Jon Connor is one of the 12 Freshmen on XXL‘s 2014 Freshmen list revealed last Mon., May 5, on BET’s 106 & Park. All this month we’ve been providing you with a behind-the-scenes look at the selection process, the photo shoot, and the work it takes to pull it all together. But on May 12, we kicked off the reveal of the freestyles, cyphers, videos and interviews that we captured that day. After starting things off with Chance The Rapper, Isaiah Rashad, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan, Vic Mensa, August Alsina, Troy Ave, Kevin Gates and Lil Bibby, we give you Flint, Mich.’s favorite son Jon Connor. The newest signee to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label has been setting the hip-hop world alight with his #ConnorSeason marketing plan, and dropped two installments of his Best In The World tribute mixtape series, spitting fire over Kanye West and The Notorious B.I.G. beats.
