XXL 2015 Freshman Class

XXL’s 2015 Freshman Class is revealed as the annual issue brings about the annual debate and highlights the up and comers from the rap scene that are prime for a big year.

This year’s class: DeJ Loaf, Fetty Wap, GoldLink, K Camp, OG Maco, Raury, Shy Glizzy, Tink, Vince Staples and Kidd Kidd.

Tink reppin’ for the Chi. Any surprises? Kidd Kidd? K Camp? They’re both trending at the moment in Chicago.

My personal favorite of the group: Raury. Lookin’ forward to what’s next for the young Indigo Child outta ATL.

Shy Glizzy “Awwsome”

I’m at a moment in my life where I don’t want to listen to anything that isn’t “Awwsome.” Seriously, who knows how many times I’ve heard this new gem from Shy Glizzy since I caught wind of it a week ago. Infinitely probably. Whatever….I’m ready to get this “Awwsome” summer crackin’. I know this track about to get sh*! heated too. SWISH!

Lil Durk vs. Tyga

Over this weekend, Lil Durk first took aim at Tyga with some serious bars on his new “Chi-Raq” freestyle with Meek Mill and Shy Glizzy. Basically… Tyga, don’t come to Chicago.

Tyga was quick to flip a new track and only released a preview of it on Instagram with this line directly addressing Durk.

Who the fuck is Lil Durk, I dust you like ashin’ purp

Durk then tweeted back, “Location on we can go and meet.”

I post this under the fear that this may actually escalate.Β Read XXL‘s interview with Durk for the full story on how this beef even got started in the first place.
