Before the 2020 XXL Freshman class will be revealed this summer, the Freshman hopefuls are here to show and prove why they deserve a spot in this year’s class. The 10th Spot voting, powered by SoundCloud, launches today (March 30), which means hip-hop's rising newcomers are vying for a spot on the 2020 XXL Freshman cover.
Locked and loaded, Hott LockedN is ready for his moment. At 19 years old, the Atlanta rapper is the youngest member of 2 Chainz’s The Real University (T.R.U.) crew. Hott LockedN turned things up in 2019, when his tracks “Buddy Dem” and “Come Get Ya” started to pick up steam. The “Fake Beef/Fake Smoke” rapper kept the momentum going with the release of his mixtape, Locked n da Streets, last year.
Not long after he dropped his first official project in 2019, Hott LockedN showed out on one of his biggest hits to date, “G-Wagon.” That track, as well as several other Hott LockedN-featured songs, appears on the T.R.U. compilation album No Face No Case, which dropped earlier this year. In 2020, Hott LockedN prides himself on the fact that the ladies love him for his "good sex appeal"
