XXL Magazine was a bit delayed this year with their annual Freshmen List, but fear not - the musical class is now in session, and features mostly familiar faces.

With acts like Dej Loaf, Vince Staples and Shy Glizzy only fairly new to the scene, the list may come off as questionable to some, but undoubtedly all of these musicians stepped onto the scene in a major way in the past year or so. Artists not as well known as them, such as Illinois-bred Tink made the cut, as well as rising star Raury -- a few of these artists have even sat down on the VladTV couch this year.

Take a look at the cover and let us know who should go, who should stay, and who XXL dropped the ball with by not featuring below. You can also check out a behind-the-scenes feature from the cover shoot in the slide up top.
