XXL unveil the freshest rappers out for 2015

So the 2015 XXL freshmen cover was finally released last week. Among the list include Dej Loaf, Fetty Wap, Goldlink, K Camp, Kidd Kidd, OG Maco, Raury, Shy Glizzy, Tink and Vince Staples.

Always an important moment in hip hop, the XXL freshmen list showcases the best aspiring rappers, whilst predicting the leaders of the new school. From the looks of things this list doesn’t hold the same weight, as previous covers that introduced the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mills, Big Sean, J. Cole and many others, but it’s probably too early to judge.

One thing for sure is fans and music critics have expressed their disappointment and scepticism for some of the artist chosen, The Daily Beast gave their opinion on the list in an article entitled The ‘XXL’ Freshman Class List Is a Joke. Many have questioned the reason to include Kidd Kidd due to the amount of time he’s been in the game.

Video:  Mick Jenkins - P's and Q's

Mick Jenkins' mind blowing new song 'P's and Q's', most of which only consists of words beginning with P and Q, now has an equally mind blowing set of visuals to go with it. Rewinded, slow-motion footage makes the Chicago Rapper appear to be walking cinematically forwards whilst all around him cans of silly string and water guns are let off in reverse. Watch the video below.
