2016 XXL Freshmen

  1. 1.
    Lil Yachty
    He's weird. He's different. And he's fucking awesome. Yachty brings something so new to the hip hop scene, and his sound is so original. A lot of people hate him, but I wouldn't expect everyone in the hip hop world to be open minded enough to give him a chance. I could (and have) jam to this guy for hours.
  2. 2.
    Lil Uzi Vert
    It was so hard not to give Uzi the top spot, but don't worry, Uzi is still legit. Like Yachty, he's so different from everyone else in the game. His beats and his voice with his sing rap all flows together so perfectly.
  3. 3.
    21 Savage
  4. 4.
    Lil Dicky
    Dicky is huge because of his comedic angle to rap, but he is just as musically talented as anyone on this list, now or in the past. His variation throughout his music is damn impressive, and his attention to detail is impeccable.
