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.

G.O.O.D. Music has a new artist on their roster, and she goes by the name 070 Shake. The New Jersey native was first noticed in 2016 with her hit "Trust Nobody," which now has over half a million SoundCloud streams. In 2017, Kanye West added her to his G.O.O.D. Music imprint, and fresh off the momentum, Shake released a slew of songs throughout the year. Most recently, she released her Glitter EP, which is the North Bergen, N.J. rapper's standout project to date.

Now that you've heard her 2018 XXL Freshman 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.
