Last week XXL announced their 2017 Freshman class, including some of hip-hop’s hottest new and upcoming artists.
After social media sounded off with mixed opinions of the new class, XXL gave more to talk about with today’s release of the first freestyle and interview with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.
The rapper used his interview to express his grateful feelings toward being on this year’s cover and his goal to motivate and inspire people through his music.
His 49-second freestyle consisted of a rap-sing feel with a steady flow.
