Watch A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kyle and Amine’s 2017 XXL Freshman Cypher
The 2017 XXL Freshman class has given hip-hop fans plenty to talk about over the last few weeks with all 10 Freshman freestyles and interviews. To celebrate this year’s cover, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, PnB Rock, Kyle, Ugly God, Aminé, Kamaiyah, Madeintyo and Kap G performed at the XXL Freshman show at the PlayStation Theater in New York City on June 28. Now it’s time for the cyphers.
First up, it’s Kyle, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Aminé. Over production from Sonny Digital, the trio do their thing, dropping some memorable bars. These three will definitely surprise fans with their cohesiveness.
Ventura, Calif.’s own Kyle kicks things off strong. “Super Kyle flew into the scene/I’m down to vanquish dead-beat dads and niggas with too many chains, okay?” he raps while rocking a hot pink hoodie.
Next up is Bronx native A Boogie, who jumps between rapping and singing. “I had to be on that corner until it was morning so me and my niggas could eat,” delivers the Highbridge the Label leader.
And last but not least is Aminé, who gives a spirited performance on his own. The “Caroline” rapper owns the mic, dropping several noteworthy gems in his verse. “Vultures at the altar, tell the pastor to watch his back/My girl said she wanted change and then she got a quarterback,” he spits.
Keep it locked to XXL for the rest of the cyphers featuring Playboi Carti, Madeintyo, Ugly God and XXXTentacion as well as Kap G, PnB Rock and Kamaiyah.
