(Update: The Staff at XXL have confirmed this list is a fake https://twitter.com/#!/XXLStaff/status/143903083884318720)
The folks at This Beat Goes have supposedly gotten there hands on a leaked photo (check below) of what should be XXL Magazine’s 2012 Freshman List. If you don’t know, the Freshman List is consistent of rappers who are, in XXL’s eyes, the hottest up and coming artists out. The special issue magazine focus on each Freshman. The annual highly debated and ridiculed list is easily one of XXL’s best selling magazines.
The rumored 2012 class features Moe Green, Rockie Fresh, Jon Connor, Chip Tha Ripper, Future, Gerald Walker, Donny Goines, Dom Kennedy, Marvo, Neak, Say It Aint Tone, Streetz-n-Young Deuces, Kreayshawn, Kid Daytona, XV, Stalley, and Tory Lanez.
This Beat Goes does acknowledge they can’t confirm 100 percent validity, but claim it comes from a reliable source. The issue should hit stores next February or March. If this is the real deal, let the debate begins. How do you feel about the possible list? Who do you think should be on or off of it?
