Jacquees’ Pitch for XXL Freshman 2016
XXL Freshman 2016 is coming and the freshman hopefuls are gearing up to possibly make this year’s class. With the 10th Spot voting happening now, we have to let the potentials tell us why they should appear on this year’s cover.
The next pitch comes from Jacquees. The 21-year-old has been signing since the age of 12 and is adamant about rebirthing traditional R&B but with a twist as he also raps, a term he calls "Swang". Throughout his career, the ATL native has unleashed five mixtapes and several EPs. He's currently signed to Cash Money Records garnering the deal from previous collaborations with Rich Homie Quan during the period which the "Flex" rapper worked on Rich Gang alongside Young Thug and Birdman. 'Quees' most recent project, Mood, was released this past January. Watch above as he tells us why he should appear on the coveted XXL Freshman list.
The 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.
