XXL Freshman Class 2012

XXL Magazine revealed its much anticipated Freshman 2012 cover today. Machine Gun Kelly, Danny Brown, Kid Ink, Future, Roscoe Dash, Hopsin, Macklemore, Don Trip, Iggy Azalea and French Montana made the cut for the 5th anniversary.

Although earning a spot on the cover doesn’t guarantee runaway success (ask Lil B or OJ Da Juiceman), it can foretell of greater glory to come. J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar are just some of the more recent, successful alumni. Off first look, A$AP Rock is blatantly missing, but that was his own doing.
