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.
Bronx rapper Justin Rarri prides himself on "coming straight from the mud" and building a loyal following after only being in the game for a year. The 17-year-old Interscope Records signee's biggest song to date, "W2Leezy," has been streamed over 21 million times on Spotify and has 9 million YouTube views. Last year, the rhymer delivered his first official project with 4EVARARRi, a nine-track effort that showcased his knack for melodic-driven rhymes. To kick off 2020, Justin dropped off the guitar-laced ode "RICCHEZZA." With just one year in the game, Justin Rarri is out here making waves and has some more heat dropping soon.
Now that you've heard his pitch, remember to vote for your favorite artist beginning March 30. The 2020 XXL Freshman 10th Spot will run for one week. This is where the public gets the chance to vote an artist into the XXL Freshman Class. Go here to make your vote count for your favorite artist.
Once you've voted, head over to XXL’s YouTube page to take a look back at the 2019 XXL Freshman Class, which features DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, YBN Cordae, Rico Nasty, Gunna, Comethazine, Tierra Whack, Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch, Blueface and YK Osiris.
