Winner's Circle: XXL Freshmen 2012 Predictions


With the new year fast approaching, it's only a matter of time before XXL's annual "Freshmen" edition comes out where the magazine chooses the up and coming artists that they believe are poised to break out and have the biggest 2012. Phillmatic and I figured we'd beat them to the punch by sharing our own picks with the Winner's Circle. We're not so much predicting XXL's list as we are making our own because unlike the magazine we aren't influenced by industry pressure or label bribery influence. We encourage any and all feedback and don't hesitate to share your own list in the comments.
