Get ready for a late night special. BET will be airing behind-the-scenes footage from XXL’s Freshmen 10 for ’10 cover shoot, as well as performances from the Freshman ’10 Live concert, in the wee hours of Wednesday morning (April 7) on their hip-hop video show The Deal.
The one-hour special, hosted by MeMpHitz and DJ Diamond Kuts, will air in a few hours from 3 a.m to 4 a.m, featuring a candid look at the April issue’s photo session, and interviews with the new cover stars: J.Cole, Pill, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Nipsey Hussle, Donnis, Fashawn, Jay Rock, Freddie Gibbs and OJ Da Juiceman. Pop a can of Red Bull tonight and tune in for the show.
XXL presented the Freshman ’10 Live concert at New York City’s Highline Ballroom last Wednesday (March 31). Pill, Neighborhood Nip, Donnis, Gangsta Gibbs, Rock, and Big Sean showed and proved on the stage before Cam’ron and his new partner-in-rhyme Vado, collectively known as The U.N., headlined the show.
