A month before it’s official release, the XXL Magazine Freshman 2011 cover art leaked with the list of 11 up-and-coming hip-hop artists featured on the cover. The artists on the cover are Meek Mill, Big K.R.I.T., Cyhi The Prynce, Lil Twist, Yelawolf, Fred The Godson, Mac Miller, YG, Lil B, Kendrick Lamar, and Diggy Simmons.
My 3 favorite choices are Big K.R.I.T., Diggy Simmons and Mac Miller. What are your thoughts? Any major snubs (I got a few)? Let us know in the comments, chat box, facebook or twitter.
We would love to hear your feedback since we are putting out our own 11 hip-hop artists to break out in 2011 in early March with a mixtape of all the artists best songs. Don’t want to give you any hints but at least 1-2 artists on XXL Magazine’s list will be on our list.
In other news, you may noticed a related posts widget we added on individual posts. We’re still working on it and hoping that our complete redesign will be done by March.
