Zoey Dollaz’s Pitch for 2018 XXL Freshman
Before the 2018 XXL Freshman class will be revealed this summer, the Freshman hopefuls are here to show and prove why they deserve a spot in this year’s class. The 10th Spot voting has officially launched, which means hip-hop's rising newcomers are vying for a spot on the 2018 XXL Freshman cover.
In an era where Florida dominates the SoundCloud landscape in hip-hop, few MCs from the Sunshine State are as reliably dexterous as Miami's own Zoey Dollaz. As evidenced by at least a few standout freestyles like his flex on Lauryn Hill’s classic, “Doo Wop (That Thing),” he can spit with the best of them. More than just a technically sound lyricist, though, tracks with Chris Brown ("Post and Delete"), Future ("One of One") and PartyNextDoor ("Just Like That") prove he can make function music too.
Now that you've watched his pitch below, it's time to vote. The 2018 XXL Freshman 10th Spot will run for one week. This is where the public gets the chance to vote an artist into the XXL Freshman Class. Go here to make your vote count for your favorite artist.
Once you've voted, head over to XXL’s YouTube page to take a look back at the 2017 XXL Freshman Class, which featured A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Aminé, Kap G, Kamaiyah, Kyle, Madeintyo, Playboi Carti, PnB Rock, Ugly God and 10th spot winner XXXTentacion.
