Tink, Raury, Dej Loaf, GoldLink + More Lead XXL Freshman Class Of 2015
It's that time of year again, folks, when XXL Magazine crowns its latest batch fresh men and women for the highly-coveted cover spot. This year's class features a few surprises, but mostly faces and voices we've long suspected were worthy of the honors, with OKP favorites like Raury (who just rocked Roots Picnic like it was nobody's business) Detroit femme fatale Dej Loaf, Timbaland protege Tink, Cali spitter Vince Staples, DMV disciple GoldLink all leading the pack, along withFetty Wap, Kidd Kidd, OG Maco, Shy Glizzy and K Camp making their debut in the new class. As per standard, we'll be getting some footage of the crew in-cypher within the following days, but for now, we can at least rejoice in the mag's selection of two women for their typically male-dominated list, matching seven years of female selections in this list alone (for reference, Angel Haze & Iggy Azalea were their last two.) So hold tight for the clips of XXL's new recruits in action and if you see any of these promising young talents, give them a hearty handshake and a pat on the back for finally getting theirs.
