XXL’s “The 10 Freshmen” Covers

Today I finally saw the covers for December’s XXL, and you know what? They aren’t bad at all (Way better than last year’s “Leaders Of The New School”). It features Wale, B.o.B., Asher Roth, Charles Hamilton, Cory Gunz, Blu, Mickey Factz, Ace Hood, Curren$y, & Kid Cudi. Now, let’s look at this list again: I fucks with Wale, B.o.B., & Asher Roth. I’m happy for Curren$y since everyone counted him out when he left Lil’ Wayne’s crew. I listened to Below The Heavens, but other than that I haven’t really listened to much of Blu’s music. I’m still kinda up in the air about Charles Hamilton. Mickey Factz & Cory Gunz got skills, but I need to listen to them more (Even though they have tons of music out). The same goes for Kid Cudi (I’ve only really heard a few tracks). Oh, and as for Ace Hood? Really? Did XXL owe DJ Khaled a favor? But all in all, the cover/covers (It seems to be a foldout) are kinda dope; you can only put Lil’ Wayne on the covers so many times. What do you all think? Did they missed anybody or should they have left off anybody? (Full Covers Below)
