Yelawolf Headlines XXL Freshman Cover Release

Posted on February 22, 2011


Recently signed by Eminem and now named to XXL's Freshman class of 2011, Yelawolf is having a pretty good year so far.

With Rap Radar and other sites releasing the XXL Freshman cover photo, everyone on Twitter seems to think it’s a really weak class this year. Yelawolf, Mac Miller and CYHI the Prynce are the only well-known rappers, and even that’s stretching it a little bit. The most popular name has got to be Diggy Simmons, son of the famous/infamous Rev Run of Run DMC and a completely unknown rapper. While this is obviously a weak list, just take a look at 2010’s freshman list, which included such busts as Pill and OJ da Juiceman. It also had sleepers like Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole and Nipsey Hu$$le, so before everyone gets all upset just wait and see. Every year everyone gets upset about who’s on the list and who’s not, and I’m sure next year will be no different.
