DJ Akademiks also thinks the entire thing should have been "cancelled. No [cap]."

XXL revealed its annual Freshman Class roster on Tuesday (August 11), Hip Hop’s 47th birthday. 2020 honorees include Chika (and her dog), Polo G, Calboy, NLE Choppa, Lil Tjay, Fivio Foreign, 24K Goldn, Mulatto, Rod Wave, Babe Keem, Lil Keed and Jack Harlow.
