It's that time of year again. XXL Freshmen 2016 is almost here, but first, a vote for the 10th spot is needed. Starting today (March 28), XXL launches the XXL Freshmen 10th Spot powered by MAGNUM Condoms. This is where you, the fans, get to pick one of the artists to be featured in the 2016 XXL Freshmen Class.

Now is the time for artists to get their campaigns and social media accounts ready. If you're nominated for the XXL Freshmen 10th Spot, use Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat or whichever other social media outlet will help get the votes in your favor. Fans, make sure you vote for your favorite artist to take the win. You can even vote once every four hours so keep it locked to the voting page. Previous winners include Kidd Kidd, Iggy Azalea, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton.

The polls will stay open for the next seven days, so there is plenty of time for artists to get their voices heard and fans to make their vote count. Remember to use the official hashtag when promoting on social media: #XXLFreshmen. And make sure you’re following XXL on TwitterFacebook and Instagram to be one of the first to find out when the entire XXL 2016 Freshmen Class is announced.

One of the best parts of the XXL Freshmen experience is watching the cyphers and pitches from the previous years. Head to the XXL YouTube page to check out the 2015 XXL Freshmen Class, which featured Fetty Wap, DeJ Loaf, GoldLink, K Camp, OG Maco, Raury, Shy Glizzy, Tink, Vince Staples and Kidd Kidd.
