If you watch Hou$e of Lie$, you'd know who Megalyn Echikunwoke is. Trust me, you need to watch Hou$e of Lie$ if only for catching her bucket-nekkid half all the time.

We've all seen the list, and we all know we have our own respective opinions on the matter. Now it's your turn: who would you have rather seen on XXL's 2012 Freshmen list, and who would you have replaced for that artist?

Oh, and for archival eye candy purposes hit the jump...

    ASAP Rocky would have made the list but he turned it down. He didn't want to be on it so no need to complain about him being snubbed.

    Its kind of hard to know if all of these guys would fit the criteria for freshmen. I mean Yelawolf made it a year or two ago and he had bounced from like three labels so its kind of foggy. So because of that I am just title my list people I started listening to the past year or so that seem like they should get more props then they do....list haha.

  • ClaudeJulien

    Dickriding Elzhi was sooooo 2007. The Preface was great, and he's one of the most technically gifted rappers ever..but umm Elmatic is all he could produce for the past three years? Really? A fuckin tribute mixtape? Get some originality and creativity and craft your own shit. Even his concept tracks on The Preface were just flexin nuts in technical rap which is cool, but it limits replay value. He's boring.

    The only thing for this is that these rappers weren't spittin in 03 (like fuckin DAnny Brown) or spitting back in 2006 like XV. All the one's I listed came out in 08 or later, so they are "freshmen." All of these had some hype with their team, maybe Laws not as much, so I don't see how yall puttin on MCs that had no hype the whole year pretty much. You can't make this list without talent AND hype, even if it's just on twitter. It's not a best of 2011/12 list it's a "freshman class" what makes the MCs fresh is talent & hype. I don't listen to three on my list, but it is what is.

    Do people still buy XXL mag? This ain't 1994 their opinion is irrelevant. I mean every yr this happens, 85% garbage + 15% pure lyrical aspiring artists. And every year AFTER ____ gets named they fall into the abyss never to be heard from again.
