XXL Magazine has released their fourth annual “Freshmen 10″ list, which will appear in the May/June 2013 issue. The cover reveal today picks 11 “freshmen” discoveries of who might be the biggest new artists of the year. A list that saw artists like Wiz Khalifa, Danny Brown, Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore in years past adds each Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul of Kendrick Lamar’s TDE/Black Hippy fam, Trinidad Jame% (“All Gold Everything”), Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, Logic, Kirko Bangz, Travi$ Scott, Angel Haze, and Las Vegas’ own Dizzy Wright, whom was the only artist voted in by fans. Troubled Chicago emcee Chief Keef got the honorable mention spot, coming in at #11.

    I’m disappointed Badass and Bronson had to get publicity this way. XXL is an awful magazine, as evidenced by everybody else on the cover.

  • The man the myth says:

    Exactly Hodges, plus Bronson has been around for 4 years, how the hell is he a freshmen? And who is the goofy white dude?

  • illtalbeats says:

    Trinidad James? really? smh…

  • Dayz says:

    @ the man the myth, the goofy white dude is Logic. He actually has some really dope music out, peep some of his videos on youtube. He should have made the class of 2012. Action Bronson definitely should have been in the class of 2011, Dr. Lecter hello! The rest of the guys are horrible to average at best. No one other than Action or Logic has the possibility of becoming a household name let alone be relevant at all in a couple years, sorry to all the Black Hippy movement fans but they aren’t that great, not bad but just average… Don’t get me started on Trinidad James! GTFOH!!!

  • JustMarv says:

    I’m surprised action Bronson, schoolboy Q or ab soul didn’t make this list last year. I think artists are eligible to make the list so long as they haven’t issued an official album on a major label yet, which explains why mc’s we’ve known about for a while made the list. Since they put so many mc’s on the list that are nearly household names already, why no earl sweatshirt.
