The XXL Freshman List isn’t too far away now as we prepare to see who the supposed new faces of rap are. In recent years we have seen success stories like Kendrick Lamar and Chance The Rapper come out of this system, as well as some truly unsuccessful cases such as Iggy Azalea and Desiigner; but who will be on the list this year? Viberant have predicted the names here:
In August 2017 Lil Uzi Vert and XXXTentacion were number one and two on the billboard 200. This was a massive indication that the rap game was changing once more. Their style is fresh and it appeals to the millennial audience in a big way. More people are jumping on Soundcloud and more than ever people are gaining mainstream exposure from it, but will these Soundcloud rappers take over the rap scene in 2018.
