Fans React TO 2018 XXL freshman List Snubs
Who should've made the cut?
XXL revealed their annual freshman Class, and the selections have disappointed many fans. While some complain about the overall quality of the list, others are frustrated by the disdain of some artists.
The 2018 First-year student of the Class is made up of the Ski Mask of The Fallen God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, J. I. D, Stefflon Not, BlocBoy JB, YBN Nahmir, Wifisfuneral and Trippie Redd. Lil Heaven was awarded with the 10th place, but refused to attend the cover shoot.
Fans have been expressing their complaints on social media about which artists got snubbed from the 2018 list. Everyone, from controversial figures, such as Tekashi 6ix9ine and Tay-K, critically-acclaimed MCs, such as IDK and Smino, have been defended by the users of Twitter as deserving of spots in the freshman Class.
Take a look at some of the reactions to the snubs below.
