The 2017 XXL Freshman class will be revealed this summer and now the Freshman hopefuls are here to show and prove why they deserve a spot in this year’s class. The 10th Spot voting is happening now, so each of the potential Freshman are letting you know why they should appear on the 2017 XXL Freshman cover.

Crystal Caines is one of the newest female faces in hip-hop coming out of New York. A multitalented threat with skills in production and engineering, Crystal is also a gifted singer and rapper. In 2014, Crystal released her debut single “Whiteline” featuring A$AP Ferg, and in that same year, she teamed up with the Harlem rapper again, to produce a few tracks off of his Ferg Forever mixtape. By 2015, Crytal was producing for the likes of BIA, Smoke DZA, Al Doe and her longtime collaborator Ferg once more. Now, as she gears up to release her first solo project, Crystal looks to be the multi-talented threat that the 2017 Freshman Class seeks.
