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.

All 2016 Atlanta rapper MadeinTYO made a buzz around the world with his platinum-selling single, “Uber Everywhere.” He followed that up by his catchy track "Skateboard P," featuring Big Sean. This 24-year-old rhymer is shaping to be a legit star in the rap industry. Showing off his non-stop work ethic last year, the Private Club Records rapper released two critically-acclaimed projects (You Are Forgiven, Thank You, Mr. Tokyo) within a four-month span of each other. This year, he joins Big Sean as an opening act for his I Decided Tour. MadeinTYO's 2017 is shaping up to be another big year for the young MC.
