2011 XXL Freshman Cover

Well would you look at this. One month before the magazine hits the streets, we get to see the cover of XXL’s 4th annual Freshmen issue. But let’s get a closer look…

Starting at the the left: Lil’ Twist (Huh? Should have included Lil’ Chuckee too and had BOTH Young Money tax write offs on the cover!), CyHi Da Prynce (I agree with this pick), Big K.R.I.T. (Probably the most deserving on the cover), Meek Mill (Okay. M-M-M-Maybach Music!), Diggy Simmons (Diggy definitely wins the “Man, I’m already rich and I just like to rap” pose award. I approve.), Kendrick Lamar (I also agree with this pick),Yelawolf (Should have made it last year, but okay), Fred The Godson (No disrespect to Fred but besides Diggy, that HAD to put a NY nigga on the cover this year. None made it last year), Mac Miller (Surprised, but I ain’t mad at this pick), Lil’ B (Of course. And of course he was the only dude with his shirt off on the cover! Swag.), and YG (Honestly, haven’t really heard much of this guy’s music).

But of course, like the past 4 years, this list will be up for debate. Even with 11 rappers this year, it would be impossible for XXL to please everybody. What’s you thoughts on this year’s Freshman?
