It’s another typically fantastic lineup from XXL mag, introducing their pick of this year’s “Freshmen,” which this year includes one woman—the big-mouthed, buzzy Native American MC Angel Haze—and a clutch of up-and-coming firebrands with a thing for $ signs. Look out for swaggery, sexcentric L.A. rapper Schoolboy Q, who counts It rappers Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky among his collaborators, plus charismatic Brooklynite Joey Bada$$, and 315-lb. nasal-voiced Albanian-American gourmand (and Queens native) Action Bronson.
