Watch ‘Trap Queen’ Rapper Fetty Wap’s ‘XXL’ Freshman Freestyle Video
Each year, XXL announces their annual Freshman Class, which is something of a predictive list for which hip-hop artists are most likely to emerge as breakout acts over the next few months. In conjunction with the unveiling of the cover, XXL will be posting exclusive web content online, including freestyle videos from each of the freshmen.
Considering the success of his song "Trap Queen," it should come as no surprise that class member Fetty Wap's freestyle was the first video unveiled today (June 15), along with his XXL profile.
"I just feel blessed. A lot of people don’t get this opportunity. There are a lot of artists out here that didn’t get this opportunity. Honestly, I’m just proud that people actually rocking with Fetty Wap; supporting me to the point XXL picked me and decided to put me on the Freshman list," he said of the honor.
"Now we’re going to keep making new music. I want to accomplish my family not ever having to work again. Once I finish that, I feel like I can accomplish everything. What it means to be a XXL Freshman to me is a good fan base, a good following, great music, leadership, humbleness and basically not giving up on yourself. Even if you weren’t going to make the Freshman list, in your heart you can still make it."
This year's freshmen also include Dej Loaf, Raury, OG Maco, Shy Glizzy, Goldlink, K Camp, Vince Staples, Tink and Kidd Kidd.
