After premiering the 2014 XXL Freshmen Class on BET's 106 & Park last night, VS and the staff are on a rigorous press run to promote the cover. We kicked things off by stopping by The Breakfast Club, and now we head to Sway In The Morning to discuss the process of putting it all together.

During the interview, we talk about rappers like Problem, Iamsu! and Sage The Gemini, and how they almost made the cut. We also get into our controversial list of the Best Female Rappers Of All Time. (Shouts to Heather B.!)
