG & lil B!!
    and Yelawolf is way above Freshman right now!

  • SMH

    GTFO. Seriously? XV? MGK? I thought this cover was about the come ups. Yela been out for two years, and is signed with em — nice “prediction.” And lil twista? Yet another OJ da Juiceman year for XXL. Lame.

  • Mike Carter

    wat about jay staccs??

  • http://@_ipunchedsnooki twitterMe

    mann basedgod wanted the 2010 cover but they gave him 2011 so its all good
    he can actually rap when he wants too ( motivation, cold war, fake family, xxl freshman 2010)
    but he can also jo0ke around ( justin bieber, paris hilton, icook etc. )
    he’s pretty versitile if you ask me. and yes i listen to ALL music

  • http://@_ipunchedsnooki twitterMe

    twitter – _ipunchedsnooki

  • Miracle

    Vado needs to be there, XV, Chip the Ripper, Dom Kennedy, Emilio Rojas, Laws, Chiddy Bang deserves a holler at in the group section, and Check out Trey Lane for future freshman stuff Toki Wright too needs some recognition, but they did good by getting CyHi, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T., and Mac Miller. But Im mainly glad Waka didn’t get there but by choosing Lil B and Lil Twist and YG there that didn’t help…

  • Shiz RAW

    Sean Falyon Should Have Made This List

  • http://itsfamous.tumblr.com/ itsfamous

    This is honestly (No hater ish) a horrible line up. Only Credible artist on here is Yelawolf, Diggy, Kendrick Lamar, MAYBE Meek Millz because of his enormous buzz and Cyhi da Prince because he rockin’ w/ G.O.O.D. otherwise he hasn’t proven himself as of yet. Everyone else hasn’t really done anything to suggest they should be on this cover. I feel like xxl just wanted to throw together a line up and you guys failed. Its okay if we don’t have 10 artist on the line up. It just shows where hip hop is at the moment. We should’ve had like 5 people this year including Theo Martins. Well hey if you guys need help next year get at me! lol

    • http://itsfamous.tumblr.com/ itsfamous

      after reading miracles post. She is so right you guys really could’ve filled this line up with some better artist. XV is killing it right now but I would’ve saved him for next year he is growing still. Dom kennedy deserves to be on this list and Chiddy Bang deserves it as well. These are artist that are grinding and should have some recognition.

  • XXLislame

    Chris Webby deserves to be on the cover he is completely self made. Mac we all know half of your fans are real wiz fans. Bigger fan base than krit as big a following as yelawolf only rapper to diss barstool. Did I mention self-made to sold out shows?

  • ImYoung

    No Los?????WTF What about Tory Lanez or Kid Ink???

  • No Name

    Diggy, CyHi, Yelawolf, Big KRIT, Kendrick Lamar……**shrugs at everybody else**

  • Puppit

    Lil B, shit. Alright here we go. This kid has some skill, yeah, but in every song of his I’ve heard there are a lot of rhymes in his tracks that are whack as FUCK, and several times in each song his flow got off beat. The concepts on his Evil Red Flame record are alright, positivity in Hip Hop is always appreciated, but God damn man. There are so many MUCH MORE talented newcomers that didn’t make the list. WHERE THE FUCK ARE HOPSIN AND SWIZZZ? They make EVERY rapper on this list look like a bitch, no exception, Yela included.

  • http://twitter.com/kinglewie @kinglewie

    No Dom Kennedy, cARTer, or XV. As much as I hate to say it… I would have rather seen Tyler, the Creator on this one than Lil Twist & Lil B.

  • Graph

    Diggy Is Good But OVERRATED, Lil B Sounds Like 50Tyson Big Brother and Looks Like Gucci Lil brother Nether way you look at it he is trash But does has Fan Base. Good List Over All

    Lil B & Lil Twist.. one word = fail.

    XV, Machine Gun Kelly, Vado, Chip the ripper, Dom Kennedy, I can go on for days with better artist than these clowns. Please XXL your “Freshman Class” bullshit is just another way for yall to make some money of others. Diggy should be on this list, but his uncle & father should have never had any pull on that; which they did. Yall fools no recognizing that half of these cats paid to be on here. Really? Just look at that list & tell me your not thinking the same thing? The only artist on this list that will do decent is = Meek Mill, Mac Miller, Diggy, & Yelawolf. Drop the rest.

    Machine Gun Kelly! Quit sleeping on white boys..

    K.R.I.T, Kendrick, Yelawolf and Cyhi Da Prince were the only ones i really agreed with.
    How Lil Twist, Lil B and Meek Mill, Fred The Godson and YG even go on that list over other people such as Dom Kennedy (truly shocking), XV, Chip Tha Ripper to name a few.

    I understand it’s not all based on talent, since XXL need to sell magazines, but some of these selections like Oj Da Juiceman the year before and Lil B this year… Stop killing our culture slowly.

  • Bryan

    Alright so I am always looking around for new artists and imma tell you who I have NEVER in my life heard from in this cover…

    Fred The Godson and Kendrick Lammar.

    Anyway…. So imma tell you how it should really be…

    If we talking about their quick sucess, and building up a fan base, Mac Miller, CyHi, & Lil Twist, YES Lil B, got it on lock.

    If we talking about popularity these rappers would SHIT on the others.

    & Lets be honest… XXL Staff cant really tell who is the best lyrically, or who’s the most talented. That’s a matter of opinion. But if we talking numbers, like Twitter followers, Facebook fans, YouTube views, # of people per concert. They can count on that…

  • Bryan

    Because if we talking lyrically… Los, should be here and labeled as number one. Straight up. & Most Talented would be like Bei Maejor, & Tory Lanez.

    WHAT IS LIL B DOING THERE?

    • nico

      THEY SHOULD PUT CAPO DIM UP THERE!

    • tasha

      • i know you

        search him up youtube, or google
        THEY NEED TO PUT CAPO DIM UP!

  • DENIS

    MEEK, YELAWOLF, BIG KRIT, KENDRICK LAMAR
    THOSE ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE I FUX WITH!

  • myNAMEisBOB

    i really expected to see capo dim on this list not lil b

    • DENIS

      capo dim is wack but then again lil b isnt all that great

  • me bitch

    the list for the 2010 is way better than this!

  • funk you

    they need capo dim on this list

  • DomJNice

    I’ve yet to see No Clue on a freshman cover, The fastest rapper alive and he has lyrics… Hopsin needs to be on here as well cuz he’s one of the boldest artists walkin right now with hella talent. Yelawolf and Mac Miller the only ones who really are considered worthy on here, the rest of them I doubt we’ll be hearin well from within the next 10 years. If Kendrick, Diggy, and Fred The Godson can develop themselves thru time then I can see them being promising, but everyone else on this cover will be here and gone tomorrow.

  • Tony Black

    ILL MURDER EVER LAST ONE OF THESE INDUSTRY BAMAS BAR FOR BAR!…I BET DONT NONE OF THESE YOUNGINS STILL OWN THERE SOUL…REAL ISH % = 103

  • dice

    best one there is kendrick lamar hands down

  • bradley

    where the fuck is khleo thomas??? he deserves to be on here more than half the dam rappers on the cover. Diggy simmons sucks, cyhi da prince sucks. Yelawolf and Big sean and mac miller are pry the only good rappers on the cover. Khleo thomas is way better than diggy simmons and cyhi he raps about real situations and troubles.

  • brunsk from t.o.

    Wow, lil b is absolute trash and i really havent heard much from any of these other faggets. We make fun of the bitches who listen to Lil B. Cyhi and Mac are both unreal rappers, cyhi in my opinion best LYRACIST in g.o.o.d. , but seriously this list is dust. what about Chip Tha Rip? or XV?? and i havent seen anyone mention his name, but people, look up childish gambino and listen to freeks and geeks right now, you will be fucking amazed

    Erreon Lee shoulda been on this list. Tear the Ground and Go to Hell go hard. The Day The Game Elevated 1, 2 and 3 are dope. If you don’t know, now ya know.

  • JT

    Overall the 2011 class is nice with the exception of Diggy Simmons. Diggy Simmons is terrible and a spoiled little bitch. They should of had put someone else on instead like either Chip The Ripper, XV, Machine Gun Kelly or Chris Webby.

  • tamika

    WHERE IS KHLEO THOMAS ?!!!!! HE SHOULD DEFINITELY BE ON THE COVER !! BS !!!!

  • MIKA

    HOW THE FUCKK DID LIL B MAKE IT !!!? HES GARRRBAAAGE ! WHERE IS KHLEO THOMAS AT ? BESIDES YELAWOLF, MAC MILLER, AND DIGGY… THIS FRESHMAN CLASS IS SHITTTY ! XXL OBVIOUSLY DONT RECOGNIZE REAL RAP, KHLEO NEEEEEEDS TO BE ON HERE. #WORSTFRESHMANCLASSEVER!

    • LEELEE

      I TOTALLLLY AGREE. KHLEO IS THE SHIIT HANDS DOWN & HE DESERVES TO BE ON HERE MORE THAN ANYONE. HE PUT IN SO MUCH WORK THIS PAST YEAR ESPECIALLY WITH SONGS LIKE “IN MY SOUL” & HE DID IT ON HIS OWN. THIS FRESHMAN CLASS ISNT RIGHT

  • JT

    The list is overall pretty straight except for Diggy Simmons. He is nothin more than a spoiled rich kid living off his father’s legacy. And the fact that he had the nerve to say his father had no part in him gettin a deal with Atlantic is ridiculous. Instead of Diggy they should of put somebody different like XV, Chip The Ripper, Chris Webby, Machine Gun Kelly or Big Lou.
