Lil Pump, Trippie Redd, Smokepurpp, And More Are XXL's Freshman Clout Class

Lil Pump Trippie Redd

Three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and complaining about XXL 's annual Freshman class.

Yesterday (June 12), XXL revealed its The rest of the class, with the exception of one, hails from the South. YBN Nahmir is from Alabama and hit the scene with the viral ' Rubbin Off The Paint ,' which many compared to Texas rapper Tay-K's ' The Race .' BlocBoy JB is from Memphis and has seen his stock rise ever since Drake hopped on ' Look Alive .' J.I.D, in a surprising turn of events, is the only artist from hip-hop's current hit capital of Atlanta, but his style is closer to J. Cole — who he signed to in 2017 .

In regrettable news, the only female rapper to grace the cover is British rapper Stefflon Don. In the 11-year history of the list, only six female rappers have appeared, with 2015 being the only time two women were on the cover at the same time (Dej Loaf and Tink).

Here are some of the best reactions from fans and the artists featured on the cover.
