The Best XXL Freshman Rappers of All Time

In honor of the 2022 XXL Freshman Class being announced, let's take a look at the best XXL Freshman rappers of all time. Since the first 2007 class of up-and-coming rap artists, the annual XXL Freshman Class serves as the most accurate prediction of future hip-hop superstars across the music industry. Over 150 esteemed rappers have joined this prestigious group, including Grammy Award-winning artists Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, Macklemore, J. Cole, and Anderson .Paak. While many of these rappers have broken countless records and continue to sell out concert venues worldwide, some of these rappers passed away too soon and currently rest in power, such as the great Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, and Pop Smoke. Their legacies live on forever, and their music will always inspire the next generation of rap's leading talent.
