XXL’s Freshman Class Of 1998: What We Would’ve Said


In the years leading up to 1998, Canibus had established himself as one of the most vicious and respected rhymers to hail from the East Coast. After making a name for himself ciphering with the likes of the Wu-Tang Clan, Bis got his first big break in ’97 when he appeared on LL Cool J’s “4, 3, 2, 1,” which ultimately sparked feud between the two MCs. The beef spawned what many fans consider one of the best on-wax disses with Canibus’ “Second Round KO.” Eventually, Bis linked up with the Fugees’ Wyclef Jean, who later co-produced his debut LP Can-I-Bus.

    Kurupt came out in ’92… Why would he be on one years later?

      Well many freshmen started a couple of years ago too, there has never been any rule that says you have to be completely fresh to be a freshmen.
