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.
Lil Gotit wants it all. In just a few short years, the 20-year-old Alamo Records signee has been able to break through the crowded Atlanta underground scene and become a hot commodity. Establishing himself with early collaborations with his brother Lil Keed, it was his 2018 song, “Hood Baby,” and subsequent album of the same name that pushed him into the limelight.
Consistency has been the key for Gotit. He dropped the projects Crazy But It’s True and The Real Goat in 2019, and has kept applying pressure in 2020, with the February release of Superstar Creature. Along the way, he’s collaborated with a who’s who of young hitmakers including Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna and Lil Baby (who appeared on the popular track “The Real HoodBabies”). After joining forces with Lil Yachty and Lil Keed on Zaytoven’s A-Team project in February, Gotit plans to put out Hood Baby 2 this year, which will feature Future. Gotit? Good.
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.
