Every single year, the entire hip-hop world seems to react to XXL’s Freshman list, whether it be for better or for worse. Enter Daily Chiefers.
Each year, we release our own list of Freshman acts that we think accurately represent the underground community, including a few acts that actually become XXL Freshman. Last year’s list included longtime Chiefers favorite Smokepurpp, Playboi Carti, Nessly and a bunch more who went on to have mainstream success. And this year we’ve decided to do the same. So without further ado, check out latest Freshman nominees.
