XXL‘s 2011 Freshman Class – List Leaks a Month Early

Well, thank you to whomever leaked this cover pic of XXL a month or so before it is supposed to come out. This issue is a Cosby Sweater favorite every year, one which highlights XXL’s choice young hip hop artists which usually end up breaking out in the upcoming year. Starting at the top left: Lil Twist, CyHi Da Prynce, Big K.R.I.T., Meek Mill, Diggy Simmons, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf, Fred The Godson, Mac Miller, Lil B, and YG.

We decided to add a video of each artist to let you decide if any of these young folks will make the next step. You have officially been put on notice.
