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.

Since pulling up with his debut project, No More Thotties, two years ago, Uno The Activist has blossomed into one of the most consistent rappers in all of Atlanta. In 2017, he dropped off two projects (Sorry for the Wait (Brookes Interlude) and Live.Shyne.Die) and both were filled with slappers. Songs from both projects were streamed over 10 million times. Keeping his momentum in 2018, Uno recently enlisted Rich The Kid for an electric remix of "Fabo." Tracks like that one show he can make bangers, while cuts like "Let It Go" show he can also make good use of Auto-Tune. With a ton of talent and a loyal (and growing) fan base, we shouldn't expect anything but more leveling up from the next potential rap star out of Atlanta.

Now that you've watched 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.

Once you've voted, head over to XXL’s YouTube page to take a look back at the 2017 XXL Freshman Class, which featured A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Aminé, Kap G, Kamaiyah, Kyle, Madeintyo, Playboi Carti, PnB Rock, Ugly God and 10th spot winner XXXTentacion.
